Edit: The 75k Amex Business Gold offer has expired.
And boom goes the dynamite!
Sorry about the delay in posting about the most recent Amex offer – and thanks for the emails! Just in case there are any other Noobs out there that haven’t heard, here is my opinion on the 75,000 Business Gold offer (now that I have access to WiFi)!
This 75,000 “Limited Time Offer” for the Business Gold Rewards card is a winner. I like it a lot! I recently signed up for the Business Gold card when the offer was 50,000.
Dont forget the details, the T&C’s state: “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product or any other Business Gold, Green or Platinum Card® account within the last 12 months.”
If you have the personal Platinum or Premier Rewards Gold card within the last 12 months you are still eligible for the Business Gold Rewards card.
Also, you must apply by January 28th! If you’re planning an app party – plan accordingly.
The Business Gold card from Amex also has a couple of category bonuses. You will receive 3x points on airfare, and 2x points on gas, and advertising. Neato.
This is a really solid offer if you’re okay with the minimum spend requirements. I’ve been known to stockpile a few Membership Rewards points myself, and I prefer to transfer mine out when there’s a bonus to do so. Even though I’m tempted to start using them for “suites” flights on Singapore Airlines. Well, I’ll let you know after I test out the suites later this week.
[Disclosure: I do not get a referral for this card, but do not let that stop you from applying]
