Also, 1.25c redemption for plane tickets go away via the Citi portal

Unclear how this impacts rideshare, Amtrak, OTAs and other categories

Also a $100 credit for hotel bookings over $500

Pluses and minuses to this change
One note since I wasn't sure reading your post: 3x on gas stays according to OMAAT. I think these changes are overall a huge plus for me. I use my Premier often already, but it would become my go-to card for everything: eating out, groceries, travel and gas.

I'd probably keep my Amex Platinum for the benefits, and maybe hold onto my Amex Blue Cash Preferred. Otherwise, all my annual fee cards would be expendable.
