American Express Green Card No Longer Accepting New Applications – Refresh Incoming – More Details
Card is now live, view more details here.
Update 10/21/19: Looks like we have more details based on this image a redditor posted (apparently from the CEO town hall today).
- 30,000 Membership Rewards welcome bonus + limited time $100 luggage credit from away
- $150 annual fee
- Card will earn 3x points on travel, transit & dining
- $100 CLEAR credit
- $100 Loungebuddy credit
- TV ads will go live Thursday, so expecting the card to launch by then
Don’t think the card is worth keeping if that is the full list of benefits.
Update: Reddit user regancai noticed this ad when logged into their American Express account:
Looks like that will be the sign up bonus, rather than a benefit for existing users?
Original post: The American Express Green Card is currently not accepting new applications (this has been confirmed by @AskAmEx). There has been speculation and rumors that the card would be refreshed for some time. Some reddit users have reported receiving an e-mail for the new card and offer. It seems like the launch bonus will be 35,000 Membership Rewards after $1,000 in spend and the card could be getting a name change to ‘Amex Preferred Rewards Green Card‘. Previously rumors indicated the annual fee would be $95 and it would come with an Amazon Prime membership, possibly some sort of partnership with Away luggage and also earn at the following rates:
- 4x points on gas purchases
- 3x points on streaming services
That is all unconfirmed at this stage, we should know more soon.
