Every post you submit has something negative how you hate cards with fees. Fine. Great. Get over it. And remove the prestige cards from your signature. If the account is closed who are you trying to impress? You shop at Walmart, I shop at Neiman Marcus. Obviously, there is a huge difference in who has the money to spend. An annual fee of $450, is merely one night in a first class hotel. Again, you stay at the Best Western, I stay at the Ritz Carlton. Annual fees are also designed to keep the rift raft out.

Frankly, your ignorant, uneducated comments are not welcome here. There are hundreds, if not thousands of members who DO value the opinions of those who carry the card they wish they too could have.
Again...if you were able to break out of your illustrious shell and pay attention you'd have seen the numerous comments I made stating that the platinum could be worth it for frequent travelers. And I don't care about people who seek out the cards simply for the status. I'm targeting those that want value. And you need to learn that when someone doesn't agree with you that doesn't make them ignorant and uneducated. In fact, I cancelled my PR Gold Card because I educated myself on its value and saw none as a result. Go figure.
This particular forum has alliances with American Express and really doesn't appreciate your negative, comments with one of their partners. I am sure that Mike, the owner will agree with me on that.
Pathetic. Is that the best you can come up with? You do realize that there are thousands of forums out there discussing a wide range companies and their products and there are very few (if any) where each and every person likes each and every product being discussed? But guess what!....That doesn't mean that they don't like the company!
People dream for the day that they hold and own an American Express Charge card. I don't think that your abusive, negative energy should detract from that dream. Go push your negativity somewhere else.
Abusive? Wasn't it you that turned this into a personal attack whith your lame comments about shopping choices and hotel choices? Yes I believe it was. And here's a little life lesson for you.....people aren't always going to agree with you and they aren't evil for it! If you can't refute what I, or any one else in the future, say about annual fees without making personal attacks or trying to intimidate them like you just did to me (horribly pathetic) then maybe you should take a breath, relax, think, and maybe you'll realize that maybe you are wrong.
