  1. My understanding is that if you got the card before the change, one is grandfathered in, and you get the yearly companion ticket without having to do the additional spin. That is why it’s beneficial to those elders to hold onto the card, even though it did increase slightly the annual fee. Can the experts chime in on here and give us clear guidance. I’d really be helpful. I have the old card and it. My understanding is incorrect. I will definitely close it once the annual fee hits.

  2. I read the comment Alex brought up. He’s church the mom states that.., I’d this a new change? I have the card seems that after the guest that it be best to close the card. That much spend on it is not worth it..
    can you give us your input with the new $6,000k annual spend if it still makes sense to have the card plus the increase fee…
