75,000 Membership Rewards Points with American Express Business Gold Card – Apply by September 12, 2012 [Expired]

The American Express Business Gold card has another 1-day offer for 75,000 points after spending $10,000 within 4 months.

This is much better than the 50,000 point offer for spending $5,000 within 3 months (which gives me a referral), provided you can meet the extra spending requirement.

If you did apply for the 50,000 point American Express Business Gold card, it doesn’t hurt to ask to try to get matched to the better offer, but I doubt American Express will match.  The spending requirements are different and American Express isn’t keen to match offers any more.

The terms say that you have to apply by September 12, 2012 to get the 75,000 point sign up bonus and use Bonus ID A3CD (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 because some readers have had issues with getting previous 75,000 offers honored.  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

There is a  2.7% foreign transaction fee, so it isn’t the best card to use outside the US.

  1. Hi-

    The T&C’s say not eligible if you had a gold or platinum business cad in the last year.
    If my wife was an additional user on MY business Gold card during the last year does that mean she cannot get this bonus if she applies for her OWN business gold card?

    Or since it would be her own she could get the bonus?
    Let me know ASAP as I only have the rest of the day to do this.

    Thanks.

  2. @IH- no problem to do it…

  3. Can these points be transferred to AA or Marriott?

  4. I got this card last month and was charged a $40 + $10 linkage fee to my existing blue card for membership rewards. I wasn’t sure I wanted that so I got that reversed. I know these MR are more valuable than my blue card’s MR. What options would I have at the end of this year when I want to cancel the card so as not to incur the annual fee and have 85k MR from this gold card. I don’t want to devalue these by moving them to the Blue MR. Any thoughts? Thank you 🙂

  5. @ih – my understanding is that your wife is eligible to apply to get her own card.

  6. @Wayne – yes @ Marriott but not directly – you have to jump through some hoops and convert to other programs first.

  7. Can I conmbine both my own & my wifes membership reards account in to one? or transfer similar to SPG? They are both Business gold cards.

    thanks.

  8. In regards to the question from @ih…is that the case for all cards or just the AmEx being discussed here…(if I have my wife as an additional card user, she could still apply down the road and get a bonus as a “new” card-user for her own card)?

    I had been wondering that in general and can’t recall seeing it discussed. THANKS!
