    Seeings posters everywhere for this card. Perhaps a harbinger of the end of the relationship with US?

    Initial offer is 40K "miles" with 1K spend in 90 days, double "miles" on every purchase, and a 10% rebate when redeeming. $89 fee, waived the first year.

    They also have a no annual fee card: 20,000 "miles" w/1K spend, double "miles" on travel and dining only.

    "Miles" in their parlance have a travel value of $.01, so for the full fee card it's like a 2.2% cash rebate (since you get 10% of your "miles" back when redeemed), usable on travel, redeemable as a statement credit. It also means you need over $4,450/yr in spend for the annual fee to be worthwhile.

    About half that, if you get 2.2 cents, right? Or do I need another coffee?

    No, I do. You're right. Edited above.
