14. Any status is better than none...


Although gold wonít get you many upgrades to first. There are a lot of gold status folks. It will help you some in the event of a hiccup during a trip. If thereís one seat left and the other passenger has no status, you win! Also, with gold, you get to board in an earlier group, and you get a free checked bag.

I fly only American Airlines, so thatís the only one Iím familiar with. Iím a fan of the AA Elite Mastercard. Although, it costs $400 a year, it gives you access to the Admirals Club, two free checked bags, group four boarding, and other benefits. Having access to the Admirals Club is worth it. You can get away from the masses, get free Wi-Fi, plenty of phone charging, snacks, free alcohol, and much shorter lines to a customer service agent. And you can get all that even if you have no status.
