"I’m excited to share that I’m partnering with @AmericanExpress to relaunch the iconic #AmexGreen Card. You earn 3X points on travel, including transit (aka subway, taxis, rideshares) and restaurants worldwide. Perfect for all you adventurous spirits out there who are ready to explore the benefits of having a Card that supports your lifestyle," Lili Reinhart, an Amex Ambassador, posted on her Instagram.
