AMEX Zync - any new info?

Has anyone heard any new information about AMEX's plans for the ZYNC?  I would like to know what they are going to do to current NPSL card holders.  So far not really heard too much about it.

I dont want it PC'd.  I want to be able to use it and get another charge charge that I can link it to.  $25 a year in AF is a great deal for a card that is backdated to 1993 and looks better than most of the other AMEX cards.

Re: AMEX Zync - any new info?

Nothing official yet; however, one Zync PSL holder this morning stated they were able to be approved for a Green so perhaps things are progressing.  Like you I think I may keep this card until they tell me I can't have it anymore as I find charge cards to be very useful in some situations and I'm guessing I'm not travelling substantially for several more years now.

Re: AMEX Zync - any new info?

oh yes i agree but with the 500 limit its kind of limiting for me. 

obviously i spread my charges across a couple cards but it is what it is. 

right now im content. 

when i buy a condo(in the next few years)  a 500 limit might not be good for me... 

 

but in all honesty im not looking for any other charge cards. 

its true earnings and bce/bcp for me. 

 

speaking of which are zync points not being used anymore? 

i had like 400 something pending and they havent shown up?

I think you still earn them.  I need to check.  Ive had my first statement generate and its due on the 26th this month (please pay by date).  I had over 1k charged to card and so far no points showing up yet either.

Re: AMEX Zync - any new info?

Can't go wrong with a $25 AF. Although the perks on the Zync are gone. It would be tough for me to take a PC to the 'Green' since the AF is higher; unless they PC me to the green with the same AF which I doubt that they will.

 

Who knows maybe I could PC to the SPG (one can dream) Smiley Happy
