American Express India Refreshes its Credit Card Designs

American Specific India is beautifying their bank card designs they usually’ve began with the work slowly since early 2024. From what I see, that is extra of a world transfer through which most playing cards would now look comparable the world over.

Amex has been steadily implementing it in India up to now few months. From what I perceive, they’re doing it in batches for sure playing cards

  • Batch 1: Plat/Gold cost & Company Playing cards
  • Batch 2: Plat Journey Card
  • Batch 3: Reserve (Most likely)
  • Batch 4: MRCC/Sensible Earn (Most likely)

If this goes as I assume, ultimately they’d have redesigned nearly all playing cards by yr finish. Right here’s a fast have a look at among the playing cards in its up to date design alongside the previous design, so you recognize what modified:

Batch 1

Amex Platinum Cost Card

Amex platinum Charge Card Design Change

The adjustments on Platinum Cost Card are refined nevertheless it now appears crisp, easy, clear & elegant. The border has turn into smaller and that makes it really feel like an even bigger card while you maintain it in hand.

To not point out that the title “Platinum” now goes to the again of the cardboard, which is kind of a shock.

Amex Gold Cost Card

Amex gold Charge Card Design Change

The adjustments on gold cost card are extra evident and it now appears pretty much as good as plat cost however in gold. The gold color is barely lighter than the previous design.

Personally, the most effective factor that I like concerning the new gold cost card is that the cardboard numbers on the again are “greater” and in stunning font. The easy embossing of numbers is even higher than the one on plat cost.

Talking of gold cost card design, I hope India sometime will get the “rose gold” design in future. I’m fairly constructive that we’ll get one quickly (possibly 2025 or later), however let’s see when!

Company Playing cards

Amex has 3 company playing cards in India: Plat, Gold, Inexperienced. Whereas Plat & gold playing cards are much like the non-public playing cards with phrase “company” on it, the inexperienced card is the brand new & noteworthy design change and it appears stunning for positive.

Batch 2

Amex Plat Journey

Amex Platinum Journey Card bought a whole refresh and appears lot higher than the way it was. In the event you look nearer, it’s really the identical design as on the prevailing Smartearn card however in silver/gray color.

That mentioned, it appears like Amex is getting away with “platinum” within the journey card, apparent as a result of individuals usually get confused with the platinum cost card. So doubtless they’ll now name it as “journey card”

Batch 3

Reserve (Prediction)

Whereas that is pending and certain go stay by Might 1st week together with the change in advantages, I’m assuming it is going to be identical as Journey card with “Reserve” on it or possibly a darker model of the journey card as beneath:

Batch 4

Amex MRCC (Prediction)

Of all of the playing cards that Amex has, MRCC is maybe the one card that truly wants a design refresh because it’s one of many “ugliest” of all of the designs that I do know of and positively not an Amex customary.

Whereas that is additionally nonetheless pending, it’s in all probability queued for the final batch. If I predict it proper, they could deliver the yellow/golden tint design of journey card to MRCC, like beneath.

Amex SmartEarn (Prediction)

Whereas the present design on Smartearn Card is respectable, the blue tint is simply too darkish. Moderately, some lighter variations like beneath as seen in different nations could be nice to have.

Card Replacements

In the event you like the brand new designs that has gone stay on Batch 1 & 2, merely open your Amex app and request for alternative at freed from cost. Whereas changing, the cardboard quantity doesn’t change however the CVV’s will change. In the event you want the cardboard numbers to vary, it’s possible you’ll name help and request for a similar as properly.

And when you don’t want to vary the cardboard numbers/cvv and nonetheless want to see the brand new design, it’s possible you’ll apply for the “account card” out of your amex account. It’s principally a supplementary card by yourself title which cardholders can use to segregate bills.

I took the account card for plat cost as a result of my cvv’s are fancy and I don’t want to free them.


As you may know, design is among the issue that I contemplate whereas reviewing bank cards and there are at occasions after I get playing cards only for the design (not a suggestion for others!).

Whereas design doesn’t reward you, it by some means provides you a very good really feel whereas taking that card out every time. I don’t get that “really feel good” issue on HDFC Infinia, so I can say that, lol.

And of all playing cards with Amex, Amex Gold Cost used to present an excellent really feel good issue every-time I used to make use of it again in time when Amex was restrictive in issuance. Not solely the design is sweet, but additionally Retailers used to surprise from which nation I bought the cardboard and with title “American” on it, they principally ask, “Are you from America?” 😀

So it’s good to see that Amex is refreshing their playing cards to have an attractive uniform design throughout the globe.

That mentioned, what’s your tackle the brand new Amex bank card designs that’s already stay? Be happy to share your ideas within the feedback beneath.
