JPMorgan cards, such as  Palladium, Ritz Carlton and Select, all have same levels of protection if I am not wrong. I don't know about the EASE of filing such claims however, but I doubt it will be too much of a hassle with JPM. 

 

Other than that Amex cards, excluding their prepaid, bluebird, serve and gift cards, also have good purchase protections. I am not sure if the coverage differs for each Amex product. Amex claims are usually the most "painless" experience though. 

 

Citi Prestige also has pretty good coverage, but there seems to be more exclusions and restrictions. Citi cards however do not cover loss. It covers only damages and theft. Amex and JPM cards however do cover customers if they lose the items.

 

JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

If I am not wrong, Select is now available only to JPMorgan customers. Used to be available to CPC clients as well in the past.

 

Chase has tightened their policies on the Palladium. You will need to be at least CPC tier or higher to qualify for the Palladium. There are also changes planned for the Palladium that is coming "soon". The exact changes have not been announced yet. 

 

The cards with better service and perks tend to have higher AFs. All these programs cost the issuer money, and the AF helps offset part, if not most, of that cost.
