Remember the AMEX Butterfly Card I wrote about almost a couple of years ago? It was only available to American Express Gold Card members and was supposed to be more convenient than the standard card since it could fold in half and be stored in a metal keychain.
Well it seems the card didn’t exactly catch on like American Express had hoped. Reader ‘Ajax’ who left a comment on my original post just received a letter from AMEX saying the Butterfly Card program would be canceled on March 31. Since the card actually used a different number than the user’s standard American Express Gold Card, ditching the Butterfly version should be relatively painless. Unless of course you’ve become really attached to it and have already started an online petition to bring it back.
