    The $349 p.a. was the catch for me. I guess the SCs are a big lure in a year where I might struggle to retain SG. 50 000 points is okay too I guess. Abu Dhabi though? I guess they picked the furthest you could fly on 50 000 points.

    Hmmm. Should I add to my four credit cards? If only for one year.

    So if you currently hold Amex but cancel it - is there a 'waiting period' before you become new does anybody know?

    From VFF. It's described as an "Exclusive Bonus Offer" so maybe it's targeted?

    edit: From the T&C - "Offer only available to new American Express Cardmembers who are the named recipient of this email"

    Velocity Amex or Amex in general?

    Sounds like a lame restriction if they are including general Amex card holders.

    This looks tempting, especially as my wife needs 160 SC by end of March to reach Platinum with only TSV - BNE return trip planned, which would qualify for the SC.

    No e-mail offer received yet.
