1. This card is good for those who don't want to think about which cards to use for different spending categories.

2. This card is good for those who spend regularly on travel.


If you want to save the trouble of thinking about which card to use, or learning how to transfer points to other partners, this is the card for you. You earn 2 points for every dollar spent. It is simple as the value of each point equal to 1 cent. The points can be redeemed toward travel related purchases that are $100 or more. Since you can get 5% back when you redeem, the actual value is more than 2 cents/dollar spent, which is slightly better than the typical 2% cashback card. However, the annual fee of $89 might be hard to justify without any retention offer. It would be worthwhile only if you spend more than $50,000 on this card per year.
