.. I urge you to check it out. I am "paying" 5,800 *Points a night to stay at the Le Meridian Khao Lak in Thailand later this year. Plus the 5K bonus on 20K airline transfers that many programs offer is fabulous.
This is my primary card, I love it and don't mind paying the annual fee one bit.
So I'm not super familiar with the card but the points are worth about 2.2 cpm? I know everyone has their own valuation but around there?
So with the 5k per 20k transfer bonus... say I put 10k spend....5k in first 6 months (gets me the 30k bonus), another 5k somewhere in the next 6 months (10k points in spending) before the fee...that would get me to (30k sign up plus 10k in spend, makes 40k add in 2x5K transfer bonus) 50k points? Which would be worth $1100?
Not sure I have interest keeping it for longer then a year but if that's true this maybe my next card.
Another question is those twitter/four square promotions that amex has been running a lot lately this card I assume qualifies right? Those have been some nice added bonuses.
"to register the card on americanexpress.com under card management, and in the search box on the top right enter “refer a friend”. Then recommend the card to your spouse or partner for the same offer through the appropriate link. All you need is their name and email; they have to apply through the link that is emailed to them. Assuming approval you will be given 5,000 extra Starpoints for your trouble. This is done automatically, right into your account."
