Re: Rumors about AMEX Green?

If the leak is true, this is a product squarely aimed at the

millenial market with all the buzz words, environmental

emphasis, and trendy partners.

 

Looks like a legit inside leak.

 

Lounge Buddy (*but only enough to credit 2-3 visits)

Clear (Airport Screening)

Away (luggage)

"Parley for the Oceans" (plastic recycling)

"Paperless statements" promotional tagline

"Peer-to-Peer" promotional tagline

"Mobile Assistant Servicing" promotional tagline

 

Also looks like more hype than substance.  Pass.

TBH, after looking at it, right off the bat the image just looks "off". 

 

I think Amex has better graphic designers than that, lol.

Re: Rumors about AMEX Green?

Anybody want to take bets on the bonus multiplier on "travel" being only through amextravel.com?

Re: Rumors about AMEX Green?

Definitely not taking that bet Disco, I don't think they have a card with travel category that isn't through amextravel.com.  I bet the multiplier is x2, though!

 

If that picture is true this card does not interest me in the slightest, but mainly because I have other cards that cover the bonus categories already, not that it is bad by itself.  Those credits aren't really useful to me personally, at all.

Re: Rumors about AMEX Green?

The credits aren’t useful to me either, and they really don’t make a lot of since. I feel like if you are someone who would benefit from clear or loungebuddy, you probably already have a better travel card because you are traveling a lot. I’m not sure who exactly they are aiming for with this card, if this leak is even true.

Don't be so quick to dismiss it based on graphics.

It could be a draft version or an internal powerpoint, not a finished webpage.

I wouldn't. AMEX tries to cut corners on rewards while advertising how great they are. 

 

  • Rewards caps (groceries up to 6k per year, BBP up to 50k, etc.).

 

  • You can earn 5x the points on hotel purchases... But oh wait, you have to book through AMEX travel. Wonderful if you want to use Fine Hotels and Resorts - lame if you want to book any other hotel. For example, at a casino/resort I stay at, I have to pay full price for the hotel room (which isn't any cheaper than the rate when booking directly through the hotel). If I book direclty through the hotel, I can get a discount for being a AAA member of about $30 a night. Why would I want to use AMEX travel at that point? I'm paying more money to earn rewards. AMEX obviously takes a cut of the hotel cost and/ or charges the cardmember a fee when they book travel through them.  

 

  • The old days when Blue Cash cards had you redeem cash in $25 increments, so AMEX was hoping you'd never be able to redeem all of your earned rewards if you closed the card. 

 

Some great examples there.
