Can still get 2X points even if booking with orbitz, expedia and similar sites as long as the charge appears coming from the airline itself.

American Express gold cost for rewards
Anonymous Cardholder

Had gold card for years and was paying for reward priveledge yearly. Dropped card and went with Capital One. No fees and more reward points per transaction.

Spoke to Amex rep. about this and agreed the no fee was a better deal. Also Amex is not accepted in quite a few places.

Once you have it, offer your friends your referral code... they get bonus miles as well as yourself... that way you can justify paying the annual fee. Speaking of which if you would like, here is my code to sign up for the card:
