Editor's Review

Whenever you spend on gas, groceries, and travel, the Gold Rewards Card gives you twice the points for every dollar used. To encourage usage, American Express® includes a 25,000-point welcome bonus once you charge $1,500 to your card within the first three months of membership. You can even add one free additional cardholder to collect points faster.

A standout feature is that you can transfer your points to Aeroplan or other frequent flyer programs to get three times the reward value. This card also lets you capitalize on their fixed points travel program where you can redeem your points to book flights to anywhere in the world. There are other flight- and hotel-related benefits you can secure by using the Gold Rewards Card, plus there are seven travel insurance coverages to ensure you have a safe trip, including 15 days of travel medical insurance. You can enjoy front-line access to various entertainment experiences, receive car rental benefits and even charge eligible purchases to your card before redeeming your points as a statement credit.

If you can afford the $150 annual fee, then there's good reason to consider this American Express offering.
