    Is this worth the $450/annual fee? I've seen 75,000 bonus for Gold Cards.

    I don't think it's worth it, especially in light of the recent 50K and 100K offers for the same cards.

    Thanks, Lotso. Do you have the links to the offer 100K? Also, I realize I should have posted this under the Credit Card links so if it can be moved by the moderator that would be great!

    I'm not sure you would be able to get the 100K offer. It was targeted. And last week people who had signed up under 50K offer were e-mailing Amex to ask for the additional 50K points after stories of success were posted on pointsguy and frugaltraveller. After getting inundanted with requests, Amex started requiring people to fax in proof that they had received the targeted offer.
