Gold was a huge upgrade for me. I did the trial this spring and when I was silver I got no upgrades. The first flight I took as gold (PHL-SFO) I was upgraded to First and a majority of my flights from that point forward were upgraded as well. Also, star gold makes a big difference when flying on partner airlines. Go for the Gold!
