Is the Amex gold/plat worth it? I used to have CSR but closed it because I stopped traveling and eating out as much

Still don’t plan on traveling or eating out too much, but there’s a 60K/100K bonus point offering

If you're not traveling, the Platinum is hard to justify. The Gold is good if you eat out/order in a lot.

Here’s a referral for anyone that wants the Amex gold!

Referring from the gold card directly is a complete waste of MR. biz plat has a way higher offer.

I have the platinum and it pays for itself easily. It’s 550 a year and there’s a 200 Uber / Uber eats credit, 200 airline fee credit, 200 travel credit, 100 saks credit, and 20 dollars a month for newspaper subscription / audible. And there’s also the concierge perks, status with car rental and hotels, TSA pre-check/global entry, and lounge access

This is very true. The Amex platinum is very much worth it. My issue is after confounding a business, I couldn’t justify a business platinum in addition to my personal one. So I went for business gold (where trusted associates can get free green business ones) and kept the personal platinum card.

Plat has 125-150k MR SUBs. look for it using incognito or referrals

I like my AMEX Platinum card. It's probably one of my most used cards.
