Pre-publication post. Please share your feedback, but not the link.
Reads well
I'd go with a different title.. sounds too neutral so what you rightfully call horrendous value proposition  :)

I would break down the post into categories rather than read it in one long megillah.

also the title doesn't really attract.
Maybe s/t like "Elal announces new CC, should you get it?"

LOL.
As you can tell from the URL, the original title was "Will you apply for El Al's New US Credit Card..."

But I'm still open to suggestions.

This would save you alot of "Read the post?" replies. IMHO.

The offer I received didn't waive the annual fee the first year. $99 out of pocket right from the beginning for that garbage.

I ended up pulling the trigger on this since today was the last day to apply with the targeted offer (it still isn't open to the public), and I was just curious to see how this card plays out or changes over the year that I'll have it.  I have a hunch they'll modify the earnings, maybe add KDL passes, perhaps periodic spend bonuses.  And if not, we can always part ways after the year is up :-)

For the credit profile DP: 7/24 with very high utilization (90%) on a couple of cards (taking advantage of 0%), no negatives in my report.  Approved instantly without needing to recon.

Any idea why they still haven't opened the card up to the general public?
