The Amex Gold card airline credit isn’t available anymore. The benefit was dropped for both existing cardholders and new applicants as of 2021. However, there are several American Express credit cards that still offer airline credits.
Here’s how the Amex Gold card airline credit worked:
When this benefit was still available, you had to choose a qualifying airline in order for the Amex Gold card airline credit to apply. To view the list of qualifying airlines, you had to log in to the airline fee credit enrollment page from your online account and made your selection from the dropdown menu. You could choose an airline any time during the first year your account was open. After that, you could only select or change airlines each January. If you didn’t change airlines by January 31st, Amex automatically applied the airline fee credit to the previously chosen airline.
The first $100 in eligible charges each year were automatically credited to your account within 2-4 weeks of qualifying purchases being made. Authorized users were eligible for the airline credit, but the entire account was limited to a single $100 credit every year. Credits used to appear on the primary cardholder’s monthly statement as “AMEX Airline Fee Reimbursement.” The Amex Gold card airline credit used to reset every calendar year, but unused credits did not roll over from year to year.
