I got it earlier this year @ $3k. I like it mostly for the 5% categories. I'm not going to switch my banking to Chase, so the "trifecta" bonus doesn't apply to me. This last quarter, I've used it at restaurants @ 5%.
Their CS is pretty good, though I've gotten some inaccurate info from some of the reps. I think that's par for the course w/CS anywhere these days.
I'm hoping for a nice CLI and possibly upgrade to the Visa Sig on my anniversary!
Congrats on the approval! I also don't have the checking combo with it but it's been my everyday card for almost a year and I think it's great.
