It used to be for JP Morgan Chase private banking clients but now anyone can apply. The annual fee is about $600 and it sounds to me as if it's intended to compete with Amex platinum. There also is a JP Morgan Select, which has an annual fee of $95. I assume this card is targeting Amex gold.
What's neat about the JP Morgan cards is now they come with the chip that allows for transactions abroad. I called and asked and the rep told me that Chase is testing out the chip in these cards and it will likely be offered in their Sapphire and Freedom cards later.
American Express: Blue Cash Preferred (groceries, 6%; gas, department store, 3%); Gold Delta SkyMiles (Delta Air Lines, 2 miles/dollar, free checked bag).

FIA Card Services: Fidelity Amex (everything, 2%); Fidelity Visa (everything, 1.5%).
Chase: Freedom (rotating, 5%); Amazon (Amazon.com, 3%); PriorityClub (IHG hotels, 5 points/dollar); Sapphire (not in use).
