Exactly, I get 2% back every year and never have to buy an extended warranty. 
If a merchant screws with me, I just deny payment.  When I'm in a foreign
country, I can get as low as 1% surcharge on the exchange conversion.  All this
with no annual fee.  If I give in and get the "real" platinum card the benefits
more than pay for themselves if I continue to travel with any frequency.  There
is no reason NOT to pay with credit card if you pay it off every month. 
Unless, of course, you don't think you have any fiscal self control.
