Amex gold doesn't have an aggressive points system, PR does but are the points really worth the $175 annual?
Seems like unless I have the platinum I'm basically throwing the annual out since I can get a better return with other cards.
The only advantage I'm getting right now is fact that it helps me manage my money since I never overspend. The roadside assistance seems interesting but I'm assuming a tow is going to run me more than the $50. The hotel credit of $75/night plus upgrade is for only select hotels in major cities for the most part.
How are you guys getting something out of your gold cards?
Noticed you're from NY. If you're in NYC you will have a lot of early ticket access to shows and events. The year end summary is also useful.
