    I got this from AMEX a day or two ago. Seem's like Citi's HHonors Reserve card is sparking a bonus points war..

    I must have missed it. I remember them going to 10x bonus points when the Citi HHonors Reserve first came up but missed the ante being raised to 12x.

    I think you were right, Letterboy. I was thinking AMEX had raised temporarily to 10 to match Citi but your call was correct on this happening several weeks ago. Not exactly a news flash on my part..
