Pros and cons

Pros

  • High rewards rates

  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • Has annual fee

  • Some low-value redemptions

The American Express® Green Card is aimed at those on the go. It offers 3 Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on eligible travel and transit purchases and 3 points per $1 spent on restaurants worldwide. All other eligible purchases earn 1 point per $1 spent. Terms apply.

The card charges a hefty annual fee, but it comes with perks that heavy travelers might find appealing, including:

--Up to $100 per year in statement credit when you use the card to pay for your Clear membership fee. (Clear is a prescreening program at certain airports and other venues that uses biometrics to verify your identity)

--Up to $100 per year in statement credit when you use the LoungeBuddy service to purchase airport lounge passes with your card. (LoungeBuddy lets you buy single-use day passes.)

Terms apply.
