put in extra System.out.println() statements. You will remove these later. But do things like

System.out.println("user input :" + level + ": as the level");

I put colons just before and after the variable so that i know if there are leading/trailing spaces. You can put statements like these all through your program. Usually, if it is nothing but a debug statement, I will even NOT indent them at all so they are easy to identify and remove later.

In the if statements it was looking for Platinum, not "platinum". Thanks for the help!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
