joearg29's review: Callout Comment Thinking about closing this card soon, and downgrading to Green card, basically same rewards, and a waste of 450 that AMEX will not waive. Internal CL is unpredictable PMS like... Oh well Dont app

Remarks I used to have this card. It worked for me because of the amount of travel that I did, so the perks were great. If you don't travel a lot then I don't recommend this card

Remarks I travel extensively, they have done away with companion first class, the lounges are now limited to certain airports, I didn't have access in Frankfurt, Germany. Also no longer signature rewards offered, with Saks First, and Apple. This card is not special anymore. Cancelling soon

Remarks Acquired this card when it was by invitation only. Felt great but over time it just didn't warrant the annual fee. Now I had a real American Express Platinum Optima Card with $20K limit and I did like it with a great interest rate and reasonable AF (sorry they went away).
