The Revamped American Express Gold Charge Card | Fresh Features Added | #GoldRefresh

American Express Gold Charge Card New Benefits

On 13th July 2021, American Express had shot a mailer communication to its Gold Charge Cardholders notifying them of additional benefits on their card that American Express would reveal on 15th July 2021. A snippet of the mailer can be accessed in our Twitter handle by clicking here.

Although American Express wanted to keep its Gold Cardholders with bated breath until 15th July, their customer care executives were happy enough to break the secret pot, if enquired. Most card enthusiasts knew beforehand what added benefits were coming on their way.

American Express Gold Charge Card

Let's get into the details of the revamped American Express Gold Charge Card.

    Rewards Points on Utility Bills and Fuel 

    - With effect from 1 July 2021, Cardmembers will earn :

    • Accelerated rewards shall be credited within a period of 120 business days from the date of valid transaction.

    Monthly Fee Option

    • You can now opt to pay Rs. 375 + taxes every month towards the card's fee instead of an annual fee of Rs. 4,500 + taxes.
    • Once enrolled for the monthly fee option, you cannot switch the fee payment cycle back to the annual fee payment cycle in the same membership year.

    It's good to see American Express has shifted some of its focus towards the Amex Gold Card, which many felt was left ignored for a significant period of time. Many Gold Cardholders had limited themselves to use it 6 times for Rs. 1000 each to reap the monthly bonus membership rewards, and that's it. We fall in the same category. This makeover seems promising enough to encourage Gold Cardholders to use it elsewhere for a larger share of debit transactions.
