well tecboy, american express is so full of themselves, they think their cards are so great. I wonder if they ever stopped and thought of this.
they were once the number 1 credit card for travel. years later Visa and mastercard caught up with them. we both have the green card, the green card is used for both business travel and personal spending. wouldn't it be nice since we're both paying 95.00 a year that we could get some help making dining reservations? I'm not saying chilis but a local restaurant?
What American express wants you to use is their purchase protection. if you go to Pottery Barn and you were to break dishes by accident, you are covered up to 1,000 dollars. if it's 284.00 you are covered. another thing they would like you to use is car rental service. if your traveling to a big city like Chicago, when you get out into O'Hare just take a hotel bus to your hotel, the rest of the time you are in the city, just walk from places of business or take cabs. this goes for Boston, LA, New York. if you are going to the boon docks ask if your client can drive you around.
if you are 50 miles away and you are having car problems, you can call them. there's some sort of fee, that's what they want you to do. I'm not saying we should have airport access to lounges like the Delta crown room, I'm not saying we should get a concierge.
which would you rather have help making dinner reservations or purchase protection, car rental, 24 hour road side?
with my capitol1 I get a concierge service, help making travel arrangements, tickets to sporting events, and finding gift ideas.
we don't get a year end summary but you know what my annual fee is 0. american express is 95 for our green and 125 for the gold.
