Philosophuer wrote:It puzzles me as to why when you have a AMEX GOLD PR card most people assume your wealthy. I recently pulled my card out to pay for a dinner that I was having with a couple of friends, and they could not stop talking about it, making remarks like, "wow, someone has a high tax bracket!"
Now I know some of it is all in good fun, but I was kinda embarrassed. I didn't know a card would spark so much attention, I use it for everything so it wasn't as if I was showing off. Also on another occasion I was in Lord and Taylor, the reps paid little attention to me until I went to make a payment for a pair of gloves.
Pulled out the card, then it started the 21 questions, they ask me if I was satisfied, if I need help with another purchase, did the rep answer all my questions. In my head, I was thinking that a minute ago they couldn't care less, and the person I front of me who used her bank card did not get these questions. Is it just me or has this happened to anyone else? Any advice ?
It's because you have a high level premium card that alot of corporate executives , and high up have this card.
don't get me wrong there are plenty of average Joes that have a premium card. but when you pull out your gold yeh people have that image of your card, rember compared to them , they might have a regular American express card like Blue cash programs, the clear or Blue
so when they see your card there in ahhhhh.
