The American Express® Green Card (Canada), previously known as the AMEX Choice Card, is a no-annual fee Membership Rewards credit card that earns points at a flat rate of 1 point per $1 spent across all purchases.

It is a solid option if you're looking to build points, but do not need the travel benefits of the The Platinum Card® and American Express® Gold Rewards Card and don't spend enough to justify the annual fee of the American Express Cobalt™ Card.
