My current Amex Gold Credit card reaches it's anniversary in early Jan 2020. Assuming I stick to my plan of cancelling it to avoid the £140 annual fee after the first year, that means I have no way of earning Membership Rewards. I'll be transferring my existing MR balance before closure. Not a huge issue as I now have the BA Premium Plus card to collect as many Avios as possible on all our spending, and while I'm building the Avios pot that's not a problem. But I know many of you experts value the Membership Rewards due to their versatility. So, I wanted to ask what other people do. Indeed do you try to earn some MR as well as Avios and Virgin MIles ? If so how ? And why ?
