Started from the bottom now we're here!

Started from a $250 prepaid capital one platinum card with $250 limit in Dec. 2015 with 440 equifax. Last week I got a venture one card with $5k limit. Yesterday I was approved for an Amex premier rewards Gold charge card with 698 Equifax and all balances paid every month since dec 2015. 

I only dreamed of the luxury of having my name on this card less than two years ago. Today feels like I have the Rolex of cards in my wallet.

Thanks Amex!

Good card but get a better one.

This card is good. Airline credit pays for a portion of your annual fee.  However, the Chase Sapphire card is in fierce competition with this card and the rewards and points far outweighs the AmEx card and reward system.

And, I forgot to mention the Sapphire card is beautiful and lower annual fee! Please check it out before applying for this card! Trust me. I have both. I will be canceling this card once my first year is over. :) 


Our Take

The Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express is a charge card with great rewards that’s aimed at good-to-excellent credit consumers.

What to Like

There are plenty of ways to earn rewards with this card. You can earn 3x points on flights booked directly with airlines, 2x points at eligible U.S. gas stations, U.S. restaurants, and U.S. supermarkets and 1x points on other eligible purchases. There’s also a rewards bonus if you meet minimum spending requirements, no annual fee for the first year and no pre-set spending limit.

Look Out For

This is a charge card, meaning you’re required to pay your balance in full each month. There’s also a $195 annual fee after your first year and no pre-set spending limit doesn’t mean unlimited spending.
