I have recently been able to obtain a green card from AMEX. I was thinking about applying for the gold card because every six months or so, i do fly from the west coast back to the east coast and rent a car while i am there. I understand that the gold would be better for this but my concerns are:
1. Will they do another credit check? I don't want to necessarily take another credit hit right now.
2. Would it be worth the $125 annual fee on this card to get the added benefits of the travel that i do? Its about 6000 miles for the total trip and i do that about twice a year. If i go with my fiance that is double. this may not be enough to justify getting the gold and therefore i would just stay with my green.
