I completely agree and yesterday I called to canx mine but was persuaded to keep it for one more year...My AF has been grandfathered to $50 for several years now. When years ago they raised it to $75 I successfully protested. On top of that, I have managed to get a $25 credit and 1000 bonus miles by calling each year. Now the card is certainly worth $25 a year, especially since we were flying inter-island multiple times a year.
Yesterday i called an indicated that even though my AF was only $50 this year I didn't feel it was competitive in it's offerings so I'd rather just close it. I was immediately transferred and the CSR offered to waive my entire AF and offer me a spending bonus. If I spend $1k in the next 90 days, I get 5k Hawaiian Miles. The spend will be no problem, in fact I will probably have met it by the end of the week.
I still feel the card is junk overall but for free and a spend bonus I will happily keep it for another year. It's also my second oldest account so I hate to close it...
