I am an SPG Platinum (Elite). To me, the only difference comparing to Gold is free breakfasts and lounge access for some coffee and beers. I hardly get any upgrade to suites. Maybe that's just me. I know you can get the free upgrade to Platinum Elite due to your past spend, but I would still look at the long term benefits. I don't find that much on you since you have CSR PP and AA Admiral Club, and an SPG Amex personal card, which has the same earning power as the luxury card. Cancelling the new card after 1 year cannot be that good. Just my 2 pennies' worth.
