There comes this time of the year when my AMB is up for renewal. And every year I contemplate on my own what to do. I didn't renew last year and ended up getting it anyway for a full price in points. This year I want to ask your opinion. In your mind, given the benefits that come with the status is it really worth it 19K points (24K less 5K certificate they send)? I have no chance of reaching RA, so am I better off with just Platinum that comes as a benefit of Chase CC? Thanks.
