The card has a few nice perks but it isn’t a great card for everyday spend, unless you really value American Airlines miles.  If you did have a lot of business spend and wanted to go after the companion certificate after $30,000 in spend there is some value there. But, you would most likely get a better return on that spend putting it on a different card.

Not worth keeping

from Doctor Of Credit

Personally I don’t think the benefits on this card make it worth keeping at all, it would have been nice if Barclaycard were able to put a more competitive business card together but I think the lack of business cardholders they have and the rather lackluster competing product Citi has would have made that difficult.
