I applied for the AmEx Rose Gold Card when applications went live on 04 October and got my card today! AmEx underpromised and over delivered again! I received this email on 07 October:
7-10 days! I was bummed, because I wanted to use the card for my NYC trip this Friday. I then got this mysterious shipment notification from UPS yesterday:
Sure enough, 19 hours form the notification I got my card, way beyond my expectations! Here are the required unboxing photos:
and the rose gold card:
I made a new account to make sure I could upgrade it easier to another Platinum. I went ahead and signed up for the $120 dining offer as well as the $100 for American Airlines gift card:
Here are the terms:
New! $120 Dining Credit
To receive this benefit, Card Members must enroll. Only the Basic Card Member or Authorized Account Manager(s) on a U.S. Consumer Gold Card Account can enroll in the benefit. Traditional Gold, Senior Gold, Classic Gold and Ameriprise Gold Cards are not eligible. Eligible purchases must be charged to a Card Member on the enrolled Card Account for the benefit to apply. Purchases by both the Basic Card Member and Additional Card Members on the eligible Card Account are eligible for statement credits. However, each Card Account is eligible for up to a $10 statement credit per month, for a total of $120 per calendar year in statement credits across all Cards on the Account. Participating partners are Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruth’s Chris Steak House and participating Shake Shack locations. Excludes Shake Shack locations in ballparks, stadiums, airports and racetracks. Not valid on gift cards or merchandise purchases. Only valid for transactions completed in the United States of America, and US Territories. Please allow 2-4 weeks after an eligible purchase is charged to your Card Account for statement credit(s) to be posted to the Account. Please call the number on the back of the Card if statement credits have not posted after 4 weeks from the date of purchase. American Express relies on the merchant to process transactions within the same calendar month that you made the purchase in order to apply the $10 monthly statement credit in the month that it was intended. For example, if you make an eligible purchase on the last day of the month, but the merchant doesn’t process that transaction until the next day, then the statement credit would be applied in the following month. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as eligible for the benefit, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not be eligible if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. To be eligible for this benefit, Card Account(s) must not be canceled and not past due at the time of statement credit fulfillment. If a charge for an eligible purchase is included in a Pay Over Time balance on your Card Account, the statement credit associated with that charge may not be applied to that Pay Over Timebalance. Instead, the statement credit may be applied to your Pay In Full balance. For additional information, call the number on the back of your Card.
Here is how it looks on the website:
and the little gauge shows it in the dashboard:
Can’t wait to use it instead of my CSR for dining! The 4x MR points worth 1.5 cents for travel for a sweet 6% cash value vs only 4.5% for CSR for 3x UR. Here is my referral link for 50k points with $3k spend and 20% cash back on dining (up to $100).
I wonder what Chase will do in response to this new card.
