Premier Rewards Gold refresh: 4x USA dining, groceries, $10/mon dining credit. $250.




$10/month statement credit for dining when using the PRG at Grubhub, Seamless, Ruth's Chris, The Cheesecake Factory, and participating Shake Shacks. Annual value up to $120.

Look under the benefits tab after you log into your PRG account. Requires enrollment.

Another piecemeal benefit brought to you by AMEX.

Edit: Apparently there's now 4X points on supermarkets and dining as well. Screenshot added.

Do not see it yet. May come later. Still not sure if this is going to swing me to the PRG. It is on my chopping block.

Thx for the head up.

If there's a way to determine whether the Shake Shack by my workplace participates, I might actually get some use out of this benefit. That assumes I get the PRG again at some point, though.

With the new expanded points earnings (see above), I'm thinking it's now a keeper. I was also considering cancellation.

I think we need to see if this is actually a product refresh -or- a targeted pilot of a potential refresh. If it's a test there may be multiple versions, and many of us might see nothing because any test needs a control group.

4x at dining and supermarket would will CSR IMHO specially considering it is a $195 AF card with $100 travel credit and $120 dining credit.

I'd love for this to be public. Particularly the 4x dining. Knowing AMEX it will be US restaurants only, but it's something. If this goes public, I'd apply. After Chase cut Korean Airlines I don't have much use for UR.

-OR- simply a mistake if it's a new card, rather than a refresh.

Contacted AmEx. Some changes (benefits) will come to the PRG card, all card holders, on 10/4/2018. The CSR won't disclose the details since they are not final to them. I figure the new benefits will come to all of us.

At least AmEx is doing something right with this card....
