Is that because they are paying out more rewards than they are taking in with APR?
I would assume the operations of the card are not losing money (seems sort of hard to do) but they paid Apple a little toooo much to be their exclusive partner.

I just looked up Avatar 1 and it made 2.92 billion in the box office. I can't really see them doing that twice though...

I mean it might get there, but the movie isn't as glorious as the first one/as I thought it would be. TG2 had more going for it, IMHO

oh you didn't like the second one? well my friend you are in luck

Combined with its run in international territories, Avatar 2 has made over $1.9 billion so far and looks set to claim Spider-Man: No Way Home's position as the sixth-highest-grossing movie of all time across the world. With solid box office performance, director James Cameron is ready to move forward with Avatar 3, 4, and 5.

the production was $400M and marketing another $200M. so that $2B break even number wasn't confirmed but every news outlet ran with it. its already deep into the green
It was fud from taste makers hoping it'd fail. Avatar is sorta Michael Bay esque in its hate, because it focuses on a simple, derivative plot that's really just a low brow visual spectacle.
But Avatars success proves people are cool with just being entertained without having to think too much.
Especially with superhero burnout, it was a breath of fresh air.
