Yup, in complete agreement. Besides the higher interest rate than offered elsewhere, it would seem that, using this feature, one would be drawing unnecessary attention to one's transactions. AMEX keeps a tight rein on their "regular" accounts, having this added feature, while nice, should be a bit of a warning to use it very judiciously. I have it on my Gold card, have never used it. IIRC, this used to be the old "sign and travel" feature from AMEX on the chargers, carrying a travel balance. I remember at that time, they really, really didn't like it if that balance went to 6 months or more. No reason to believe that anything has changed.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!
