I received the same e-mail. I didn't realize you have to actually sign up. I thought it was automatic enrollment for charge card customers.

From my understanding you have to enroll unless you're a new member as of April 1st?

 

I'm not too sure, better safe than sorry I guess.

It only counts on Personal Cards, I was hoping my business card would qualify.

Not necessarily -- I got an e-mail today for this, and I opened my card in March 08. The fun thing is, I canceled my Gold card several weeks ago, and I now just have a Blue.

What's especially fun is that they still seem to have me enrolled in the full membership rewards program. Go figure... :smileyindifferent:

Yeah sucks for those of us with an AMEX credit card.  It almost makes me want to switch.  :smileytongue:
