Not sure this year and beyond but he still uses it pretty regularly. Hes a self made company owner and he got it basically for the "because i can" factor and I think it gives him some pride in a weird way that he was able to build his company and can now afford this super expensive card even if the rewards are basically nill. I will admitt though ive made quite a few "hows that $1000" taste remarks go but he just laughs
Kudos to your dad for doing what makes him happy.
$1,000 is just money that a person decides what they want to spend it on.
