This will be my first credit card and I am definitely looking forward to be apart of the Amex family. From what I understand the Green card is a solid basic use card and that's what I need since I won't be needing travel rewards and other rewards of that nature.
This is just from what I understood but I read mixed responses on the card from other websites on Google but I am hoping to hear some responses from veteran credit card holders and experts like you guys on this forum . With this I was wondering two things:
- Is the Amex Green Card a good card for a person my age/younger person
- How does the Amex Green Card fare overall?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated

And start picking up the bar tab every night. Use it wisely and it will pay off in the future. I miss my Amex Green, it looks so sharp. I still have it in my backup wallet just for kicks.

Also thanks for bringing this up Dr. Mark because I wanted to mention a question I had initially regarding the fact that its a charge card not a credit card. So as far as the Green Card being a charge card will it help me build my credit even though there isn't a preset limit? I have also been reading mixed responses on the web regarding this issue and I am hoping to get a solid answer to it.
