Update: This offer for American Express® Gold Card has expired. Learn more about the current offers here.

In October the new American Express® Gold Card was introduced, which is a rebranded version of the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card.

This card has a $250 annual fee, and offers some of the best bonus categories of any American Express card, including:

  • 4x Membership Rewards points at U.S. restaurants
  • 4x Membership Rewards points at U.S. supermarkets, on up to $25,000 in purchases annually
  • 3x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with airlines or through

On top of that, the Amex Gold Card offers up to $220 in annual dining and airline fee credits, as follows:

  • A $120 dining credit, which gives enrolled members up to $10 per month in statement credits when they use their card at eligible dining partners, including Shake Shack, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and Grubhub/Seamless
  • A $100 airline fee credit every calendar year

This can nicely offset the annual fee, though the degree to which that’s the case depends on how much you’d otherwise spend with the dining partners they have.

Anyway, while there are no imminent changes to the card’s welcome bonus at the moment, there is something that’s ending soon.

For a limited time, the Amex Gold Card can be had in your choice of either gold or rose gold. I do have to say, the rose gold card is really cool-looking. Is a card’s appearance a reason to get it? No, at least I don’t think so. But if you’re going to get the card anyway, adding some color to your wallet can be fun.

If you’ve been considering getting the card, note that the last day to get a rose gold Amex Gold Card is January 9, 2019, meaning you have just one day left to get this card in rose gold.

At the time you apply for the Amex Gold Card you’ll be asked what color you’d like, so just make your choice at that point.

Personally this isn’t a card I’m getting for now, since I now earn 5x points on dining with the Citi Prestige, but this is still a very well rounded and rewarding card.

  1. Snooze. This card holds little value for my spending patterns. The Rose Gold color might be the best perk, unfortunately. I’ll probably pick up some SWA cards instead…

  2. Do you think the contactless feature would work with the metal iteration of the card? I know some have had trouble with metal card, like on London’s tube readers.

    Also, if I currently have the plastic version and request the metal one…will both work or will AmEx deactivate the original plastic one?

  3. For me the big draw of this card is that while many cards offer bonus points for dining, this one is one of the very few with high bonuses for both dining and groceries that are directly transferable to miles. Another plus is that authorized user cards are free unlike the Prestige, CSR and Amex Plat so you can share the card with the family to maximize earning.

  4. I did apply for this card last night, specifically for the Rose Gold card. I am not eligible for the bonus. I figure I will break even with the credits, and just use it for dining and groceries.

  5. I eat out a lot and part of my bonus was 20% back on all restaurant purchases for the first few months. When that first statement came in there were two pages of itemized 20% off money from restaurants alone. I’ve already paid for the annual fee with that one feature.. Then, the airline credits came in at $100, which I’m about to get again now that the calendar has flipped to 2019. I’m getting 40,000 reward points.. it just goes on and on (free lunch at shake shack each month). I’ve made out like a bandit on this card!

  6. Phil, the terms of that 20% bonus offer said that the statement credit limit is $100. Are you sure that you actually got $250 (paid for the annual fee)? Did it include any restaurants from the $10 a month category (Ruth’s Steakhouse, CheesecakeFactory)?

  7. I was recently jejected for the Rose Card with a credit score of 818.
    The agent I called couldn’t give me any reasonable explanation!!!!!
    Is that normal?
    I have the Platinum, Aspire, SPG Card from them.
    Thanks for the advice.
