PSA: Seems like getting the rose version will update your agreement if you had previous PRG so be careful...
I ordered a rose card and asked when my annual fee would apply and I was told after the first year completes.

American Express Gold Card Now Live (Formerly Premier Reward) Ė $250 Annual Fee
4X points at US restaurants
4X points at US supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases then 1X)
3X points for flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com
1X points on other purchases.

$120 Dining Credit
Enrollment required
Start dining with Gold this month! Earn up to $10 in statement credits monthly when you pay with the Gold Card at Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruthís Chris Steak House and participating Shake Shack locations. This can be an annual savings of up to $120.

The American Express Gold Card now comes in Gold or a limited edition Rose Gold metal only until 01/09/2019.

It looks like the existing Cards was grandfatherd to the new benifits but staying with the old annual fee$195 waved first year.
.
You can request a gold metal card, only if you requeste the rose gold will there be a charge in the agreement, depending on when the account was opened it might stay at $195 for the next year so make sure to ask the details of the agreement.
For myself Iím getting the rose gold and my fee is still staying $195 until 2020

The AF on my Plat just posted and Iím planning on canceling it. I want this card now. I have 5 AMEX credit cards and the Plat charge card. Should I cancel my Plat first, then apply for Gold? Or get Gold first, then cancel Plat?

Downgrade platinum to this. Unless you never had a gold bonus yet.

Quote from the bottom of the email informing me of the new Card benefits. Hopefully this clarifies the AF questions:


With these great new features and benefits, the Gold Card will have an annual fee of $250, and the 2X points at U.S. Gas Stations benefit will be removed on 10/4/19. Your current annual fee won't change until your annual renewal date on or after 4/1/2019.

So the only reason not to change is if you want to keep gas bonus

Itís not an option. PRGís are now Gold automatically. For the next few months itís definitely an upgrade. After that the question is wether New benefits are worth $55 (definitely are in my case).

I had the Amex prg over 2 years ago. I just got a targeted email to apply for the Amex rose with a signup bonus. Will I get the bonus?

Check to see if it has lifetime language or not.

If your question is whether Amex will consider it the same product the answer is yes.
