    Any information?

    Are you close but shy of renewing?
    Is it a good financial move based on your upcoming travel?
    What is your 2014 planned travel?
    How much do you value the perks?

    Considering a RT TATL to LHR costs about the same as the renewal rate at times and only gains 10K in EQMs, if you're more than 10K EQMs away it's a good deal. If your upcoming travel in 2014 is significant, PLT gives 100% bonus whereas Gold only gives 25%. Are you looking to build up miles for award travel?

    how many threads are you posting this too. In addition, you may want to give a bit more information on your situation, travel patterns, travel budget, preferred carrier, etc.

    Help us help you by providing as much information as possible.

    And the answer is: this really depends.

    Status buy back used to be in 600-700 range, but then many things in life used to be cheaper. :) Back to the topic, instead of just paying 1200 I'd rather do a few international trips/MRs, thus gaining travel experiences and RDMs too, but that's a matter of taste.
