Has anyone else snagged this card? It seemed to appear fairly quietly but I was convinced it was a great deal and got one for myself. The 10k MR signup was, well, ok. What reeled me in was the promise of 10x on restaurants for 6 months and 2x on all "qualifying purchases" for the first year, up to $50k. Finally, there is an advertised 30% MR bonus at the end of the first year (I'm assuming this is on base spend). In my plan that is 2.3x MR for all my otherwise unbonused spend and 10.3x for restaurants (up to $2k in 6 months) - a no brainer particularly with the holidays and a long trip coming up. I'm into my second billing cycle, one statement has already cut. I received the 10k signup bonus and I'm getting 1x+9x for all restaurants (including even McDonalds), yeah! But the 2x for normal spend has yet to be seen. Does anyone have a different story? I had unseated my Freedom Unlimited card as the default spend card when there are no bonuses for this better deal. If the 2x is a myth or somehow "qualifying purchases" are defined funny (and I see nowhere in the terms where it is ... it disqualifies reloadables and traveler's checks AFAICT), I need to switch back to the Freedom card. I'll probably call AMEX for an explanation this week. Any opinions or comments in the meantime will be appreciated.
