There’s not a good reason to hold the American Express Green Card. The American Express Everyday card is much better with no annual fee, 2x Membership Rewards points at supermarkets, and a 20% points bonus if you complete 20 transactions per month. The Green card might be a decent option if want to get the points from a sign-up bonus, but the bonus is typically quite low and American Express has been cracking down on rewards abuse.
