What do you want out of gold status? If it’s checked luggage, a credit card is cheaper

No. If you’re flying weekly you’ll get Gold soon enough. Even if you don’t, I wouldn’t pay for it. Also, if you’re no longer flying after 2-3 months then you won’t need status.

There’s a Platinum challenge that was like 230

You get charged for a platinum challenge? Last year around April sometime I got an email offering it for free apart from spending a boatload of money on the flights.

They just offered me free gold status through May, but I don’t fly AA.

I have ADHD and it is affecting my family life. I forget commitments I make to my wife literally SECONDS after making them, and it is so defeating to be so consistently unreliable. At work I have enough systems set up to help me keep up with my deadlines etc, but struggle to find solutions for home life. Any tips? I am not medicated yet, but am not against starting. I just don’t know if it helps throughout the day or only for a few hours. TIA 😭
