    I wonder how many of you use the same PIN for all their cards?

    "Research shows that in the UK 24 percent of cardholders, namely 9.84 million of a total of 41 million, are using the same PIN number for all their credit and debit cards."

    Daddy, AMEX has changed the design of the green card this year. My card was issued in 2006 that's why it look different (better) than the 'newer' green card. My annual fee remains unchanged at 37.50 a year as well. New cardholders are now being charged an absurd 60 a year with same benefits.
