Our Take

The Mastercard® Gold CardTM is a high-end credit card that even looks luxurious.

What to Like

Let’s start with the obvious: This thing is plated in 24-karat gold. That’s something to like. Cardholders also get access to a lot of perks, including a $200 annual airline credit, access to VIP airport lounges, $100 toward a Global Entry application fee and periodic luxury gifts that you’ll receive in the mail.

Look Out For

This is a high-end card, so cardholders will usually have strong credit scores. There’s a $995 annual fee and a $295 annual fee for each additional user.

ANNUAL IS DISGUSTING
UPTHEWAZZOOO Cardholder

Don't get dupped on this card.  I signed up for it and got it!  I was told there was NO ANNUAL FEE!   WRONG, they LIED TO ME, cancelled the card less than 24 after activating it.

ANNUAL FEE is $ 995/year!   That equals $75/month just to carry it.

Great Card Fee to much..
Kbaker80 Cardholder

I just got the card I have a platinum Amex as well. Both cards are the best of the luxury card segment for the none super rich. I will have to see if the gifts they send will make up for the 400 dollar fee difference between the two. But so far so good..

Bragging rights card
Kibarrow Cardholder

What you should know.... every app turns into a manual process.

It took about 30 hrs from the time of submit for acceptance notification.

The app update site is truly the best at letting you know your status.

Chase Sapphire Reserve will expedite NEW approved cards, they will not for some reason. (Odd)

Would I recommend the card? 1- To each his own. 2- I do not have enough customer service interaction, problem resolution, reward redemption to give honest feedback.

I like the way it looks and feels
EranB Cardholder

I would say it's a good "show off" card if this is what you are looking for. You will definitely get attention here and there when you pay with the card. It's weight 22 grams compared to only 5 grams of a typical plastic card. It's also relatively exclusive card that most peaple haven't seen due to the high anual fee. It's get scratched easily but I'm sure that for the 995 dollars fee that you are paying each year, they will be more then happy to provide you with a fresh card when you ask for it ;)
