Gold isn’t worth much. Accenture has a partnership with airlines that lets you pick preferred seats already. Call loyalty support and see if they’ll put you in a challenge for platinum bc you work for ACN and will be traveling regularly.

You get minimum 500 miles each flight, so buy a cheap same-day round-trip flight to somewhere close to get over the line. A few years ago I did LAX->Vegas, had lunch at a restaurant there I wanted to try, and back. The flight was cheaper than the meal. BTW gold on AA has almost no perks, you get more from the credit card partnership than that tier.
