Wanted to seek some advice on this. I am thinking of applying for the above card, as it already come in with a Gold status for the Bonvoy program, how does acquiring nights still work if i want to achieve Bonvoy platinum status?
The same as if you had a non-Platinum card. You acquire status based upon activity, however if you fall short of attaining Gold for a year it will override the shortfall. You don't start the year at a Gold level of nights stayed, just the status. I love the card for the other perks.
You still have to earn 50 nights to achieve Platinum status, regardless of which credit card you have that gives you any level of Marriott elite status, or spend $75k a year on the Bonvoy Brilliant AMEX or Ritz-Carlton Visa for Platinum status. You can get Gold status almost as easily by holding any other Marriott card that gives you 15 elite night credits/year, and earning 10 more nights (which could be done with one Rewarding Event). Personally, I would not factor in Marriott Gold status in a decision to get the AMEX Platinum charge card; its other benefits would need to be evaluated to make a decision on getting that card.
Getting the AMEX Platinum is no value for you if you want to achieve Platinum status. If you want to do that get the Bonvoy Amex which gives you 15 nights towards platinum. However if you can afford the fee, AMEX platinum has some nice perks, but hotel loyalty status is not one of them. Gold to be blunt in worth nothing.
As suggested above, the AMEX Platinum Charge Card does nothing extra for you as far as earning within the Bonvoy program. It is a useful tool with respect to other travel-related benefits, but not for Marriott-focused spending/earning. You'll maintain Gold Status, but that's it.
I also have the AMEX Bonvoy Brilliant card that was mentioned above. If AMEX is going to be your choice, that's the card to roll with. You'll get the 15 elite night credits and 6X points on charges made at Marriott properties, in addition to other AMEX-based benefits.
