The new Amex Gold card came out earlier this month. It is a great product and an enhancement from the previous version. It earns 4X at restaurants, which is probably the best rate out there if you value Membership Rewards and 4X at supermarkets is also a very good rate, only topped by a couple of cards. You can read my review here.
It also comes with a 50K bonus. However, if you have had the Amex Premier Rewards Gold card in the past you will not be eligible to get the signup bonus on the new Amex Gold Card.
But Amex is sending out mailers with the same public offer for the new Amex Gold card. One great thing about these mailers is that they do not have the lifetime language. Here’s the mailer that was posted on reddit. That means that even if you have had the Amex Premier Rewards Gold card in the past you will still be eligible to get the signup bonus on the new Amex Gold Card.
If you’ve never had the Premier Rewards Gold card, then you can just apply for the new Amex Gold Card without worries. But those who are not eligible for a bonus have a great opportunity through this mailers. Definitely keep an eye out and hopefully you receive one. Make sure to double check that your offer doesn’t contain the lifetime language.
Did anyone get a mailer offer? Let me know!
