I got it, too, and it is saying $79 AF
That being said, it does, in fact, seem to have a number of benefits. 5% cash back on all US hotel rooms, airline tickets, car rentals, cruises. I mean, i could do business purchasing with this card, get reimbursed, and take 5% of all my flights. that right there would give me the $79 plus more back.
Is there something I'm not looking at correctly here? Can I call and find out if there's an option for a lower annual fee? what am I not considering?
