Million Mile Secrets reader LT (thanks!) very kindly shared a link to 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 June 26, 2012 to get the 75,000 point sign up bonus and use Bonus ID A2QQ (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:

As always, I updated the “Bank Rewards Points” tab so that you can always find the best deals.

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.

Darius,

Can you please share your thoughts on should American Express gold rewards points be transffered to Avios at the rate 1:1.4?

Ratio was 1 to 1.5 just vefore that? How often do they give the promotional rates 1 to 1.5?

Thanks.

So I got these points a few months ago and have been debating where to use them... It seems to me that converting them to British airways miles and using them for domestic travel is the way to go. Especially now that they are offering a 40% bonus to redeem these to british airways. I live in Phoenix and taking british airways to europe doesn't seem like that great of a use of miles unless u go in biz class after you use your miles and have to shell out a bunch of hundreds. I can book a flight to Miami that costs about 400 bucks or more for 20k avios or a flight out of lax to hawaii that costs 400 bucks or 25k avios. So after the 40% bonus u need about 14000 amex reward points to get a rt to miami from phoenix, this is a way better deal than converting 25k amex points to delta miles and having to use 25k miles at a minimum for a Domestic trip, or worse delta wants atleast 35 to 40k to go to hawaii... So I plan on going to LAX with my girlfriend and flying to hawaii for super cheap... now if i could only stop obsessing about getting miles and actually go out and use em...

@Joey - If you don't want to pay the fuel surcharges, the best use of BA points are within the US on American Airlines, for travel to South America or to Dublin on Aer Lingus. But you're right - go out there and use those points!

Word of caution. If you link this card to your existing american express card, they charge $10 annual fee. I made a mistake to also add my hubby on that card instead of getting him his own card since $10k in 4 mths was a bit much in spending (since we had another card) and it would help if he could use it as well . Do you think that would affect hubby's ability to get his own business gold card in the future?

I was able to de-link and get fees removed but was told that I would not be able to combine my business gold pts with my old amex membership reward pts.

@Pam - Being added an authorized user shouldn't prevent him from getting the sign-up bonus when he applies for the card as well.

It's June 26th (8:55PM EST) and the offer has been pulled. I was just about to apply, I'd been holding off trying to decide if I'd be able to meet the spend or not. Darn.

Darius,

Follow up on my previous post. I applied using my other business and TIN (all other information the same as far as address and income) and got denied for already having the card from my April 2012 sign up. Called the number on the rejection email and talked to a CSR for about 10 minutes explaining that i run two businesses and wanted two different cards to keep expenses separated. After 9 frustrating minutes she passed my application and request on to another department and i got a follow up email today with an approval. I offered to send in my different bank account/insurance/TIN number but I guess they didnt need it to approve me. thanks for the link.
