Went to this great restaurant on the water around Puget Sound a few years ago. I remember we drove off of the main road and it was a small two lane road on a hell of an incline to get there. It was pretty nice and had great seafood. The view was awesome and they had an outside area/deck but it wa...

I got a Gold late last year but have been thinking I wanted the Platinum instead for the travel benefits (I weighed the $450 fee to the benefits and figured I'd give it a try). Well, I applied thinking it would instantly replace my Gold. Wrong. Not sure why I thought that, but now I have both.
