Not sure if anyone else agrees... But I would imagine AMEX increases the annual fee. My opinion doesn't matter, but I could see it being along the lines of $650-$695 with added benefits and increased earnings.

I'm hoping for the double redemption like in Canada. Now I'm putting my neck out on the line that Charles Schwab and AMEX increase the MR redemption to Brokerage Accounts to 2.5% from 1.25%...

 

The AMEX Charles Schwab Platinum users can dream right?!.. My 60k points would come out to $1.5k Smiley SurprisedSmiley HappySmiley LOL

Love the Tesla Model 3 Signature Line. I have my Stealth Model 3 and love her! I'm probably going to upgrade to Model Y Performance later this year after all this settles down. Heart

We could only wish lol. Everyone would pick up a the business card that offers 2x on everything and then just transfer those points over using the Schwab Platinum for a value of 5% cash back on everything.

I have a Green Card. Saving $10/month on a phone bill doesn't make up for the loss of travel at 3x the points. I'm a single guy, so my cell phone bill isn't much ($45), but for a family of four with a monthly bill of $150, this is chump change. 

 

Perhaps they should've offered 3x on cell phone, internet provide, cable services, and streaming services instead, and/or upping restaurants and take out to 5x the points? This would've been worth changing my autopay for. I understand Amex isn't required to do anything for their customers, but a little more appreciation for those who pay an AF for a travel card but can't travel would be helpful in retaining customers.
