As we head into the holiday season and all that holiday shopping, it’s a good time to consider whether your credit cards will be working as hard as they can for you — either earning travel or hotel rewards or cash back while you’re buying gifts, dining out and celebrating.

Take a look at your plastic, and see if it measures up to these great card offers from Amex:

American Express Gold Card

Why we like it: This card racks up 25,000 reward points as a welcome bonus after you spend $2,000 within the first three months, and then it throws in a bunch more perks that can make a big difference in a season when we tend to spend a lot. (By the way, we’re not advocating spending more than you can afford to on the holidays, just getting a card that wrings the most out of every purchase.) Here’s more highlights:

  • Receive 20 percent back on purchases at restaurants in the U.S. — up to a total of $100 as statement credits — within the first three months of membership. (Note: This is a limited-time offer, for card accounts opened by Jan. 9, 2019.)
  • Earn 4 rewards points per dollar spent on the card at U.S. restaurants and grocery stores up to $25,000 a year, and earn a dollar per point after that.
  • Earn 3 rewards points per dollar on flights purchased on this card, when you book through amextravel.com or directly through an airline.
  • Style bonus: This card is available in Rose Gold until Jan. 9.

The Platinum Card from American Express

Why we like it: If you rely heavily on plastic for pleasure or business expenses, this card will rack up a whopping 60,000 membership reward points after you use it for $5,000 in purchases within the first three months.

In addition to the unusually large welcome bonus, this card offers you Uber VIP status and up to $15 a month of free Uber rides throughout the year, plus a $20 bonus in December. (Could be handy after the holiday office party!)
