  • Save cash points cannot be 1:1 (who is dumb enough to put cash value SPG points 1:1)
  • In addition to SPG hotel in local consumption, no double points category.Consumer-save hard.

I was with this card:

1.5 years ago, just to understand the credit card, in the unknown space Forum to see a lot of people discuss this credit card.Without thinking, just go with the flow also applied for a.Later proved how correct this choice are: lines has risen to 1W, brush pressure nothing (tall).Saved points can be transferred to more than one airline to stay is a good (smart).For no reward consumption main brush daily (the Queen).Points for trip to Disney for five nights, 19k points out the value of $1000: the actual booking.

This card and AMEX Everyday as Preferred, can be used as the main consumer cards because of consumption can be equivalent to 2%+ cash back (if the hotel or go to Exchange air miles).Also, this card can be turned into AA mileage, equivalent to $1 get 1.25AA mileage, 1AA than AA and joint $1 card Citi miles better.Card's annual fee is not high, with AMEX Offer fully able to earn it back.So, I've been holding this card.
