I kind of don't understand why this is a desireable feature for cards other than Cent/Platinum, because every other AmEx I'm aware of charges FTFs. I have only used EMV overseas on my Platinum, but even if I didn't have that card, I'd still use my CSP or something else with no FTFs, EMV chip or not.

Never hurts to have a backup. Don't assume your preferences to be universal no matter what the topic.
