This card is not for frugal people who are willing to spend hours doing research about how to maximize the value of points/miles. This card is designed for rich people who value their time and prefer simple rewards. Similar premium credit cards, such as Chase Sapphire Reserve (CSR), AmEx Platinum, Citi Prestige, and Chase Ritz-Carlton, are more suitable for people who travel a lot and are willing to spend time on the points/miles stuff. Instead, this card offers a simple rewards structure: 2% return on every spend (if you use the points for airfare), so you don’t need to think about anything and you can earn the rewards you deserve.
Comparing this card with the no annual fee 2% cashback card like Citi Double Cash, it has a big annual fee. But since this is a premium credit cards, you get better service, larger credit limit, and a heavier shinny card.
If you are a military member on active duty, you are lucky: Barclaycard waives the annual fee for you.
