Amex Gold fights back with Boxed.com, and worldwide dining 4X

As expected, Amex publicly announced today that the Amex Gold Card now offers 4X points at restaurants worldwide rather than only in the US.  They also threw in another enhancement…  Remember that $120 per year dining credit where you earned up to $10 per month back for purchases at certain restaurants and food delivery services?  Now they’ve added Boxed.com to the list of available merchants for this credit.  This should make the dining credit much…

In that post, the final step I mentioned was matching to Hilton Diamond. Hilton has had a status match program (actually a status match challenge of sorts) going for quite some time, but until yesterday, it had been advertising a match through March of 2020.…
