Do I have to pay the annual fee. Before I use the card ?

I am thinking about applying for the card. My timing is in the next few weeks,. Do I have to pay the annual fee before I can use the card to charge anything? Or does my first bill include both the annual fee and a few charges?

The annual fee is included on your first statement, whether or not you use the card.

I think that answers it, but to be extra clear yes you can use the card right away.
