Scene points are great.
I enjoy earning scene points, while spending on stuff I would normally buy. I use my card more to get the extra points.
It was kind of complicated to apply for the card but once I got approved they at least sent me an email to let me know.
Very smooth, fast
I like getting Scene points but I spoke to a CSR who was rude.
