As a commuting SELRES, I’m pretty sure I’m going to get my money’s worth via just the Uber credits and not having to buy food at the airport.

That said, the Airspace Lounge food in SAN is solidly meh. The price is right, but still meh.

Shame they cracked down on buying gift cards for airfare.

Also, as a heads up, AMEX Priority Pass holders no longer get the non-club (i.e.: dining options) anymore. So, where you used to be able to splurge on $28 for you and $28 for a guest, you no longer can. (Cough, get a new priority pass with Chase).

I had a CSR and downgraded it to the Chase whatever to avoid the annual fee when I decided to stick with the Amex platinum. Without the food benefit, I lose a ton of value in the Amex Plat. I wonder if I would have to close the chase account completely and reopen one, or if they would extend those bennies to me if i upgraded it back to a CSR.....hmmmmmm

There goes my margaritas any time I fly out of Houston. The customer support for the AMEX Platinum has been absolutely fantastic so far. How does Chase compare w/ AMEX in that regard?

Not sure, I've never called Chase customer service within their credit division, outside of applying for MLA & SCRA benefits, in which case they were very helpful.

I’ve had very good experiences with the CSR folks, both in terms of troubleshooting and the travel concierge type services. From what I’ve heard, not quite as good on the latter as Amex Platinum, but no complaints at all.
