Was I ignorant? Did they have a point? Was I just in my Amex world and should have probably considered it?
This *CHASE* employee. Chase is a different division within JPMorgan, and handles the retail side and card division. JPMorgan's card division issues (4) cards, which would blow your Gold away easily.
I would have considered it and taken them up on the Sapphire, tell them to waive your fee for a year so you can make sure you're happy first. Remember: American Express isn't everywhere.
