Probably never? There's no date on that blog entry that I could see. However, according to another URL, it's the Everyday Card. Perhaps AMEX changed it up between that blog entry and the actual release of the card. Here's the other URL: http://www.credit-land.com/news/american-express-offers-20-reward-point-bonus-on-new-card-2534.html
This article is dated March 26, 2014. Somewhere along the line, something apparently changed. Unless......
Could AMEX be planning an additional release of an upscale Everyday card? According to the 1st article, the 20% AMEX card was only going to be offered to folks with a credit score of 830 or higher, which seems to me to be even more exclusive than the Centurion. There's no indicated spend requirement, but a noted limit on the amount that the 20% would be available on -- up to $20K in purchases, at which point it drops to 1%.
Maybe Travis with AMEX can weigh in here on what happened/will happen?
