New American Express Card Worth Considering

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.
