    I can attest the same thing with AMEX. I paid a baggage fee (because I was too dumb to figure out to select 0 bags if you're military), and I've bought booze on the plane. Both were refunded by AMEX. Caveat: travel credit only applies to your selected airline (you designate one once per year if you like, in January), so beware of that fact.

    Good catch. The $450 fee in reality gets reduced to $150 after you use the $300 in travel credits. The other very nice part is the 50% bump if you use it for airfare, i.e., the 100,000 point bonus is actually good for $1500 in airfare.

    Combine that with the Hyatt Card I mentioned earlier (upon signing for it, you get 2 free nights at ANY Hyatt in the world) and you can travel pretty nicely. The Hyatt in Milan is a 5 star so that is a fantastic deal. After that, the card's $95 per year fee also gives you 1 free night per year - so it balances out. Lastly, the AMEX Blue Cash preferred gives a whopping 6% back on your first $6,000 in groceries. Although it too has a $95 per year fee, you still end up $265 ahead per year.
