Not sure which card is best for you?
Aside from a flashy welcome bonus, the American Express® Gold Card has a competitive ongoing value, as well. You'll get 3 points per dollar when you book flights directly with airlines; 2 points per dollar at U.S. gas stations, U.S. supermarkets and U.S. restaurants; and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases, with no spending caps. The card can even help you trim hotel costs, offering a credit of up to $75 when you use it to book at least two consecutive nights at a hotel in American Express's Hotel Collection.
Keep in mind, the American Express® Gold Card isn't for everyone. For some airlines, you may be able to get a better deal with a different card, and you may fetch more rewards with another offer if you don't fly often. But if you travel frequently and airline tickets are a major ongoing expense for you, this card is well worth its annual fee. Read the full review here.
