The first time I checked the Amex Gold Card, I was impressed.
It was a really nice card, with a $600 annual fee that could be used for purchases at most big banks.
It wasn’t much, but it was a lot of cash, and that was enough to fill a few wallets.
Then I saw the gold card and thought, Well, why not?
I could pay for a car with it, buy an apartment with it.
It had a good amount of cash in it, too, and it was backed by a big company that had been doing great things for consumers for years.
But then the AmEx Platinum card came along.
It’s a lot better than the Gold Card.
But I also have a lot more cash.
And I have a whole bunch of other reasons to like the Gold card.
The Gold card has a high annual fee.
You have to pay it.
I’ve used it twice and it’s paid off.
Amex does offer some perks.
It has a 10% cash back on purchases made at most major retailers, and you can take advantage of an annual fee-free membership, which you pay every three years.
It also has a $100 annual fee, so it’s a little pricey for everyday spending.
And it doesn’t carry the same security features as the Gold.
But the Platinum card is worth it for many people who have to go through the hassle of trying to pay for everything with cash and a credit card.
And, at the end of the day, I’m just happy to have another card that I can use when I need it.
