Golden Confusion

Postby djrez4 » Tue Aug 07, 2012 12:42 pm

I received my Amex Gold card last week. The confusion stems from this: the card itself says it's a premier rewards card; my online account does not mention premier rewards. What do I have?

Since the card says premiere rewards it must be exactly that. If you are unsure you can call and ask. The Premiere Rewards has an AF of 175 vs 125 for the Gold.

I called in to figure it out because I wanted to know what MR points I'd be earning and how much I'd be paying for it. The CS rep told me that Amex had a glitch over the past week or so that meant anyone who asked for a replacement Gold card received a PRG by accident. So, I'm regular Gold, even though my card says PRG. I can ask to upgrade in 13 months.
