Re: Amex Rose Gold is back with a referral.

Existing Gold holders can change to it if they prefer it.  New Gold applications can get approved and then change to it as well.  Technically, the referral isn't needed.

Re: AMEX Gold still worth it?

Is there a wait period before I can request a replacement card?


I received the regular Gold originally.  Then a month later they brought back the Rose Gold option.  Just received it and there's a small scratch/scuff that won't rub out to the right of my name.


If I need replacement cards past the new limited window to request the Rose Gold card, will replacements still come in Rose Gold or regular Gold?

AMEX Gold - solid metal card?

I requested a replacement non-contactless gold card because I remembered reading that non-contactless cards are a solid piece of metal rather than a sandwiched two pieces. But the replacement card I got is still a metal sandwich. Do they not make these out of one solid piece of metal anymore? Or did I get it confused with another card?

There never was a 100% solid metal amex card.

The back has to be plastic for the RFID/NFC payment capability to work. It's so low power, it has trouble going through metal, much like how wireless charging works on a cell phone.

Unless you're being a wiseguy by saying that it's 99% metal, the AMEX Platinum non-contactless is full metal (no sandwich).


The AMEX Gold has never been full metal (contactless and non-contactless).
