I’d cancel the gold and open the delta reserve to get te spend bonus

Platinum gets yearly companion pass ticket which negates fee and has bigger bonus

That's tough. Platinum definitely for the companion fare. Reserve gives you lounge access, a better MQM annual spend benefit than the platinum, a better companion fare, and front of the line per status class for upgrades. Up to you if that's worth $255 over the platinum.

Do you need the annual MQMs? If not, Amex Plat is pretty great for SkyClub + Centurion

For me it has been. The companion pass by itself can cover much of the difference in annual fee - and unlike with the Platinum Delta card, you can use it to book into first class. And while you can obviously never know for sure the factors going into your place on the UG list, there have been numerous times since getting this card where I’ve been the person upgraded into the very last seat in first.

Considering going back to PA. I left PA due to some health issues but I am starting to feel like I left too early. I am a Senior Accountant at a public start up making 80k + equity. I have an offer to go back to a national firm as an S2 at $82 plus sign on bonus. I am really not interested in the work I am doing now and ultimately want to be in management which is hard to see a path to currently - it’s definitely more clear in PA. Am I giving up too much by leaving the equity on the table?
