For the month of August, I upgraded my wallet thanks to the Amex Platinum Saks Fifth Avenue $50 statement credit. I had two $50 credits since I have two Platinum cards. Learn more about the Saks credit in the video below.
Citi/AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard
The Citi AA Platinum card is a new addition to my wallet. There are a few reasons why I added it:
- Signup bonus for flights
- Start the Citi card "24-month rule" clock
- Priority boarding and free checked bag
By starting the "Citi clock" now, I'll be eligible for another Citi AA signup bonus in 2020.
Chase Sapphire Reserve
The Discover It 5% cash back category for Q3 2018 is dining. I already maximized the category with $1,500 in dining expenses, so the Chase Sapphire Reserve is back in my wallet for restaurants. The Chase Sapphire Reserve earns 3X points on dining.
Amex Hilton Ascend
The Amex Hilton Ascend is still in my wallet since my goal is to spend $15,000 to earn the free weekend night. It's my default card for non-category spend at the moment.

American Express product change and downgrade paths. Downgrading a card is ideal to keep your credit history alive since you’re not canceling the card. I usually recommend doing this after having the card for 12 months if you’re not getting positive expected value in the second year to keep a good relationship with American Express.
