Why BestCashCow Likes

Those who spend a lot on travel and restaurants.   Can be used as a complement to the Amex Platinum card and other Amex cards that do not deliver 3x in those categories.   May not make sense as an alternative to other cards from Chase and Citibank that deliver 3x in these categories as the travel protections are not as strong and card carries a currency conversion fee when used outside the U.S.

    This is just a terribly stupid and worthless card. Might be worthwhile if you are a flipper and want to get 30,000 Amex points for the first year annual fee, but otherwise it is a nothing of a card. The high annual fee brings no benefits. It doesn't compete with Chase Sapphire Reserve even remotely when you factor in their annual "travel" credits. It doesn't compete with Citi Preferred. It doesn't compete with Amex's own Platinum which has a larger sign up bonus and better benefits. Just a waste of space.
