In this case, you picked a not-as-good offer. So yes, it would be asking for too much. But in general with amex, you are not asking for too much. I have had a bcp for the past 2 years. Interest rate 21%, when all other accounts that I have charge me anywhere from 7.1% to 15.99% max with high-reward programs.
What I have found deceptive with AMEX are their little letters sent in the mail promoting a new reward program that actually does not materialize. For instance, I received early July a letter telling me that they upgraded the bcp reward program with a 2% cashback at restaurants starting July 28. False. It never happened. My guess is that they just wanted to keep the business away from citi who truly launched a 2pts per dollar reward at restaurants with their thank you card.
In other words, AMEX are not the most fair-play in the business...
