The American Express Gold card has plenty of incentives to use their card exclusively. The Rewards points are easy to accumulate when purchasing groceries, retail, airfare, and entertainment. The points can be used for an array of things including travel. Although you have to pay every month, this is a great card to increase credit and gain rewards points through. The customer service isn't the best as most of the representatives take forever to do something as simple as change your billing... (read more)

These guy are robbers; can't talk to them, hard to correct things, take 8 weeks to activate a change or an automate way of paying balance in full. They are all one way. I can't wait to ditch them which I will do in the next two or three weeks and I am sure they will take ages to actually close the account once I have paid it in full. (read more)

Halifax Bank cannot activate the Card for the use intended.
Even purchased a 2 x Hard Drives and Computers on behalf of Halifax Bank to assist them to and enable the loading of the Card with funds. Have been trying for 4 weeks without success. Spent a fortune and do not have the pleasure of spending my money. Image a pensioner purchasing a Computer and Hard Drive for a reputable bank. Amazing is it not?
Furthermore no one at Halifax Bank UK or Spain seems to be interested enough to sort out... (read more)

The Gold Card has a certain prestige factor. Online management of your account is clear and easy to use plus you get reminder e-mails to pay off each month. Some of the insurance benefits can be re-assuring if you travel often. I do not use the card very often as it is not widely accepted. I will very likely change to another American Express credit card (not debit card) to avoid the annual fee. The Platinum Credit Card or the Product Red Credit Card look better bets to me - it just depends... (read more)

I had always considered American Express my advocate in all disputed transactions. Instead, I find that AE is a advocate for the merchant. Don't count on AE as a fair arbitor, and certainly not a consumer advocate.

I have had this card for nearly 18 months now. It costs £100 a year to have one a few months ago it was up graded to a credit card. It has proved useful as when you have no money on you it will always be taken. When in a foreign country at the airport renting a car can be a problem without local currency but an American Express card will cover it. Mine is used mostly for emergencys. (read more)

After spending a lot of money throughout the year and always paying my American Express Gold CREDIT CARD In full before the due date, they were not loyal to me, one of their customers. I purchased an RV on Ebay for my son. I paid through Paypal, which hit my American Express. After bringing home the RV, and it raining, we found massive pouring water coming through the RV into the bed area. After ripping the stapled curtains and wallpaper off the wall, and removing the bed we found black mold... (read more)
