Comments

  1. If you have an MR-based points card, can you convert the 5% into 5x points (Similar to how you can do with URP if you have a Freedom card and a premium Chase card), or is it ONLY % cash back? I value points more than cash back.

  2. Great Info . Thanks.

    One Question: How to tell the difference between credit cards and charge cards?
    Does an application when opening a card indicate which it is.. or….?

    • I believe that every Amex credit card has the words “credit card” in it’s official name. Cards without those words are charge cards. The main rewards charge cards are: all varieties of Platinum cards (except the Delta Platinum credit card), Premier Rewards Gold, and Business Gold Rewards
