1. 50,000 Membership Rewards Points. The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN which used to offer zero points is now offering 50,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $5,000 within 3 months.
This isn’t as good as some of the 1-day offers for 75,000 Membership Rewards points, but which had a higher ($10,000) minimum spending requirement.
I’ll share my thoughts on this offer next week, but I wouldn’t apply for this card unless I had a specific trip in mind and had researched how American Express Membership Rewards points were going to help me get there.
American Express Membership Rewards points do have value, but they aren’t as easy to use as Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
2. Business Class to Europe for ~$1,500. MileValue explains how to buy TACA airlines miles and then redeem for award flights on Star Alliance airlines.
You can’t take part in this offer unless you had a TACA account set up before September 3, 2012, but register now for next time!
I wouldn’t stockpile miles to use later, since the redemption rates could increase. But this is a good trick for trips which you will book soon.
