Re: Amex PRG Just Got Better! $250 AF

I specifically ordered non contactless and happilly received it (hate the symbol). However, since I don't have a contactless version I can't compare weight so I have no clue. Regardless of whether it is or isnt heavy its a beautifully minimalist card that I cant stop pulling out my wallet Smiley LOL

Weigh it! It looks like the contactless card weighs 15g. How's the thickness compared to your CSP and Amazon card?

Yes, please weigh it. My finger is itching to click the apply button.

Got my Gold a couple of days ago. Just put in the request for Rose Gold and it's going through. The Gold (contactless) is no where near as rigid as my platinum and not as heavy. Platinum definitely feels like a much more premium card than the Gold.

AmEx chat told me they could not order a non-contactless Gold Card for me:

 

"I checked with our team..

They confirmed that they are not issuing non contactless cards at this moment. If we have this option available, we will definitely let you know."
 
Has anyone successfully received a new non-contactless Gold Card?

I received one, but probably because I requested it expedited right when it came out. I was told specifically by the supervisor that all of their cards come with both contactless and non-contactless versions.

Jude_Bray: thank you.

AmEx told me I could not request a new card until my account has been open for 10 days, so once that happens, I'll see what they say about the non-contactless version.

Re: Amex PRG Just Got Better! $250 AF

No problem. I am guessing either they ran out (there is a thread on here where many are ordering non contactless) OR perhaps they are rethinking whether they want consumers to have non contactless versions if all of their marketing shows the contactless version. Regardless, I would just call back in 10 days when they said and snag you one Smiley Wink
