I've used my World Mastercard concierge service three times (once with Citi's Thankyou Preferred, once with Ameriprise Gold, and once with Barclays Arrival), and each time I was routed to a call-center in a developing nation. Wasn't so pleased.
I've also, for poops and grins, called both my Amex Platinum concierge and the Visa Sig concierge (via my United MileagePlus Club) one after another, to ask for romantic restaurant recommendations when I was last in Honolulu, HI. I asked them to email me their results.
Both came back with respectable choices, although Amex's were not only more extensive and of a higher echelon (which is what I requested), but also had a paragraph about each restaurant describing the decor, service and style of cuisine. The Visa Sig. concierge didn't provide this info.
I've never had Discover, but in my experience, out of Amex, Visa Sig and World MC, Amex wins.
