Amex Green Credit Card Benefits

American Express Green Credit Card offers a decent bouquet of benefits to members beginning with the waiver of the annual fee for the first year although a fee of $95 is applicable in subsequent years. An outstanding feature of Amex Card is its Membership Rewards Points which provides members with the opportunity of doubling (2x) their Rewards Points apart from the regular 1x points. Additionally, 25,000 Points await members who are able to spend up to $1,000 making eligible purchases on their new cards within a 3-month window.

Members making payment for select services including flights, hotel and cruise bookings can save hard-earned cash by using the Membership Reward Points gained by making eligible purchases. Shopping with Amex Green Credit Card can be done with greater confidence using Amex Green Card protective covering is provided for members with special packages that include Purchase and Return Protection as well as Extended Warranty. Annual spending patterns can be controlled proactively by members by using the Amex Year-End Summary for their assessment. Maximizing membership to enjoy full green card benefits can be easily accomplished by downloading the Amex Green mobile app and in the event that any inconsistency appears in a member's account statement, an in-built dispute resolution mechanism is available to sort it out.

Amex Green Credit Card Drawbacks

While this card allows users to pile points for purchases elsewhere, the annual fee of $95 is still a bit pricey for its range and with a good credit rating as a prerequisite for obtaining the green credit card, the entry threshold may be slightly above the reach of a segment of the market. Inspite of the number of benefits it offers, in this regard, the Amex Green card still falls short of some other cards offered by American Express.
