Just got an email, no details about the card itself, just the name of it and "coming soon."

They've been talking about that for more than 6 years.
Wake me up when it launches.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Highly doubt anything real happened from that yet that you'd get an email about. Takes time for a full transfer of power
Still looking for a good MS method :)

Is the fact that they dropped Amex MR as a transfer partner mean this is more likely to be true?

Where is the info from?  I haven't seen a report!

Can you post all the details (issuer, earnings, benefits, etc.)?

Found the details, weak sauce.  The card seems super niche and uninspiring, a copycat of the Israeli Flycard Premium almost.  I would even say geared toward Israelis on relocation.  A shame.

It's way more 'generous' than the Israeli fly card.
In Israel you need to spend 190nis / $50 to earn one point, here only $13 required.

Obviously different markets etc..

Hey  - Only $200K for Gold!
It isn't even a business card, so amazing they want people with enough wealth to put Centurion-level spend on this single card....

$40 per point.  Where are you seeing $13?
