Card is great. Insurance from Chubb is worthless.
American Express are great and the features of the card are fantastic. The travel insurance from Chubb is a joke though. I had to make a claim against the policy and even Amex were stunned by their Houdini-like antics to get out of their responsibility.
Benefits getting less and less....
I had this card for at least 8 years. This is used to be "the card" for me. It used to have an annual domestic return flight, now it only has $200 travel credit, with a $195 annual fee. Also, the conversion rate to airline points has been halved. The only reason I still reluctantly keep it is I'm still on the lower annual fee rate from a long time ago, plus it gives the most points from supermarket spending.

Good bonus points
Good card with bonus points but expensive annual fee. Point earn changes but relatively easy to collect these days with most merchants accepting amex. Ok benefits as well, overall not bad.
We have been Amex Platinum or Centurian card holders for over 20 years. Recently, we have had a couple of negative experiences. One was when had paid for return tickets to Europe but then changed carriers because we were able to get a substantially better price for business class fares. Chubb insurance told us that we would not be covered for insurance because we would not be using the original carrier booked from Australia. This necessitated us needing to purchase separate insurance. I do not find the prices hotels purchased through the AMEX...website to be as good as some of the other sites. The card is about to go up to $1400 per year and I am doubtful that the card is worth it. On the other hand, the points earned for hotels and restaurants are good and it is useful being able to have supplementary cards.
