I am about to cross back over the pond to come home to my terrific two-year-old, but I wanted to quickly mention that Amex is running one of their “today only” 75,000 Membership Reward point sign-up offers for the Business Gold Rewards card. This is the third time they have done this so far in 2012 (that I know of), so it may come around again this year…or it may not. Who knows, but it is around today.
The bonus does require $10,000 in spending on the card in four months, so it won’t be within reach for everyone, but it is a very good deal for that card. I sadly got in on this card when it was just 50,000 Membership Rewards points a few months ago. The terms state 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.” Frankly, I think 12 months is quite generous between churns, but I don’t like that according to the terms you can’t hold a Platinum card and get the bonus for the Gold card. Who knows how that is enforced in practice though. If you have had experience with that, I’d love to hear it!
There are so many great offers right now that it really is a great time to do a churn and get card(s) from different banks (just remember to not bite off more than you can handle)! If I didn’t already have this card I would be pulling the trigger on it today.
For more details on this offer head to MileValue or The Points Guy. This is not one of my affiliate links, but it is an offer that has proved reliable in the past. Just take screen shots to be on the safe side!
