I currently have the Sapphire Reserve since the year it came out. Now that I’m looking forward to family trips, I am thinking about switching to AMEX Platinum (Schwab version). Are there others here doing the same?

I’m thinking the same. CSR is just not worth it anymore after the annual fee hike

You're looking at it all wrong. It's not about card loyalty, it's about maximizing sign up bonuses. You might be eligible to get a new Sapphire sign up bonus. If so, you're better off downgrading your CSR and applying for the CSP for the 80k bonus. If you're still under 5/24, look at other Chase cards that you don't have like Hyatt, Southwest, Marriott, and United. Also look at the Ink cards because they have great bonuses and don't effect your 5/24. After that, then move on to other issuers. If you jump right over to Amex, you potentially miss out on a lot of potential. Amex is great for perks, but the points aren't as useful as Chase's. The Schwab card doesn't get the same offers as the vanilla Platinum.
