Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

There will probably be a 1-2 phase out of the zync and PC existing cardholders to the Green or any other card that they might replace the Zync with.

 

The thing about PC'ing is that no other of their charge cards have like a $500 cap then NPSL after a while. I don't think even the green gives you a cap if you're barely approved.

Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

Yeah but some people want a amex charge because its NPSL. I personally have the green and goldpr just because i want them. Im nowhere close to a big spender on those cards but i just wanna have them. I wont mind paying $270 a year on af on the cards, its 22.50 a month. I waste way more buying coronas on weekends when i go out.

Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

Im hoping they'll have something new, as I'd like a charge card but I dont think I could justify 95$ for a green. I'd rather get a CSP or something since I bank with chase, it would probably be a better idea for me. I liked the odea pf an amex charge with an AF reasonable for everyone, but then again, amex isn't supposed to be for "everyone."

Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

I really hate charge cards...I like the option of carrying a balance if I had to. Maybe Amex will be doing away with their charge cards?

Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

I doubt it maiden. Their charge cards are iconic, plus some people like the idea of a charge card. It keeps them from spending money they don't have.

Also it is possible to revolve a balance with an amex charge.

Re: What is alternate option to Zync now?

The crazy part is that we know one could never PC to a higher tier charge card. You would have to re-apply for a better charge. That what intrigues me as to what they are going to do with the existing Zync holders.
