If that's the case is there any worthwhile reason for the average person to shell out more money to get the Gold cards with the regular Amex Membership Rewards program? Because I don't foresee using my points on airfare and if the points are worth the exact same otherwise then I can't see how American Express can justify the differences in annual fees.
You do get a lot of extra things for your annual fee. If you compare the benefits in detail you will see. Also, the different cards allow you to earn points differently and different promos for earning like bonus points for travel, gas and groceries.
