American Express now offers the Premier Rewards Gold Card.
- 15,000 bonus American Express Membership Rewards points after $1000 in spend
- No fee the first year
- Triple points on airfare
- Double points on gas and groceries
After the first year the annual fee is $175 (ouch!) but if you spend enough on airfare it could be worth it. I need to consider this card for myself since I buy enough tickets for other people in addition to myself, the bonus on airfare will probably make the annual fee more than worthwhile.
