Dropping Amex Platinum. Best no fee Amex?
I’ll be dropping my Amex Platinum because I can no longer justify the AF (among other things) in the next couple months and am looking to move to a no or low-fee Amex.
I have a significant amount of MRs that I want to retain access to. I’m looking at the following cards:
– Blue from American Express® Card
– Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express
Can I still maintain MRs if I close my platinum and open the Blue Cash Everyday? I understand both the cards have foreign transaction fees, but I have enough other cards without to use for travel.
Thoughts, advice, and other potential cards?
Blue Business Plus would be best if you can get a business card (2x points on the first $50k), otherwise Amex Everyday for a no-fee personal card
The “Blue Cash” doesn’t earn real Membership Rewards points, so I wouldn’t recommend it in your case.
Everyday and Everyday Preferred both keep your premium MRs. I dont believe the Blue or Blue Cash does.
