Points to PointsB (thanks!) tweeted me about a 75,000 Point American Express Business Gold charge card after spending $10,000 within 4 months.
The terms say that you have to apply by August 9, 2012 to get the 75,000 point sign up bonus and use Bonus ID A2XF (which I’m assuming is already coded in the application link).
The terms also say that the “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.”
This isn’t my link, and I don’t earn a referral for this link, so please take screen shots before applying for the card.The $175 annual fee is waived for the 1st year and you earn:
3X points on airfare
2X points on advertising, gas, and shipping
1X points on other purchases
American Express seems to be running limited time mega sign-up bonus offers, but with large minimum spending requirements:
There was a 1-day version which offered 50,000 points for the business Gold card after spending $5,000 within 4 months on April 26, 2012.
Another 1-day offer for 50,000 points for the American Express Business Platinum card after spending $10,000 within 3 months on April 6, 2012.
And this same offer was available on February 29, 2012 and June 26 where you could get 75,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $10,000 within 4 months.
Bottom Line: I’ve always thought the regular Business Gold Card which offered NO sign-up bonus to be overrated, but a 75,000 point sign-up bonus definitely makes this card very attractive. Too bad the spending limit is higher than usual.
