Thanks, popamode72. I knew it was supposed to be transparent, but I figured the credit card plastic would make it really cloudy. I am interested to see one in person now.
That's been my biggest concern, CarefulBuilder14. Now the trip is a little less than two years away, if that makes any difference. If nothing else, I won't have accumulated as many points - meaning if I don't get a lot of value out of them it won't be AS big of a loss. The destination is London, but I will be departing from St. Louis...not sure if that is a major city in the airport world. I've looked on the Amex travel site and while I can't see anything about MR redempion I notice you can also use them for hotels. Are you aware of how attractive this route is? (Unfortunately, I am about to lose quite a few Hilton Hhonors points due to inactivity that were accumulated during a previous job. I considered the Hilton branded Amex card, but their points have such a low value I think I'm better off just sacrificing them.)
Another aside: I don't spend as much as you on groceries (I eat out more than I should), but Walmart is my go-to for it. I'm not an enthusiastic supporter, but they are much cheaper where I live. If only Walmart could qualify for a special category.
EX - 804 (10/16) | TU - 803 (10/16)

plus several store accounts of varying usefulness now
