LOL.

I'm with djrez - if the Platinum (current favorite) and the PRG could be combined, I'd lose all the other cards and concentrate everything onto that bit of plastic.

It's just a card. After the first few times of using it, it becomes just like the others in Amex's line up. Don't get me wrong, I love the card but just saying......it's not the same as doing a hot model ;)

That Unicorn of a card...Zync...for very superficial reasons. It's the best looking card AMEX ever offered...and now it's very rare!
