Amex limits you to four personal revolving credit cards.  Charge cards and biz cards are not counted.

Good to know, but what I still do not understand, how one could need more then one charge card? Okay maybe two. But I love my Zync and the only addition for me would be a Plat (for I travel a lot internationally and could make great use of the rewards). Gold and Green have no value for me in rewards compared to the great credit cards out there.

I imagine some people have the prg to accrue mr points faster (3x airfare, 2x gas and groceries) and the plat for travel benefits. If you have either a plat or a prg, then both the green and gold seem kind of redundant to me.

 

I could also see another scenario where someone might have a zync (which accrues mre points) and another charge card so that the mre points earned on the zync could be converted to mr points

Platinum for the airport and PRG for the points as you said. The green I'm just going to use for reporting I guess :smileyhappy:
