Travel Essentials: 2 Ways To Save More with American Express GOLD
Chinese New Year is around the corner and there are a lot of things to shop for. While many are still waiting for their bonuses, some might have already started to shop. The news of food prices shot up around the world will not help consumers at all. In fact, most stalls in Kuala Lumpur have already increased their food prices by 30 sen to 50 sen. In short, it’s a tough time now. People tend to spend more than they earns, so for those who loves to spend using their credit card, try this.
There are 2 ways to save more with American Express GOLD.
