If you go to the website, you can apply for the gold card, get 20,000 miles and it only costs you 60 bucks!!!

One of the worst credit cards offer I've ever seen.
Large annual fee (no big problem)
16.74% apr thats high, but more importantly look at the late fees 39 bucks or more!

and here is a real killer, don't ever get a cash adavance as the apr on that is approaching 100% after you add up all the fees.

Plus I wouldn't travel abroad and use this card. 3% fee on anything bought abroad on top of them assuring you a terrible exchange rate they are going to wack you for an additional 3%.

Not a good deal at all!
