Is this the most Useless Credit Card Ever?

Was looking at a few different rewards cards and came across this one? I can't figure out who would actually get this.

With the amount of repairs you'll need for a used MB, a credit card might not be a bad idea.

I'd rather have a mileage card then. Fly me somewhere warm while my car is fixed

I'm a big fan of chase freedom cards if you're still looking. Or Citi AAdvantage if you're a traveler. Chase has an 18m 0% interest period as well.

Don't forget the 5% cash back from certain retailers every quarter.

I've been looking at the Chase Sapphire Reserve/Preferred Cards and the Southwest RapidRewards Card. I don't fly American enough to justify their card

Never seen this card before, and while it's not for me, I don't see why it's useless to anyone interested in new MBs. For $95 annual fee you get $500/yr toward an MB, $50 in accessories, plus a 1,000 mile waiver which equates to $250 value over life of the lease (assuming $0.25/mile). Then you get 4x points on MB purchases. In every other way it's identical to the base Amex card. Seems like a fine card to me for MB lessees, decent for frequent buyers of MBs as well.

+1 CitiAdvantage Executive World Elite for frequent travelers. Though believe the 100,000 mile launch bonus has ceased.
