Signed Up for AMEX's In:NYC

POST #    1350

Over at Gothamist, we've been running a AMEX campaign for their new IN:NYC card, their new credit card targeted at spendthrift New Yorkers. The idea is that you can earn points, much like any credit card, and redeem them at local "hot spots". With some purchases, you can even earn double points, getting you that much closer to your "rewards". I'm always a sucker for new products, so once the campaign launched, I signed up.

One thing I wonder is if the rewards more valuable than the 1% I get back on my credit card? Probably not. Will I be using this card much? Probably not. Then again, I don't use my AMEX Blue card all that much either. So I guess I can cancel the Blue card. And for those that wonder why I even need an AMEX card, I have been to places that only take the American Express card. Crazy, I know.

This AMEX card differs from their original because you can carry a balance and there is no annual fee. Like I said, I'm a sucker. Only then would I get a card I don't need. On the plus side, it's interest free balance transfers until April, 2005. That and it looks cool and is much better than getting a credit card with an American flag on it.
