Is this Citi AAdvantage Gold upgrade to Platinum Select offer worth it?

I've received an offer to upgrade my Citi AAdvantage Gold card to Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard.

Aside from earning double miles on purchases, I don't see much more benefit from the new card.

I can already get preferred boarding, free checked baggage with my Gold status, and I can get no foreign transaction fees on my other cards.

The annual fee will go up to $95.

The ONLY bonus they'll give is 2 Admirals Club One-Day Passes AFTER I spend $1k within first 3 months.

I'm thinking this offer is not worth it. Am I missing anything?

Does anyone think otherwise?

I wouldn't do it. Two Admiral's Club passes for $95 and spending $1000? No thanks.
