I wrote about the American Express Delta 45,000 mile card, via the CardMatch tool from creditcards.com, but there is also a 50,000 point American Express Premier Rewards Gold card available!

I’ve always thought that the regular Premier Rewards Gold card which offers 25,000 points was a low offer, but 50,000 points after spending $1,000 within 3 months is a much better deal!

The 1st year fee of $175 $195 is waived and the card offers triple points on airfare, and double points on gas and groceries.

The terms say: “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days.”

So you should have been without this card for at least 12 months or shouldn’t have had a personal Zync, Green, Gold, or Platinum card within the last 90 days to get the bonus again.

You should be able to get the bonus on this card if you have the Business Gold card, since you can usually get the bonuses on business and personal cards.

How to see the 50,000 Point Offer

  • Step 1:   Click on this link to see your exclusive offers from creditcards.com
  • Step 2:  Enter your name and address
  • Step 3:  You will see offers including the 50,000 point American Express Premier Rewards Gold & the 45,000 mile Delta offer.  The card application page took a few minutes to load for me.

If you don’t see the offer, try using a different browser, a private browsing session, or clicking on “Clear Results” at the bottom of the screen.  I don’t expect this to last long, so good luck!

How to Use 50,000 Membership Rewards Points

Check out my earlier post on what to do with Membership Rewards points.

1.   $500 Towards Travel.  You could get $500 worth of travel when you redeem points using the “Pay with Points” feature and get 1 cent per point towards air, hotels, and car rentals booked through the Membership Rewards portal.

This is a good use for folks who have little flexibility in their travel plans.

2.   Transfer to Airlines.  You can transfer these points to different airlines such as Delta, British Airways, Singapore Airlines etc.

3.   Gift Cards & Amazon.   You can also redeem your points for gift cards, so 50,000 points will get you $500 in gift cards and about $350 in Amazon.com credits.  I prefer to use my points for travel, but do the math to see what makes sense for you.

I wouldn’t expect this to last very long!

Just received an invitation via snail mail that included this 50k pts for $1k offer. Awesome deal if you ask me.

I’m very torn on keeping this card. Amex refused to give me 25000 MR because I apparently made the mistake of applying while logged in to their website. I may cancel and reapply in a year, but most of my spending is gas and groceries. What level of spending do you estimate makes the PRG worth paying the annual fee?

@Dan C – You’d have to spend a lot because the annual fee is $175.

I just got a snail mail invitation for this card today – 50k pts for $1000 spend, fee waived for the first year.

@Justin Duffy – The current public offer is for only 25,000 points, so that’s all you’ll get.

@Lisa – Good to know. Thanks for sharing!

I just applied for this card 15 minutes ago and was approved, but the offer on the American Express website was only for 25k points… Know of any way to get them to honor the 50k points after I was already approved for the card?

I got this card March 1, 2013 and did $1000 Amazon Payments purchase to qualify for the 50k points bonus which I got. The confusing part is the regular points your earn on purchases. My purchase was rewarded at a rate of 3x giving me 3000 points for the $1000 Amazon Payments purchase. Anyone have any idea why?

@Scott – It looks like they are giving bonus points for online purchases at certain vendors including Amazon. But I don’t know how much longer this will last!
