I have been following the forum concerning whether to submit for an American Express Green Card or an American Express Gold Card. In the previous posts, many members have noted that because of the minor differences in annual fee price ($30/year more at the time), that one should just apply for the Gold.
Currently, the annual fee for a Gold Card is $175, where the Green is still $95, which is a $80 difference.
But is it true that there is, again, a purposed raise in annual fee now to $195/year.
My question is: Is it still worth it to pay $100/year more for a Gold Card? Are the benefits on a Gold Card much more outstanding than a Green Card?
From my understanding, a Green Card is 1x points, where as, a Gold Card is up to 3x points on Airlines, 2x on gas and groceries, and 1x on everything else.http://boardingarea.com/deltapoints/2014/02/04/delta-skymiles-amex-platinum-card-fee-will-increase-195-per-year-1may2014/
