For those that have legit spending or MS, then your going to Need to divide the spending amongst your spouses card as well, and if still with a short fall, just use the chase cards.
No its not the earning that's capped, it's the rebates.

Look at the bright side. Maybe the RAT will decide not to go after some criminally.

You learned the nastiness quickly enough.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Isn't this bait and switch? They got thousands of applicants to sign up expecting this benefit, and now they are pulling it so soon.

Grounds for class action?

If that was their intent then I would say you have a good case. Problem is "intent" works both ways.  ;)

I can see them allowing these benefits to continue for current cardholders, through their card member year, to avoid any suits.

Point is I paid $450 for a card with theses benefits, either refund me, or allow me to finish the year I paid for, on the term I agreed to.

+1 I don't need to have the extra point in my account before booking with CSR. This was the main reason I picked this card as a keeper over CSR...oh well
If they actually cut out the 50% back. Wouldn't we all have good reason for a refund on the $450/$550 annual fee??
