我的点评

先说好的,几乎所有旅行相关的个人卡和自家的商业卡都有比较好的福利更新。实打实的超市多倍返现和流媒体手机话费报销,都是可以落到实处的。而酒店报销的改动也算是能缓解一下大家持卡的压力。作为信用卡的大户,AMEX 此举还是能挽回不少准备关卡的人的。

再说坏的

  • 最重要的航空报销到哪去了:现在报销这么困难,不如把航空杂费报销也改成吃饭算了
  • 都是联名卡的改动:Blue Cash 和 Everyday 咋办?AMEX Gold 被抛弃了么,为啥 green 有 gold 没有

另外,这么些报销怎么撸呢。。

  • 餐馆:吃的了就吃,到时候看看餐馆 GC 是否能激活吧,真不行每月买,然后到二手市场卖掉。。
  • 手机报销:可以买个手机分期付款了?或者运营商的 GC 试试?每月买个手机配件?
  • 流媒体报销:看剧?会员?Hulu 之类的 GC?

总之,随着时间的推移,应该会有不少 DP。到时候给大家一一总结。我们也会尽量从最容易套现的角度给大家测试。
