Great news if you have some epic Black Friday spending planned this November – Amex has just relaunched its American Express® Green Card. The card is ideal for anyone wanting to get rewarded for trying new restaurants, their purchases and travelling.
With the new and improved Amex Green Card, holders can earn 3X Membership Rewards points on travel, global restaurants and transit. And if you’re unsure what these rewards mean, you can convert them into gift cards, travel perks or even as cash to pay card charges. Meaning you’re literally getting rewarded for spending money!
With this relaunched credit card comes two welcome bonuses – the first being that you can earn a solid 30,000 Membership Reward points after you spend $2,000 on purchases on your card within the first three months. The second is that until January 15, 2020 you can receive up to $100 statement credit towards any eligible purchase of suitcases and other travel goodies from Away Luggage.
Plus, this card is promising to be more socially responsible than others – American Express says that the card is made from 70% recycled materials.

Do I really need a credit card?
Well it completely depends on your finances and circumstances. If you are a frequent traveller, or you want to get rewarded for your purchases especially with the the prospect of Black Friday deals coming up, then a credit card could be a great idea – if, of course, you’re planning to pay off your balance immediately each month.
But a credit card is not a good idea if you’re trying to buy something that’s beyond your current budget. If you’re using a credit card as the only way to afford your purchase then it’s probably a bad idea. That could get you in loads of debt that you can’t clear and potentially harsh interest rates to make things even worse.
