RE: What are the advantages of a gold American express card?
Spending with an American Express card has never been more convenient. With an American Express Gold Card however, the company seeks to provide even greater standards of convenience to their customers.
First of all, the American Express Gold Card does not have a pre-determined spending limit. This means that customers can spend to their heart’s delight as long as they do not leave outstanding balances at the end of the month.
Apart from that, the card also comes with two reward programs, one of which requires membership to enjoy redeemable rewards from collected points. Points can be collected by purchasing gas, shopping at supermarkets and pharmacies, sending mail or even paying phone bills. The points can then be used to redeem rewards in travel, shopping or entertainment. Some of the participating partners of American Express include Dell Computers, GAP and The Sharper Image. Furthermore, shopping online with the American Express Gold Card also entitles customers to free shipping for purchases, in addition to the benefit that customers are not accountable for unauthorized online purchases.
The second reward program is the frequent traveler program that allows customers to earn free flights from 6 participating airlines. There are no limitations as to the number of points that can be redeemed for any period of time as these points never expire. Apart from that, when customers purchase tickets with the American Express Gold Card, they are entitled to travel accident insurance as well as the option of using travelers’ checks overseas.
