American Express Gold Card and Rose Gold Card 50K Membership Reward Points
American Express recently revamped one of their most iconic credit cards making it among the most competitive in terms of credit card reward points (4x point categories – more on this below). The AMEX Gold Card (formerly the Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card) has undergone a complete makeover (including a Rose Gold version of the card) in the way it rewards members for making purchases. With the card officially released, mail offers are beginning to be sent with RSVP initiations for consumers who meet pre-qualification requirements. If you have received a mail offer you can visit the offer page (www.AmericanExpress.com/MyGoldCard) to begin your application process.
The mail offer provides customers with 50,000 Membership Reward Points when the required spending has been met in the specified time. For this offer, customers will be required to make purchases totaling $2,000 within the first three months of opening their new account. This welcome bonus provides points which can be used for trips, meals, merchandise and much more.

Features Of The New American Express Gold Card:
The biggest change that is garnering rave reviews is the new 4x point rewards for dining out. Cardholders who make purchases with their AMEX Gold or Rose Gold card will earn 4x points on all purchases made at US Restaurants. Additionally, customers will receive the same whopping 4x points on all supermarket purchases (up to $25,000 annually). These two category rewards set this card far apart from much of the competition in similar reward categories. Other aspects of this card worth highlighting include:
- $120 dining credit ($10 per month for eligible partner dining locations)
- $100 airline fee credit (for airline incidents – cardholders must select a specific airline for this feature)
- Ability to pay your bill overtime instead of full balance (interest will apply to balances)
- 3x Points on flights booked with Airlines or AMEX travel
- This card has a $250 annual fee
Overall, this credit card is very attractive especially with the bonus welcome offer of 50,000 MR Points. If you are interested in the Rose Gold Version of the card you should plan to apply for this card sooner than later and this is reported to be a limited edition and may not be offered for very long.
