As close to perfect as it can be

I'm sure individual cases are varies, just like some of the other reviewer's experiences are, however my experience has been nothing but good with Amex, every time I want to charge some large amount, I always check first ( a day before, not longer than that ) and always got approved and the transaction always went smoothly, one of the larger purchase I used is a down payment for a car at a dealership and it went through no problem, paid it off at the end of the month and rack the points up, well worth the annual fees.

Extremely bad experience!

When I received the offer by mail from AMEX to get the business gold rewards  card I decided to give it a try. I wanted to buy some new equipment for my business.  I'm a photographer, and I was thinking to invest in a new camera and gear for the amount around $10,000. When I first got the card I checked the spending power and was approved for the transaction for $10k. After 1.5 months I decided to make the purchase that I planned. For some reason system didn't approve me for the amount requested ($10,147.00), but it offered me to call to the customer service. I spend 45 minutes on the line and spoke with 6 or 7 (I have lost the count) customer service representatives explaining my situation over and over again. The last person whom I spoke to was even kinda rude. When I explained her the situation and started complaining that I'm repeating myself for the seventh time and XXX told me that she didn't ask me to do that. WHAT O_o  ?! I asked how she can possibly help me if she doesn't know the matter that I was calling about and received no answer. Finally, after 45 minutes on the phone, XXX told me that I was not approved the transaction amount that was requested without any reasonable explanation. So I closed my AMEX account and will never become they customer again. As a conclusion, I have to say that for the company that charges such a HUGE annual fee the customer service was just AWFUL, among the worst on the market like Comcast, Verizon, ATT  etc. I have couple credit cards with NO annual fee WHATSOEVER, but the customer service experience and the benefits are SO much better! I hope that some folks out there will find this review helpful!


Our Take

American Express is a Credit Karma partner

The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN is a charge card that can earn you serious rewards for business expenses.

What to Like

Rewards categories are targeted towards business expenses, with bonus reward categories for airfare, advertising, gas, shipping and computer purchases. For the first $100,000 in purchases, cardholders get 3x points in one of those categories (of their choosing), and 2x points in all the other four. There’s also no annual fee for the first year.

Look Out For

This is a charge card, meaning your full balance will be due when you receive your statement. There’s also a $175 annual fee after the first year.
