What kind of points are these and what do they transfer to? Doesn’t say anywhere. Also, where are branches in Georgia?

You can find out more about the points by clicking through the article above which discusses how much they are worth.

I have also added a link to their branch locator to the post.


For what it’s worth, I’ve (unsuccessfully) tried to get this card…more accurately to get an app – for over a year. Most recently in Nashville on business I stopped in and the branch Manager was familiar with the card but firmly stated the only places you can apply are the “full-service” locations in New York or California.

All other locations (including Nashville) are basically branches for Business Loans. I can confirm that his branch looks nothing like a traditional bank (No tellers, counters, etc just desks and clearly no efforts have been made to welcome the public).

Unless someone else can share a different experience with non-NY/CA branches I would recommend saving yourself the time, hassle, and expense of trying to reach the other branches in Nashville, Atlanta, etc.


On a related note, if some kind reader were able to get their hands on…say…more than one of those applications from the NYC or CA branches, perhaps there would be some very grateful readers who would be thrilled to have the opportunity to fill them out and mail them in?

Not sure if that’s “how it works” but it looks like the most realistic route for me at this point unless I happen to be in California (unlikely any time soon) or NYC (highly unlikely).


Hi – I live right next to one of their branches in CA. I used to live near DE and passed this bank but never thought any good of it based on their website or their offers then. They primarily cater to the Hollywood types .. so any entertainment or TV creds is the way in. I can get those applications and put them in a link. Let me ask them about the process.


Thank you so much!

I’m looking forward to hearing what you find.
