Actually, the best go to Discover and AMEX according to J.D. Power.

Chase is not as great as you think.

The reality is banks want your money. They don't give a [thing] about customers.

As you are forced to play the game, the only thing you can do is to get leverage with the banks.

I read the latest 10K per your advice. It turns to be the credit card business was significant to JPM, which contribute almost 10% of its noninterest revenue in 2016 (more than 10% in 2014 and 2015). On the other hand, JPM made less money from mortgage.

I'm thinking they will either increase the CSR's annual fee or reduce the travel credit to put greater distance between the cost of holding a CSP ($95) and a CSR ($450-300=150). I predict the rumors will start in November.
As soon as the revenue generated from CSP and/or CSR is sufficient, the cut may not happen at all.
