This card offers Earn 4X Membership Rewards® Points on Restaurants worldwide, including takeout and delivery. Additionally, earn 4X Membership Rewards® points at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases, then 1X), and 3X Membership Rewards® points on flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com. Cardholders can earn 35,000 Membership Rewards® Points after you spend $4,000 on eligible purchases with your new Card within the first 3 months.

Membership Rewards® can be used on multiple airlines with no seat restrictions or blackout dates, or they can be used to book hotels, cruises and vacation packages – all while still earning from your own frequent flyer and guest rewards programs, as applicable. Points can also be redeemed for rewards from participating retailers.

The American Express® Gold Card provides cardholders with a suite of services such as Fraud Protection Guarantee, Return Protection, Extended Warranty, Purchase Protection, and Emergency Card Replacement services. American Express Travel Service is also available with features like Baggage Insurance Plan, Emergency Check-In, Assured Reservations, Car Rental Loss and Damage Insurance, and Travel Accident Insurance. Some programs and services may require enrollment. *Terms and limitations apply.

The Bottom Line

The card offers a much faster way to earn rewards points on various purchases such as restaurants worldwide and U.S. supermarkets. There's no foreign transaction fee and balances must be paid in full at the end of every month.

The Good

You can fast-track your rewards and earn them up to three times as fast while enjoying all the prestige and benefits of an American Express Gold Card.

The Not So Good

Prestige comes at a price. You pay $250 annually
