Thanks for the link Levi, 375$, meh. If I cancel before the year is over, is the fee prorated?

Nice, I think I am going to go for it. It's basically the same as the amex plat, right?

Yitzer, I'm confused. Going through the board I see like 5 CC already that your getting...
You do know that you can't get everything at once, right?

Incorrect.

The AMEX plat will get you into AA/CO/DL/NW clubs if you are traveling with that airline that day.

The CO Pres Plus is a full CO PC membership, so it will get you into any CO/NW club regardless if you are flying that day (free airport security pass), and into DL if you are flying any Skyteam airline that day.

i stand corrected however i can only speak for myself when i say that its not worth it for me to start changing terminals before a flight when im not flying continental (i usually fly from big airports) and i usually fly aa  so for ME and people like me, amex plat is far superior

No argument-For most people AMEX Plat is superior, especially because of the many benefits that come with it such as SPG Gold and lost item protection.

But the CO pres plus card has its merits, including elite access, Avis pres club, and the ability to access overseas partner lounges such as in TLV that AMEX Plat won't cover.

I might want to do it. How much is it to split it with you? Will it get me SPG Gold if I'm a second user?

Hello People, Let's make something clear here for the 1,000,000th time.
If your doing this for SPG Gold, Don't Bother! SPG Gold is pretty useless & available for free just for asking.

Only reason I asked was because Dan said-
"No argument-For most people AMEX Plat is superior, especially because of the many benefits that come with it such as SPG Gold and lost item protection."

So I figured it wasn't as easy as a simple phonecall.
