Expert Reviews

From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

For foodies, travelers and commuters, there’s a lot to like about the recently overhauled American Express® Green Card. Earn 3X Membership Rewards® points on all eligible travel, from subway swipes and window seats to hotel stays and city tours. Earn 30,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $2,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months.

There is a $150 annual fee. But, that is than offset by the generous yearly statement credits for CLEAR membership and Loungebuddy. There are no foreign transaction fees, which can save you up to 3% on purchases when you travel out of the country.
