Wow, that's a smooth, classy looking card. I don't like the look of many cards, but that one looks great.

In regard to Amex improving, same as everyone else has said pretty much. It'd be nice if they'd pay my charges this billing period. Painful.

Indeed, its something a bit different. The Gold and Platinum are nice and are a classic but god are they boring and the numbers are almost impossible to read.

:P If they want to show really good customer service they should just give us unlimited spending and pay the bill for us haha

Although on my old royal bank of scotland card, if your balance was less than £5 they'd just wipe bill as it would be more trouble collecting it. Suffice to say the balance on the card was generally £4.50 when the statement was generated (=

No that is a sleek looking card. Looking like a wrapping for chocolate or something. I like the benefits that come with it. Curse you UK!!!

lol I wouldn't be getting too jealous. Our Platinum card works out at almost 700 dollars with no airline credit or anything like that.

Although maybe good news for you US plat holders. In the UK we've started to get x3 points on dining and x2 points on travel, maybe you'll get it at some point as well.

Maybe if the UK and US merge together it would be good. But I that's why when people complain about how much the platinum cost here I just think they need to think about how much they would be paying if they were to get it overseas. In Austrailia the platinum is $900 AUD which about $800. That is crazy.

EDIT: Researched and found the Annual fees are $900 in Italy and $1000 in Hong Kong.

This would be so great, I know the Platinum has so many other benefits than the PRG but I think they should also have the same earnings on rewards.
