[Disclosure: Emily & I get a referral for the 50,000 points Membership Rewards card, but not for the better offer of 75,000 Membership Rewards points.]
The Deal Mommy! (thanks!) tweeted me about a 75,000 Point American Express Business Gold charge card after spending $10,000 within 4 months.
This is better than my affiliate link which offers 50,000 Membership Rewards points, but has a lower $5,000 within 3 months minimum spending requirement.
The terms say that you have to apply by October 24, 2012 (today) to get the 75,000 point sign up bonus and use Bonus ID A3K4 (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, June 26 & August 8 where you could get 75,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $10,000 within 4 months.
Bottom Line: This offer has 25,000 more points than my affiliate link, but requires $5,000 more in minimum spending.
