    Is it better to book a room using Fine Hotels and Resorts through the Platinum Card, or book through mLife? It seems like the FHR perks are better.

    If you might get your room comped you must book through the hotel. If not book through amex.

    Depends.. As mentioned if you book fhr you can't get your room comped on the back end. I've received a lot of value booking suites at Wynn with fhr. A lot of time it comes down to will your play cover your room and f&b spending? If so I'd pass on fhr. If not it certainly is worth a look.

    When I got one platinum card, I cancelled the other. Lol.

    I found MLife's discount and flexibility, especially as a Platinum, far more useful at MGM properties than Amex Platinum's.

    If you book through AmEx FHR, you will not get your first night comped off (since it's paid as a deposit) but you can get the rest of your nights and food/beverage comped off if your play warrants it.

    I have used FHR to book into some of the suites at the Bellagio, the rates can be very competitive, and benefits (free breakfast, property dining credit, late check out, etc) may provide more value than a casino booked room/suite.
