Entry-level card for earning Membership Rewards points, but American Express has several other cards worth considering over the Green Card.
Review of the American Express® Green Card
This classic American Express® Green Card offers convenience in booking travel, and all the standard Amex benefits for travel, shopping, and entertainment. As a charge card, you will have to pay your balance every month, which is a good way to keep your spending in check, but not a great way to make big purchases that you may want to pay for over time. And, if you’re not making big purchases on the card, at an earnings rate of 2X for amextravel.com purchases and 1X for all other purchases it will take a long time to accumulate Membership Rewards®, especially since Amex is not currently offering a sign-up bonus with this card. Still, if you’re looking for the standard American Express travel, shopping, and entertainment benefits, this is a solid charge card with a relatively low annual fee.
The Bottom Line
Because only purchases on amextravel.com will earn you multiplied points, if you’re looking for more Membership Rewards®, the Premier Rewards Gold card would be a better option.
