That might be true for you, but obviously for some there are cards where it makes perfect sense to pay an annual fee (e.g. BCP last year, if you know that the grocery spend is big, this was a no brainer.  For $75, I got $1200 back, or about $800 more than using another card.)

 

But as always of course before paying a fee, determine if the benefits are worthwhile to you!

Most AF's are associated with rewards and some AF's are worth it IMO

Some, but certainly not cards like CapOne platinum, no rewards, with a $19 AF, and other cards like that.
