Not if you got it for negative ~$1000 last year!

$375 although they have a promo now $75 off, they used to have a additional promo 5000 EQM"s + the $75 off could be you can still get it I think it was targeted though

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.

will spg gold by itself get you in to any lounge at the airport
SPG gold wont even get you into a lounge at a Starwood hotel
