I want this card. Maybe I'll apply for it next year, since I got 4 new cards already in the past 2 months.

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred

Question - my existing Zync points should convert over to to MR First points correct?

There are a lot of them, read the fine print carefully. You can register your card to your checking account and use it as an ATM card with a $20k a day limit. Comes in handy if you are in Vegas.

Yes, there are fees. I believe it is 5%. My ATM card does not allow such high limits to be taken out daily. In fact, they are very low.

How does this work? Is there a link you can post about this from the Amex site?

There is no link, there is nothing on the American Express website. It is written in the T&C's when you get your card. That is the only place I found out about it, and then I called the number on the back of my card to register my primary checking account. It's not something I use all the time, but it's a lot safer to not carry a debit card.

Got the card today and activated.

Kind of stinks there's no RFID / tap to pay on the card like there is the Zync, but it's still a nice looking card, and I look forward to using the perks and benefits soon!
