The 80k CSP AND 150k Amex Plat if you qualify.

It depends on what you're looking for.

United Explorer, AA or Delta Gold are just for relatively easily achievable and sizable sign up bonus (churnable too).

For lounge access, go with Amex Plat or Venture X. Or Delta Reserve if you fly Delta a lot, plus you get free bags and complimentary upgrades (lowest priority).

For flexibility, eg partner transfers, 1.5x etc, go with Amex (Biz) Plat or CSR.

For daily uses, Amex Gold or CSP
