Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

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.

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!

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.

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

@ih – Your wife can get the card since being an additional cardholder doesn’t prevent you from getting the bonus.

@Wayne – See this calculator —-> http://www.webflyer.com/programs/mileage_converter/

@Pam – You could get another MR card (with the 1st year fee waived) when the fee comes due or transfer the MR to partners. Or get a non-transferable MR card to keep the points “alive” and get a transferable MR card when you want to transfer the points.

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

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 🙂
