my understanding is that PRG gets 2x dining, $100 airline credit fee, personal concierge service and no forex AF $195.
and gold gets 2x dining, 2x on tix w airlines, no forex (and personal concierge service?) AF $160
As far as I understand, the regular Gold (not PRG) is getting no extra benefits at all. It was even nerfed a few months ago by losing the top Amex roadside assistance tier.
The regular Gold really is a remarkably awful deal. Most people who have it, it seems, just like to have something shiny that says 'American Express' on it. Ignoring image factors and just looking at the value a card offers, most people would be best off dropping the card or paying the extra money for a PRG or Platinum.
Keeping indefinitely: IHG, SchwabPlat, CSP, Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE, Hyatt
