Good news! The sign-up bonus for the The Business Gold Rewards card from American Express has doubled!
You can now earn 50,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points after meeting minimum spending requirements. The normal offer is for 25,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points, so this is a great deal!
It’s especially nice because getting this card will NOT hurt your chances of being approved for any Chase cards you want.
You Can Transfer AMEX Membership Rewards Points to Air Canada to Fly to Milan, Italy. And See the Beautiful Architecture of the Duomo Like Emily Did!
I’ll share more about this offer. And give you ideas about how to use the sign-up bonus for Big Travel!
