Anthony Venture's Take
On top of the hotel and airline credits, the one benefit that sticks out to me the most is getting 35% BACK in the form of Amex Points on the qualifying airline of your choosing, and of course, First & Business Class flights booked on the American Express Travel Portal. If you are a high flying... Flyer, this may just be the card for you.
