So it sounds like you are all saying SPG is the answer for me.

The Citi Plat. Amex looks nice, but are you saying its better than the PPE for me because I won't be earning points from flying? I already have the Ameriprise World Elite MC for unlimited Priority Pass lounge access. What is the main reason why the Citi Plat. Amex is such a great card? The thread for that card is very long and convoluted. Would there be another benefit to getting the Citi Plat. Amex over the SPG? Especially if I already have a Priority Pass membership from my other card?

As things are starting to come together I think I'll go with the SPG Amex for all use, and then use my AA MC for the rare times when Amex isn't accepted. And keep my Ameriprise World Elite MC for the Priority Pass and the 2% Forex fees for international travel.

Last question. SPG regular vs. Business card. I read in other threads, you don't need to have a business. The annual fee is the same and you get the Amex One merchant discounts. Are there reasons why I should not apply for the SPG Business Amex?
