When American Express launched its new American Express® Gold Card in October, it also introduced a special, limited-edition rose gold version of the card.
The new design — the regular version of the new Gold Card is a metallic gold — comes in addition to competitive rewards on restaurants and supermarkets in the US, airfare, and more.
You can request the rose gold card if you’re a new applicant, or currently hold AmEx’s previous version of the card, the Premier Rewards Gold.
However, the rose gold version is only available until January 9.
New cardholders can also get a unique, limited-time welcome bonus if they apply before the same date.
Here’s what you need to know about the AmEx Gold Card.
When American Express reintroduced its Gold Card this fall, the card got a fantastic set of improvements to its rewards earning scheme and suite of benefits.
As part of the overhaul, AmEx unveiled a new chic, gold-colored metal version of the card, similar to the Platinum Card’s design. AmEx also introduced a limited-edition rose gold variation of the card — it was so popular that AmEx encountered shipping delays.
Current and new users are able request either the regular or the rose gold card. However, the latter option goes away on January 9.
That means that this is the last chance to get the rose gold version of the card.
Also going away January 9: a unique limited-time bonus for new members. If you don’t have the Gold Card and open one by then, AmEx will “pick up the tip” when you dine out. During the first three months, new card members will get 20% back on US restaurant charges — in the form of a statement credit — up to $100 total.
