A New No-Fee Membership Rewards Credit Card

American Express Canada has launched a new Membership Rewards credit card: the American Express Green Card

Here are the features of this new credit card.

Welcome Bonus Offer: 10,000 Membership Rewards points

When you sign up for the American Express Green Card, you could earn a welcome bonus of 10,000 Membership Rewards points after $1,000 in purchases in three months.

These Membership Rewards points are identical to those on the American Express Cobalt® Card and the American Express EdgeMD Corporate Card.

This means that you will be able to transfer those points to hotel partners like Hilton Honors and Marriott Bonvoy. But also to airline programs like Aeroplan or British Airways Executive Club (Avios).

American Express is building on the flexibility of Membership Rewards points earned with this American ExpressTM Green Card:

Use Value
Statement credit for travel purchases 1,000 points = $10
Statement credit for all other purchases 1,000 points = $10
Eligible purchases on Amazon.ca 1,000 points = $10

In our opinion, the best uses of these American Express Membership Rewards points remain:

Marriott Suites Anaheim Exterieur

For example, if you spend $1,000 in three months, you will earn:

  • 1,000 points for your expenses
  • 10,000 welcome bonus points

You can convert these 11,000 Membership Rewards points into 13,200 Marriott Bonvoy points.

it can supplement a Marriott Bonvoy points balance you would have earned with the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card or the American Express Cobalt™ Card!

Membership Rewards Points earning

With the Green Card from American Express, you can earn 1 point for every $1 in purchases. It’s on par with no annual fee credit cards.

If you want to earn more points, you’ll need to consider the American Express Cobalt™ Card. With that Card, you earn:

  • 5 points for every $1 in Card purchases at grocery stores, food delivery services, restaurants and bars and convenience stores
  • 2 points for every $1 spent on travel, transit and gas
  • 1 point for every $1 in Card purchases on everything else

The American Express Cobalt® Card has a monthly fee of $12.99, which is more than offset by a much higher point accumulation, a higher welcome bonus, and numerous insurance benefits.

Conclusion

The Green Card from American Express is a new option to experience the American Express Membership Rewards program without paying an annual fee.

With this no-fee Credit Card, you will also have access to online promotional offers to get points or rebates on your purchases.

And it will be a way to keep Membership Rewards Select points that you might have earned on annual fee cards like the American Express Cobalt™ Card or the American Express Business Edge™ Card, should you ever decide to part with them!

Or a great way to top up your Marriott Bonvoy points balance and get free hotel nights!
