Looks like the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card is having some updates: Up to 3X points 3X points for airfare purchased directly from airlines NEW 2X points at US restaurants 2X points at US gas stations2X points at US supermarkets 1X points on other purchases NEW $100 Airline Fee Credit Select a qualifying airline and then receive up to $100 per calendar year in statement credits when incidental fees, such as baggage fees and other incidentals, are charged by the airline to your Premier Rewards Gold Card Account.* ‡ NEW No Foreign Transaction Fees You will not be charged foreign transaction fees on your Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express.‡ I think Ill still keep my Platinum card. Access to Centurion Lounges and Priority Pass Select, $200 Airline Reimbursement (which I use on Mileage Plus X purchases), and Premier Roadside Assistance are worth the difference in the $255 annual fee. It is nice the Gold card annual fee is waived the first year, and the bonus earning categories are nice. Hopefully the Platinum card sees some bumps in earning potential. I am currently working towards my $3K minimum spend, but after that, I don't think Ill use the card, but Ill keep it for the benefits.
