I have both Amex and venture and BY FAR VENTURE IS BETTER!! I’ve had my Amex for 2 1/2 years and paid in full each month and they will not give a credit increase. After just 6 months Venture went from 3k to 10k and I didn’t even have to ask.
My venture points picked up the slack on my last flight that was only half covered by Amex plus sent me a $100 gift card (with less points than on my other card). Amex will soon be closing before my annual fee is due. Plus EVERYONE TAKES VISA
