Isn't the only difference between the Green and Zync the ability to use points for travel ??? Personally I don't care for that. 95 dollar annual fee not worth it on the Green. I pay that same annual fee on the CSP and I get more bang for my buck, IMO
Yes, that's the only difference.
In my view, the *only* reason to have the Green is for those who have tons of MR points accrued (or, need the dynamic purchasing power of an Amex charge), and need to use them for transfers. Otherwise, other charge cards are better; or, the no fee Blues for MR Express.
You're right, for $95, the CSP is a better value in every aspect, except for the unique purchasing characteristics of the Amex charge.
Right, if one didn't need to transfer miles and wanted the NPSL, Zync is a great deal. Personally, I would prefer paying the $25 fee to have NPSL than having the Blue. There are many times when NPSL is much more expedient to use than static revolving lines.
Plan on keeping mine for now. Hoping to have either freedom or SW RR to zero by May when packs are done for good for daily use. Unicorn probably won't see much action after that. It will be tough to shake the habit of using it for everything, but rewards are brutal, and most travel is done through Southwest. If anything I'll app for BCE/BCP in the near future. I plan on PIF once I slay this debt dragon anyway!
Some people here have mentioned that the Zync is eligible for a PC after 13 months
