Update: Refer American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card (MRCC) Review for updated info/review on Rewards card.
American Express India has recently launched a new credit card named: The American Express Membership Rewards Card which is basically a credit card which has the same feature as that of Amex Gold charge card. The major difference is that Membership Rewards card is a Credit card while Gold card is a Charge card. No other new features to talk about as far as i know.
American Express Membership Rewards Credit Card Review:
Amex was sourcing this card since past couple of weeks locally before they actually put the details on web. I see that they have done couple of changes on the website recently. They’ve even added some pages for complimentary lounge access on Amex Plat Travel card this week and notified me as well, all happened this week. So it looks like their website gets updated with new info all in one shot.
Coming to the membership rewards card, i really wonder why Amex is coming up with a common name with features of copy/paste type with dull looks of Gold charge card. I wish they come up with a better design, better name and better features which all means a whole new variant.
However, Amex maynot take such a meaningless decision to release an identical version of Gold charge card without a reason, maybe they’re planning to stop taking applications on Gold card. Lets See!
P.S: Thanks to our reader SriKrsna for helping with the snap of his new Membership Rewards Credit Card.
