The American Express Green Card annual fee is $150. Amex Green is the least expensive of the Amex hybrid card offers, and its rewards and benefits can make it well worth the cost for frequent travelers. The card’s annual fee used to be slightly lower in the past, but Amex added extra perks to make up for the increased cost.
Cardholders earn 3 points per $1 spent on travel, transit and dining purchases and 1 point per $1 on all other purchases. There’s also a one-time bonus of 45,000 points for spending $2,000 in the first 6 months after account opening. Additionally, the Amex Green Card no longer charges a foreign transaction fee.
Even though the American Express Green Card annual fee is higher than in years past, you’ll now have up to $200 in annual statement credits that will easily cover the cost of the card, if you travel. The Clear credit provides $100 toward an annual Clear membership, which streamlines security clearances at more than 50 airports, stadiums, and arenas throughout the U.S. And the LoungeBuddy credit allows you to apply up to $100 to your airport lounge purchases with the LoungeBuddy app every year.
