Why We Like It
The American Express Gold Card is a powerhouse for earning Amex Membership Rewards points thanks to a couple of lucrative bonus categories.

While it comes with a $250 annual fee, it also comes with up to $120 in Uber credits per calendar year and up to $120 dining credits per calendar year.

One of the major selling points of the Amex Green is that it earns Membership Rewards points which can be transferred to airline programs such as Air Canada Aeroplan, ANA Mileage Club, and Air France-KLM Flying Blue.
