P.S. Is the Costco AMEX a "real" AMEX? Will it help you build history with the company, or is it like one of those BofA-issued AMEX cards?

These points are good for all the same things as regular Amex Membership Rewards except frequent flier miles, and perhaps a few other restrictions.Blue Cash earns cash back according to the following schedule:Annual spending up to $6500:Everyday purchases: 1%All other purchases: 0.5%Annual spending $6500.01 and up:Everyday purchases: 5%All other purchases: 1.5%There is also Blue Sky, which earns points that can be redeemed at a rate of 7500 points per $100 statement credit towards eligible travel-related purchases. This represents a 1.33% rewards rate.Clear earns a straight 1% in the form of Amex gift cards.None of these cards has an AF. Clear has no fees of any kind associated with it, including BT fees, OTL fees, or late payment fees (although you shouldn't be going over the limit or paying late anyway).Clear used to be the more difficult of these cards to get, although it appears standards have loosened a bit on Clear lately. Blue is probably slightly easier to get than Blue Cash. Blue Sky is about on the same level as Blue.

Which of these if any do you have Cheddar?None, LOL.I have the Gold Delta Skymiles, and I love that card. Blue Sky is on my radar for next January (or possibly even January 2010). I figure I'll be able to get a lot of free/discounted travel with the combination of SkyMiles for airline tickets and Blue Sky for hotel and rental cars.

But you did very well with the BOA Amex......even if it did get you kicked out of the center. Oh well. How many do you have now? If you don't mind me asking?
