USAA Master card VS. USAA American Express

I just got a USAA mastercard and was wondering what benefits the USAA master card has over the USAA American Express and vise versa. I'm going to be applying for an Auto loan with USAA next month and will try to get the American Express as well, But just was wondering what the differences were between the two cards and what benefits one has over the other...

As best as I can tell, if you have the World MC, they're pretty much the same. (A World MC has the sort of consumer protections that AmEx has classicly had.)

 

Otherwise, any benefits would be in the special deals that you might get during the first 12 months. Otherwise, my two are exactly the same, as far as I can tell.

Tsk, tsk, tsk ... HTSU, you should know better than that. 

 

The USAA AmEx is by far a prettier card!  Smiley Happy
