I guess because they figure if you're shopping at those stores, you don't care about rewards or cash back.

Hmm. I would think that it would be a way to set a card apart from others.

ShopDiscover has Neiman's and Nordstrom at which you can buy the above named brands (and others). Also, AMEX has an affiliation with Gilt.com where you csan shop designer brands at a discount. It's not too extensive a site, but I've gotten some real bargains. HTH.

+1. This is exactly it. This is the same reason why many luxury hotel chains typically don't have a rewards program either. They expect you to come back based simply on the quality of the experience provided. Ritz-Carlton is an exception to this, since it's owned by Marriott and runs a version of their rewards program.

Even wealthy people like cash back too! In fact, wealthier people use credit more than the avg American as a "financial too"! Lol
