This newly upgraded American Express charge card stands head and shoulders above the old Green card: Now you’ll get points back on travel and dining, plus annual statement credits for a CLEAR membership and LoungeBuddy airport lounge access. With all the new features, you could easily get more than the annual $150 you’ll be putting in.
