The Case to Apply for AmEx Platinum & Citi Prestige


Some people avoid signing up now for premium credit cards due to their benefits being centered on travel, something most of us are doing little these days. We can hope that as the year progresses travel will become something more and more feasible.

There were recent card enhancements on the AmEx Platinum card and Citi Prestige card which caught my eye from a purely cash perspective.

(Some of the above thinking could have applied in prior months as well due to the streaming credits, etc. I’m writing this simply from a forward-looking standpoint.)

A lot of people will want to go for the Platinum due to increased signup bonus + $180 in credits, and to leave the Prestige for the time being until you’d be able to make better use of the benefits.

Someone who struggles to use the $250 Prestige travel credit might want to signup for that card as well. There’s no rush on that as we now know the credit categories are expanded through December 31. So you can wait a while to see if any better signup offer comes throughout the year and apply then. The Prestige card comes with a signup bonus of 50,000 points. (Note: the Premier card has a higher bonus of 60,000 points.)

Likewise, it could be an interesting time now to upgrade your Green/Gold card to Platinum. And later this year it’s worth contemplating an upgrade on your Preferred/Premier card to Prestige.
