Why We Like It
The American Express® Green Card doesn’t get a lot of chatter, but perhaps that should change. Given that this card’s annual fee is only $150, it comes with great bonus categories plus a couple of travel credits that can easily offset the annual fee.

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.

on transit purchases including trains, taxicabs, rideshare services, ferries, tolls, parking, buses, and subways
