Two of the four cards are no longer offered. They are listed on the website so that current cardholders can reference information about their benefits:
To my knowledge this card is no longer available as a stand alone product, but is offered only as a supplementary card for Platinum (and perhaps Centurion) cardholders. If you attempt to apply for this card you will be taken to the Preferred Rewards Gold application.
Rewards Gold Card
This card participated in Membership Rewards Options
, and is effectively discontinued because American Express has announced the elimination of the Options
program for charge cards effective October. If you attempt to apply for this card you will be taken to the Preferred Rewards Gold application.
Preferred Rewards Gold
This card participates in Membership Rewards. Annual fee $130 + $35 for up to five additional cards.
Rewards Plus Gold Card
This card participates in Membership Rewards plus
it earns bonus points (first year double, 1.5 thereafter) on transactions with Membership Rewards transfer partner airlines and hotel chains. Annual fee $150 with no charge for up to five additional cards.
Unless you need only one card Rewards Plus Gold is less expensive than Preferred Rewards Gold.
