Amex Gold Card to Lose $100 Airline Fee Credit

American Express cardholders can usually take advantage of extra perks on their credit cards, especially on premium cards with higher fees. Now there are credits for delivery apps, streaming, wireless service etc.. But the annual Airline Fee Credit is the one that has been around for a long time and available on several cards.

The Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card has a $250 airline fee credit, the personal and business Platinum cards offer $200 and the Amex Gold Card has a $100 airline fee credit.

But, beginning in January 2022, that Airline Fee Credit will be removed from the Amex Gold Card. Both new and existing customers will be able to use the Gold Card credit through the end of 2021. There are no changes announced for the other Amex cards that offer this credit as of now.

The news comes from TPG. An Amex spokesperson gave the following explanation:

As we are always looking to evolve our Card benefits and services to best support our Card Members’ needs, the Airline Fee Credit on the American Express Gold Card will no longer be available at the end of 2021. Current Gold Card Members will be able to continue to use the Airline Fee Credit through December 31, 2021. We will continue to evolve and enhance our Card benefits and services to provide relevant and rich value to our Card Members in the areas they care about most, so stay tuned!


American Express is removing a $100 credit from the Gold card and promising to “evolve and enhance” the card’s benefits in the future. We’ll have to wait and see what those benefits might be, but for now lets file this under the devaluation column.

Even without the credit though, the card is a great option to have in your wallet. You can get a 60K points welcome bonus and up to 4X on purchases.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.

  1. It’s being replaced with a jelly of the month club membership in accordance with their relevant and rich value of American Express cardholders… because Amex cares
