Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. A few days ago, I was instantly approved for the American Express Gold Card. I was able to add the Gold Card to my Apple Wallet and use it a few times via Apple Pay. I am happy to report that I got my new Gold Card via UPS Next Day Air and I can do an unboxing post for this card. In case you missed my last unboxing post, don’t forget to read Unboxing My US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Letter & Booklet. Here is the front and back of the American Express Gold Card (my referral link). As you can tell, the front of the card is a much darker gold than the back of the card. American Express also wants you to use Contactless Payment (tap & pay feature of the card), since the logo is on both sides of the card. The card is made of metal, similar to the American Express Platinum Cards. Let’s see what else came with my Gold Card in the welcome package.
This white box came inside a UPS Next Day Air Envelope.
Inside the box, there is a purple sleeve that says “Now You’re Golden” which is a nice touch.
Inside the purple sleeve is a colorful envelope (I was so excited to open the envelope that I forgot to take a picture of the envelope before opening it up).
Here are the documents that came inside the envelope.
Here is the front and back of the welcome letter. I find this welcome letter to be pretty boring, there is no mention of the sign up bonus or card benefits.
Here is the front and back of the Cardmember Agreement. You can see details regarding annual fees, foreign transaction fees, and a $25 account reopening fee (never heard of that fee before).
On two other pages of the Cardmember Agreement, I spotted details of cash advance limits. Apparently, different tiers of American Express charge cards have different cash advance limits. I had no idea that the Gold Card had a $6,000 cash advance limit, the Platinum Card had a $8,000 cash advance limit, and what is the Zync Card?
Lastly, here are the account terms and conditions of this card.
