    I hope you saw my previous posts, got the card!! Anyway I know you mentioned something about free internet service for being an Amex member and other benefits. Does this apply to the green card holders as well, or is it for other products from them??

    SOME Benefits

    YUP MOM!

    Free internet service - speeds up to DSL
    All the usual CARD benefits
    Express Cash
    WEB Access for everything - even AMEX GiftChecks

    I also got:
    Baggage Protection - I think $4.95 each time I charge
    tickets to AMEX

    There are many other benefits - which you'll read about.
    You get to pick and choose - I chose everything except Additional Card.

    MOM - the thing that is great about AMEX - all the benefits ARE REAL.

    You will be delighted - yes all these things work as soon as you snap in your new AMEX Card number.

    Hi Mom,

    I know Dog will answer later, but for now...
    You can use the internet service if you have Green (I do!). The only problem I had was trying to install the software on both my desktop and laptop - I tried several times before I gave up. Maybe you can only have one copy?

    Thanks I can't wait to get the card and welcome package and sign up, then I can dump AOL. Thanks again for the info.

    Mom.....by the way...

    I have an un-opened copy of the AMEXOnline CD that I sent away for. I could send it to you if you like? I think you have to wait until you get your card number before you use it because it asks for it (just to make sure that you are a member, that's all). Let me know...it beats waiting for 2 weeks for it to arrive when you can have it ASAP????

    Thanks, I will email you with my address. Yes I will just download AOL buddy, most of my family uses it as well.

    Re: AMEX Green

    Do you only get free dialup internet access with AMEX Green or free DSL? Do you pay a small fee for either service or do you need to enroll in Membership Rewards to get the free internet? Free DSL would be an absolutely spectacular benefit for cardmembers.

    Re: AMEX Green

    They accept up to T1 speeds. They won't buy you a DSL line or modem.

    Re: AMEX Green


    If you buy the DSL modem separately, can you use their high speed service? DSL is available in my area through my phone company so is it possible for me to buy the modem separately and use their service to stay connected?

    Re: AMEX Green

    If NY is like California - I think it is - you cannot obtain
    an IP address on your telephone number UNLESS you buy the local telephone company's internet service also. Thats where they get you.

    I have to have Pacific Bell Internet to get the IP address which is processed against my phone line, which I get from Pacbell.

    Theoretically,amexol.net could assign you an IP address, but their real overall intent is to allow free dialup access.

    Also, if amexol.net DID get you an IP address, would the phone company work with them to get you free access - probably not. :)

    What's nice is that with my DSL, I hop to amexol.net at no charge and use that FAST underutilized network.!!!!!

    Re: AMEX Green - $300K month

    Mom - everything and EVERY BENEFIT applies to the AMEX Personal Card (Green Card).
    It is NOT a low end AMEX card! It has cult status. It is hard to get - unless your credit is FINE, OR you HAVE MONEY! It is prestigious as hell! After 7 months, I can snap $5K every two weeks with no hassle - of course I could not afford it but I could do it if necessary! :)

    I remember our AMEX friend Jason posting he had seen people charge $300K A MONTH on the Green Card. Think of 300K MR points every month!

    To many people of wealth, the Green Card at $55 + $40 for Membership Rewards is an excellent value to them.
    Why would anyone pay $20 more for Gold or a ridiculous
    $300 a yr for the same thing their Green Card does :)

    $1000 for black? Tear up that preapproved, invited,
    AMEX very best customer status, Centurion Card offer.
    The Black Card color clashes with the Coach wallet!

    A bit of sarcasm thank you very much!
