Then, for a brief period, there was language about "qualifying" accounts, that each month, if you had one of those products, you would get 5/3/1 for that month. But then that went away, and the 3/2/1 for the card was moved to 1/1/14.
That's for the Signature of course. Then people have reported being told by CSRs:
1) Everyone with Plat Rewards will be moved to Sig version at some point
2) No, Plat Rewards users will stay with that card but get the 3/2/1 rewards. In Dec or in June (and probably other dates)
3) The Plat Rewards will go to ZERO rewards, encouraging users to switch.
No idea if any of those are true, but from the beginning of the Sig I couldn't see how the Plat Rewards could have better rewards than the flagship card, and I would expect changes to Cash Rewards too for the same reason.
I was getting good use out of this card. As a matter of fact, I have two of them. This card becomes garbage after the changes to the rewards structure and the nerfing of the points. I would use Chase and Discover for gas. I'm not sure what I would use for groceries. The card becomes less than 2% and not attractive if it goes to 321 with the current point valuations.
