Are you ready to upgrade your credit card? If you received a letter in the mail from American Express inviting you to apply for their Premier Rewards Gold Card then take advantage of this opportunity to receive a better credit card. There are plenty of benefits associated with the PRG card with the most attractive benefit of receiving 25,000 points after you spend at least $1,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months.
The process for getting accepted is very easy requiring you to visit their online application website at www.applyprg.com. When you visit the site you’ll need to enter your RSVP code that is highlighted on your invite letter and your zip code. The RSVP code is made up of 14 digits. After you finish completing the online application and hit Submit just wait approximately 60 seconds to receive your credit decision. If you’re approved for the card the site will immediately inform you on the screen and for other applications it may take longer to receive a decision. Applicants will need to check back on their status at a later date.
If you’re not familiar with applying online then applicants can also respond to the invitation by mailing in the PRG card application included in their mail offer. The process of finding out if you’re accepted or not via mail is slower in comparison with applying online as you have to allow for mail travel time which slows down the process. This is why it is easier to complete the application online and receive an immediate decision on your application versus waiting longer than 2 weeks for a response in the mail.
What are the benefits of the PRG card? Along with the 25,000 Membership Rewards points members will also receive $0 introductory annual fee for the first year then $175 afterwards. If there’s a need for additional cards members can add up to 5 additional cards with no annual fee. When the card is used 1 point is earned for every eligible dollar spent. Triple points can be earned on airfare tickets purchased directly from the airlines. Double points are earned at US gas stations and supermarkets. All membership points earned do not have an expiration date which is a plus for members.
