I have the Green card, My annual fee is coming up in October. I have no problems with annual fees if we're going to get something out of it.
today I called to see if they have any useful benefits. I know they have benefits but I was looking for useful benefits.
This is what American express has: purchase protection on breakable objects like at JCPenney home store, Pottery Barn up to 1,000, rental car insurance, lost or damaged luggage, help for lost or stolen passports, emergency medical advice.
Even before I got my American express green card none of these things ever happened. However the account mgrs can't help us with something useful like dinning reservations. some thing that's useful we can't get I wonder why?
I'm looking for card that looks like executives would carry. I don't travel on business so forget about the Starwood Preferred Guest card, no Deltas, basic, gold, platinum or Medalion qualifying miles card. forget about the Jet blue, Hilton. These cards are for people who travel on business like my accountant.
I have been offered the aqua card about 5 times I have said no to this card. I will never say yes please don't suggest this card. the Blue cash rewards card is more of a card like the Discover card, it's more for shopping. I've seen a lot of people use this card, to me it's not a card that a salesperson from Federal Express would have, Minolta or IBM. I don't even think of all the cardholders that have Blue cash, nobody has their bill sent to the office. they have it sent to there home.
the clear card too is also a shopping card, it's their lowest level card. this is not a card for me. I'm looking for a card like Chase Sapphire or capitol 1 gold card, business-like. salespeople carry these cards and so do vice presidents of companies. some thing that would represent me would be an American express type business looking card. If the card has an annual fee I would like something that gets our use out of it and doesn't cost a lot, the platinum is to expensive. the Gold, with me already having a Discover and a Capitol 1 gold, there's no reason to have a gold with a year end summary .
anybody have ideas?
