This might just be a rumor, but I heard that Amex is adding a new card called the Amex Aluminum.  

 

It will be made of cardboard, and cross-marketed to Bluebird and Kardashian card holders, as well as Zync members with preset limits.  The plan is to take a slice of the old Orchard Bank subprime business.  It will have a 300 dollar limit with a 79 dollar annual fee, a 20 dollar per transaction limit, and a 10 dollar transaction fee.  It will also have a 35 dollar monthly maintenance fee, a 200 dollar application fee, and 500 dollar overlimit fee.  It will have a prime plus 26 percent apr, with a penalty apr of 99.99.

 

But, it will give you a member since date.

Re: Confused over Amex Upgrades

I've had a Zync card since 2010, just called to see what I could do regarding upgrading.

 

A VERY nice CSR looked at my account and immediately offered the Gold Premier Rewards card based on my spending (~50k a year), and also offered the Platinum, but she said since it looks like I don't cover my airfare when travelling, only hotel, car, etc that it wouldn't be that great of a deal for me, and strongly suggested the Gold.

 

I agreed, she said the new card with the same number would be here next week and that I can continue using my Zync until I activate the new one. She also confirmed all of my points were convered into regular rewards points at full value (64k express points into 64k real points) and applied the Zync fees I paid back in January to the Gold $175 fee.

 

I freaking love Amex Smiley Happy
