Yep I wanted the bonus points, and I seem to have way to many American Express branded cards, so I wanted a good Visa card other than the Chase..

Cool beans and congrats on the card! Do you like the AMEX HHonors card? I'm thinking about getting that down the road but I'm not really sure about the hotel room redemption.

Thanks! The AMEX one is great, it was my first true AMEX. You can earn extra points on gas and supermarkets as well as using at Hilton properties. The redemption is pretty good, you can choose from rooms or other gift cards or merchandise. It started out at $2k in Jan of 2011, and I've requested CLI's to $10,500 so far. Also got the APR lowered to 12.24. Very nice card.

Nice addition. That is on my list for a year from now. I just apped for the Hyatt card for 2 free nights and no foreign transaction fees/chip and sig. I spend more time in Hilton properties though. I need all these new cards to age first. Probably my next card though!
