A Forgotten Relative
FicoAgnostic Cardholder

With a wallet full of Visa and MasterCards, I wanted something different but, with dedicated rewards and true loyalty. I had initially thought this was a actual American Express Card; it isn't. It is a Citi Card branded as AMEX to use the American Express Payment network which gives consumers another option when Visa and Mastercard are not allowed such as Costco Wearhouse. 

The Perks are in line with the cost of the card which for me is $50 anuually.  This review is really a mute point due to the fact that this card isn't availble to new applicants. It can be requested as a companion card to the MasterCard, I believe.

The Card doesn't come with any access to American Express or its Points system; all of this is through Citi and Citi isn't a slouch when it comes to Perks, Points, Customer Service and Loyalty. Points are only tied to American Airlines Frequent flier program but these points can be used with their partner carriers. In addition to points, you do get perks such as Road Side Assistance, Car Rental Insurance, Price Rewind, Fraud Protection and others.

Overall a great card. However, like a forgotten relative, this card is rarely seen.

Good card to start out with

My parents have the platinum version of this card as well as the mastercard counterpart, and to say these are our favorite cards would be an understatment.  

I got this card to kinda get citi introduced to myself so that in a year or two i could upgrade to platinum.  This card has no annual fee which is nice, however, there aren't too many frills that come with this card.  The best feature of course is the Ameican Airlines miles. But their customer serivce rivals that of AMEX.  I was in Shanghai and someone stole my wallet they had a new card to me in a couple days.  Another time someone stole my CC numbers and charged over 4k to Louis Vuiton and they immediatly reversed the charges.  They are super plesant to deal with and they are super helpful!
