The Amex Green card is worth it for frequent travelers with good credit or better (a credit score of 700+) who buy airport lounge day passes and prefer expedited airport security. Customers with enough dining expenses to help offset the card’s $150 annual fee may also find the Amex Green card worth applying for.
The Amex Green card offers new cardmembers 45,000 points for spending $2,000 in the first 6 months. And it also earns substantial ongoing rewards: 3 points per $1 at restaurants (including takeout and delivery), 3 points per $1 on travel, 1 point per $1 on all other purchases. Aside from these rewards, what makes the Amex Green card particularly worthwhile is annual statement credits, up to pre-set amounts, toward CLEAR memberships and airport lounge day passes, purchased through LoungeBuddy. By making the most of these travel-friendly perks, the Amex Green card’s annual fee will easily pay for itself.
However, the card most likely won’t be worth it if you’re unable to pay the balance in full and on time every month. The interest you’ll pay on the balance will cut into the card’s overall value.
