This is one of our favourite Credit Cards – not only is it raining rewards, you also get the fabulous 18 karat and 24 karat Rewards redemption program. Statement credit is great too and let's you get instant gratification for the points you earn across almost all transactions. Lastly, the American Express® Gold Card just looks amazingly good and has great flaunt value – go for it!

  PROS

  • Points don't expire – The Points you earn on the American Express Membership Rewards® Programme are yours forever.

  • In case of big purchases, its important to call Amex earlier, so that your charge will get authorized

Great card for movie lovers

2 months ago | Naresh Swami Thirunagari
You can get 2 complimentary movie tickets worth Rs.500 every month through bookmyshow. We like that you get 2 complimentary visits to domestic airport lounges per quarter.

Interest rate is very high

I request everyone don't take this card. The interest rate is very high. And after getting this card you will get too much of calls for taking personal loan. Which is irritating.

I am using this card from almost eight months. The problem i am facing with this card is that there are very few options and offers available with this card. Also, this card is acceptable only on selected merchants and cannot be used universally.
