I sincerely wish it were worth $50k but each reward point is worth roughly 1 cent (at it's typical best). Although to your point you'd normally have to spend $50k to get 50k reward points so it's really a great incentive to sign up. I consider it a no brainer if you travel a lot and don't mind applying for a card.

One caveat (coming from a devoted Amex Plat. guy) is that if you fly United, you might want to consider Carte Blanche instead. Amex and United/Continental have a bad relationship.

Just applied for the Platinum (I have been on a SPG for a few years). The 50K Miles and Lounge access were a Bonus. IMHO the lounge access helps offset the annual fee.
I do not always fly up front. I thought access was only US Airports - does it include International?

Includes Delta & AA which I fly. Others are included as well but I forget which. You can sign up for Priority Pass to access international partner lounges but since I've also not used those I can't recall details. Definitely worth the price if you intended to pay for lounge access anyways.

Thanks

The amex android app is pretty handy

I don't think visa/mc do this...you have to hope and pray that the issuing bank doesn't have a completely fucked up view of mobile devices.
