    Grandfathered Aspire World Travel cards are still the best CC IMO. And phenomenal customer service.

    They used to offer a pretty good travel credit card outside of the Costco CC too. It's not offered any more for new clients but people that had it were grandfathered and got to keep it.

    They used to do a secured card version. I needed a card and it was the only option.

    Great...I wonder if we'll be notified if we were personally affected.

    Nothing to worry about here. They downloaded the data and got raided before they had a chance to do anything stupid with it.

    Yep, to this day I haven't found anything as generous on points or as easy to redeem. A flat 2% on everything you run through the card everywhere, no annual limits, redeemable on anything travel related. Just book your best deal wherever that may be and have your points applied to wipe out the charge.

    Like others said, grandfathered cards when things were great. I use mine as the primary card, mine is the cashback version and not the travel one, but to this day I use it for everything everywhere.

    Not too concerned about this really.

    Does anyone still think their data hasn't been compromised in some way, shape, or form, at this point?

    I cancelled my C1 as the 150$ yearly fee meant I was earning less than a 1.5% or 1.75% cashback credit card, with or without 120$ fee.
    One thing I will miss though is how easy it was to redeem points for any travel expenses
