I’ve had this card for several years and it has been the easiest to use. Statements are clear and the evolving opportunities for use are a bonus.
I have never had a problem with this card. The customer service is excellent, always helpful. Representatives are friendly and never make me feel like my questions are stupid.
One of the best if not the best! With 5% all the time with the selected items, and another cash after one year, why not?
