Why I love the Amex Gold

Updated: Sep 15

Do you eat food? Do you love to travel? I mean if that's the case then you should have this card.

The Amex Gold is my favorite and go-to card because it gives me 4x back on groceries and dining out. So pretty much if you buy groceries, dine out or takeaway, you will benefit from this card. Plus it racks up membership rewards points so you can use them to book travel! Now if you don't already know, I use my points to transfer out to travel partners and Amex has some great options including Marriott, Hilton, Air France/KLM, Qantas and Emirates.

Among the points you get for buying food, you will also earn 3x points on all flights booked either in the travel portal or directly with airlines.

Now if you live in an area where you use Uber or Uber eats regularly this will also be a great card for you. When signing up, you will receive $10 in Uber cash each month to use on Uber Eats or Uber rides which equals $120 in Uber Cash annually. Another benefit is you will receive a $10 monthly dining credit to be used with GrubHub/Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Goldbelly, Wine.com, Milk Bar and select Shake Shack locations. In total, you will get $240 each years towards dining out. Since the annual fee is $250, this pretty much brings it down to $10 for the year.

When signing up for this card you also will get a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $4,000 in the first six months. Plus you get a choice of either the gold or rose gold card if you fancy like that.

If you want to up your travel game and add this card to your wallet, I would love it if you used my Referral link.
