    Exactly, it's probably standard practice for white folks up on financials. There were a handful of white girls talmbout their credit card when I was in high school, and I know them bytches didn't apply on their own.

    already got a Plat so that's not an issue.

    But yeah, might just go ahead and get a gold for him, excuse me but in his name, and do a couple of things with it.

    When I started working at a credit union, I learned a lot of basic shyt from them white folks and how they manage their money. That’s how I switched all my spending to my credit cards and set up multiple savings accounts to split my paycheck

    Oh gotcha. That's what I meant.

    I can get him a gold for free with no annual fee.

    This plat annual fee though :damn:

    And they make you pay it UP FRONT. :dead:

    shyt caught me off guard like a mufukka.

    I’m still trying to learn the perks of the plat reading everyone’s experience because I’m not sold on it just yet for that annual fee. shyt, I’m still learning this gold out too. Next year I will make that change. I know I do travel a lot though. But don’t see myself chilling in any lounges at the airport unless I’m on a long ass layover which more than likely take a Uber depending on the city and look around.

    if your averaging 4 round trips per year (thats 8 flights) for me, with the value I place on the platinum card perks its defiantly worth it.

    lounge access (especially if your home airport has a centurion lounge) is worth it alone to me. A decent meal, drinks, comfortable spot to relax.

    + CLEAR, global entry/ pre check, Plus status at Hilton/Marriot. I look at the platinum card as an inexpensive way to have an overall much better travel experience year round. thats why I have it. The uber credits, airline credit and several other things are icing on the cake helping me get more out of the annual fee.

    You buy all your airline tickets from the Amex portal? I’m gonna make the plat move…. Do I have to start my spending cost all over as well or it starts me off automatically at a higher value than my gold?

    Some of them directly through delta, some through Amex. Depends on if I’m using points, miles. Either way you get 5x points on flight purchases with platinum
