Re: Changes to Amex Charge Cards???

The Senior Member Green is still offered. I just got one in January.

 

I PC'd from PRG to the SMG to save on the AF. AF for my SMG is $35/year. Its the exact same as the current Green except it earns no rewards.

I'm seeing the centurion ( both the consumer and business versions) in the list. There's a link to view the card member agreement for it too. Nothing about the rewards program though, unfortunately.

Re: Changes to Amex Charge Cards???

Thats alot of different cards.

 

I guess they are making it specific to certain companies they do alot of business with to gain more customers.

Re: Changes to Amex Charge Cards???

I don't know either. But I got the SMG when I asked to PC to a cheaper AF card. 

 

I'm neither a senior citizen (I'm 23 Smiley Very Happy) or been a LONG amex customer (Got my first amex in 2010).

 

I just asked if there was a cheaper AF card I could PC to and I causally mentioned Zync (already knowing it was discontinued, but it never hurts to ask) and the rep offered SMG saying the AF was only $10 more than Zync.

 

$35 with no rewards is a little high, but its worth it to keep an amex charge active. And the rep said I can add the standard MRE that Green gets for an extra $40 if I want in the future.
