The benefits of this card is that all consumption 2% cash back, if you consume relatively large amounts, without belonging to certain categories of reward credit cards (such as supermarkets, fuel, travel), then use the card or return ratio ordinary 1% cash back credit card twice of. Redeem this card it is also quite easy to save more than 10,000, a one-time ticket exchange swap on the line.
However, I personally feel that this card is just a piece of card holders a year. No annual fee the first year, $ 500 was very good. But the second year to pay $ 89 annual fee just for 2% of the return is not worth existing points, cash back in order to cut costs last year more than 1% cash back credit card, then, need to consume $ 9800 more than the job. So, you can choose to apply for this white card to get $ 500, after a year in the past, first of all try to call there is no Retention Offer (usually no annual fee); If you did not want to, you can choose to switch to a no annual fee version arrival on the line.
