Was still way worth the pull for people who were into this....

Not sure what your point is.

It was not capped, and it was the diametric opposite to "not being worth a pull."

I made more money with this card in 2-3 months than most of America makes in a year.

@mb1 - I will waste a pull on this type of card any day of the week. I will also put my earnings against the top mileage earner on DDF any day of the week.  ;)
I just found a new supply of forks!

Wasn't worth the pull because other cards were convertible to it.

Only a select few had that option.

And for people who only had charge cards? Or no cards at all? Or who were told, "not possible?"

Was still worth a pull.

Easily worth 100x the most lucrative bonus of any other card.

Easily?
Its doable, but I guarantee you not more than 5 people on here hit it nearly that hard.

And plenty more than that were able to convert.

Let's keep the talk in the present tense shall we? It's not totally dead yet!

For me I view it as a complement, rather than a substitute for points/miles.

I mentioned to a few people over the last few weeks that Amex is newly monitoring this activity, is clamping down on GC purchases, and is revamping their policies (inside info from reliable source).  I knew BC was part of it, but had no idea this was their plan. 
 
I DO believe that Amex reads these blogs and I suggest this thread be deleted and reopened with a disclaimer to be careful what is written, assuming Amex will be reading it.

Sorry,  I was referring to the part where he said "enjoy it while  it lasts"

I wonder if this is one time crackdown or if they will be monitoring this card like a hawk going forward...

If not, think like a business owner.

If you have this card and it is still working stop using it. Let this all unfold first.
