Reviews

The American Express Green Card is a charge card, meaning you can’t revolve a balance from month to month.

It’s not a very rewarding card, especially compared to other charge cards from Amex. It’s designed for travel spending, offering 2X points per dollar on eligible travel purchases through Amex Travel, and 1X point per dollar on all other purchases.

This card has a $95 annual fee that is waived the first year.

Only good for nostalgia

The Amex Green card is past its sell by date. With the card you get subpar rewards with mediocre benefits all with a high annual fee. Go with the Amex Everyday instead.

Prestige Charge Card AMEX

For an average credit score of 687. I was surprised to receive an offer to apply for the American Express Green Card, and got approved in less then 60 seconds. Yes, it is not a credit card, but a charge prestige card. Connected to one of my checking accounts? The money awaits there automatically to be taken out at due date, with me not to worry. The benefits is not compared to any other bank cards. This is a great charge card, for travel and booking my hotels, rental cars and flights, through AMEXTRAVEL and enjoy double points, with no blackout dates Guaranteed. Just what I wanted for many years, finally came through. Thank you AMEX!
