I would say the total lack of blue in it anywhere is the biggest difference besides the EMV chip. They simply went for a similar but slightly different look with this. It seems otherwise identical to the BCP and BSP that I had in terms of appearance. I think that makes the text stand out a bit more on this one, which is a nice thing.

yea, that's kind of what I figured, but since you said it looked better, I thought they might've done more with it hehe

I'm still on the fence on this one... whether to stick with the BCP and the no fee AE to keep my points, or just go all in with the Preferred version and drop everything else. I think I could accrue about 50k points yearly if I switch over. hmm...

My money is on him downgrading to fee free and stowing it. Why not keep it since it's backdated and free :)

If we know anything about Member by now, it's that he doesn't sock drawer cards. If he thinks it isn't worth keeping, he cancels it.

AEP and Platinum both arrived today. Two thoughts:

- Why does the AEP, a card aimed at frequent domestic use, come with a chip but I have to request it on the jet-setter-focused Platinum?

- Wow! The AEP is UGLY! Can I get a Gold card encoded with the AEP info?

It has a much higher MR point earning potential than any other card on the market right now. It's a revolver though so it will make Amex much more $$ in interest fees...

The liable shift is next year, so I guess if makes sense they start putting chips automatically on cards that arnt even going to be used abroad.

Amex Blue Cash USA
Amex US Gold Corporate Card
