Except the article is completely wrong about the features of the card. It didn't even get the annual fee correct.

It said last updated 1/4/2013, in any case this card is trying to compete with Amex Platinum. I think the Amex Platinum is a better value.

I agree DavidNY, Platinum wins in my book hands down, but the prestige is ok, just not worth the AF in my opinion.
Wallet: Amex BCE & Chase Freedom. (Credit Card dieting since 2014)

Same: AMEX Platinum is still the one to beat. It's nice, though, to see Citi improving on an existing product that frankly was lackluster.

Like everyone is saying, it doesnt live up to the Amex Plat, but its close. I do like the economy-class companion ticket every year. :)
