can someone please add the AMEX everyday cards to the wiki

I don't want to mess up the wiki, can someone please add them? It seems they are both in one thread here: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=39057.0

TIA!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Moving back from Israel. Have most all basic  Chase cards + some Amex cards.

Ideally would open Southwest card but not good sign up bonus since Southwest points + companion pass would be really valuable to me.

Under 5/24. What the next best card to open?

Recently married couple have discover card.
Going to spend 10k in the next few months.
Appliance, gas, grocery, etc.
Which card should they get?
They don't have any cards other than the discover.

Hi all

I'm debating between getting the Chase United Infinite (consumer) cc versus the Chase Business Club Card. I already have the United Explorer consumer card, but I want club access for myself and my family. Anyone have any thoughts on which card you'd go for?

TIA

Well if you don't care about 5/24, then get the chase united club card. If you care about 5/24 then I would get the chase business club card.

Hi all,
I tried applying for the United quest but was told Im not eligible for a signup bonus since I got one on the United explorer card. Anyone know if this is correct? I thought a different card is not subject to the 24 month rule.

It would be helpful having the global entry benefit added to the wiki chart.


Is there a list somewhere of which cards have it?

What credit card would be best for about $150K in annual spend, could be business card or personal. I am thinking of capital one spark with 2 points per mile? Any thoughts?

Which credit card has a good signup bonus now besides Chase Ink? I live in Israel so I want one without foreign transaction fees. Looking for none or low annual fee and preferably 2% for everyday spending.

Right now freedom has 2 for 1 unlimited and combined with category bonuses could be much more

Any good cards which have cdw that someone who doesn't have any cards yet will likely get approved for as a first time card?

I like my United card.
Free bags. Decent redemption values.
CDW


It has an annual fee.

Worth trying.
In general, Chase isn't generous with approvals for no credit.
If you're not approved, try Cap1.  I think their Spark and others have CDW.

Get any Amex card and pay for premium rental insurance, only $25/rental
