Now here is a question for brightlybob and any other statistics persons on here. The points per spend have been reduced from 3 points per pound to 2. A 1/3 kick in the teeth for us Brits. I haven't found anything else nasty in the change yet but can anybody tell me what advantages the US Amex card card has that have not been given to us. I am certain that I read somewhere that the US card didn't charge currency exchange fees whereas the UK one does. Is this correct because I would use the card much more when travelling if this was correct and included in the New card. Answers please.
