Thoughts on the Corp Amex Platinum?

Best thing ever.

Yeah there’s nothing you can do about the points at D though as you’re stuck using Corp Amex.

I upgraded as the benefits made the card close to free (you get to expense TSA clear on it). Honestly the airport longe access alone is worth $400 a year if you travel full time.

like

Yeah this is true. Centurion lounges are also the best longes hands-down

It costs $395 to upgrade from our normal Corp Amex to Platinum and you get some perks but not all. The big one is that you don’t get the multiplier on travel spending so I don’t think it’s worth the fee

Agreed. Best thing if you travel often.

Benefits seem to cover the cost but points are still 1:1

I love it for Delta. Sky Club access is included and 1:1 dollar spent for sky miles.

Can someone check my math? My apartment complex allows us to pay via credit card for a $6.95 fee. If our rent is $1,910, it would make sense point-wise, to pay via Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card since the points could be valued at $28.65, assuming a 1.5% rate, right? Am I missing something?
