American Express Gold Collection

One of the best ways to get higher value out of American Express Membership Rewards is by accumulating points and redeeming for Gold Collection.

This Gold Collection redemption system is enabled only if you’ve either Amex Gold Charge Card or the Amex Membership Rewards Card.

However, you may link any other Amex credit cards to one of these gold cards and enjoy the benefit, except the Platinum Travel Credit Card.

Here are the available Gold Collection options at the moment, redeemable for 18,000 MR points & 24,000 MR points.

    Wait, if we apply for platinum travel then we can’t hold either mrcc or the gold charge card?

    Or just there points won’t be combined?

    1. Siddharth Post author

      Can be applied, it’s just that the points can’t be combined into on MR account.

        I hold both amex mrcc ans plat travel card.. Surprising in amex app.. They don’t show different points for mrcc earned points or plat travel earned points… They only show total.. So it seems that can be combined.. Just want to confirm that…

          Generally not allowed to combine these 2 Cards. But for some reason this happens rarely. Have heard of one such instance before.

            Even in my case, points are shown as combined for both plat travel & mrcc. To confirm, I went to redeem points, even there I can redeem all points from gold collection even though some of points are earned from plat travel.

    I am using card past 7 years earlier you used to give cash credit of 10k against 18k points that you have stopped. Increased bonus points transaction from 1000 to 1500. Your charges are high while adding to Paytm wallet. your card is not acceptable in most of outlets.

    One thing your customer care service are fantastic.

    Surprisingly, this is more than Travel card, which gives 0.5 which they claim is the best 🙂

    Surprisingly, Gold collection redemption is giving more value than Travel card (Taj Redemption), which gives 0.5 which they claim is the best 🙂

    Tanishq redemption is restricted to diamond jewellery as per Amex website.

    Hello Sid, everyone!

    I have a question regarding the Taj vouchers.
    I am told if we use these vouchers, then we will not be eligible for any other special discounted prices that Taj offers of Neu (or TIC) members – Is this true??

  7. Nithin

    Yes. That’s true as per my experience. These vouchers are redeemed against full price/listed price of the room. So effective reward rate is much lesser.

    Just used at Taj Nashik , they removed 10% member discount which i got at the time of booking.
