I perfectly agree.

Please note that further posts on this thread about the costco amex, whether the card will cease to exist and whether amex will force the cardholder to reapply for another card will not allowed. they have NOTHING to do with this thread. Further posts on that will be deleted and the poster may get an infraction. Thank you.

So, what other NO-FEE cards are out there that offer 1% or more, and offers Buyers assurance (extended warranties) AND car rental insurance (so you can decline LDW), like this new Amex card? Sure, it'd be nice if the piddly 1.25% was higher, like the 2% RWE (but, let's not mention this card since it's no longer available to new applicants).
When did they get rid of it? I can still see it on their site.

Actually I disagree that it has nothing to do with the thread, but you are the mod.

So this card won't have any bonus sign ups?

Just applied, conditionally approved.
Wait to verify my information since I have a anti-fraud flag in my credit file.

The card has its weaknesses, but i wouldnt go as far to say that it's completely useless. I actually will probably go for the free one for the 5% in the first 6 months ($5000 spending on GC? OH YEAH).

And thread title is updated.
After the 5% promo period, this card is absolutely useless. Compare this card to the CapOne Aspire Travel with their annual fee of $120 and 10K in annual bonus with a very good comprehensive travel insurance plus price protection. The Aspire is not only 2% cashback for travel rewards (cumbersome) but also with a straight 1.5% cashback option. Not to forget a $350 sign up bonus and better acceptance.

Not everyone makes enough to be eligible for World cards though.
