Best Amex Revolver, but...

I wonder what everyone's thoughts are on this, but excluding the Blue Cash Everyday/Preferred.








In my wallet: Amex Platinum NPSL, Amex Everyday Preferred $15,000, Amex Starwood $10,000, Chase Freedom Visa Signature $10,000, Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa Signature $15,000, Chase Ink Plus Visa Signature $5000 Barclaycard Arrival Plus MasterCard World Elite $10,000, Cap One Quicksilver MasterCard $6000, Citi Prestige World Elite MasterCard $10,000, Citi Forward Visa $6900, Citi Premier World Elite MasterCard $5,800, Discover IT $8500

Re: Best Amex Revolver, but...

If you can spend 20k or more a year it's the SPG (thats what it takes to get one free domestic round trip ticket).

 

if you spend less than that but want to be able to BOGO economy tickets once a year on Delta, Delta Platinum wins!

Which revolver is best could be debated forever....it really depends what your priority is.

Re: Best Amex Revolver, but...

Oh yeah, I know it'll depend on the use case per person, just curious on everyone's perspective. I had the Blue Cash but it seemed unnecessary to me once my girlfriend acquired the Blue Cash Preferred. I switched it to the Blue Sky, yet wondering about my options for later on.

Re: Best Amex Revolver, but...

I think it's all subjective for me the best revolver is the Delta Amex this is down to the pay with miles feature on Delta.com
I fly a lot ( I'm platinum with delta so I get double miles) I just flew to brazil last week using the pay with miles feature I will get $200 off my next flight

I guess the best way to look at it is to find a card with rewards that you will use! The delta amex perks are useless to people who don't fly delta!
