Great news today for those who love rewards cards, miles, and points.  First, American Express has brought back their referral program where you can potentially earn 5,000 points by referring each of your family and friends to cards like the Starwood Preferred Guest Business Card, American Express Premier Rewards Gold card, and more.

I got an email from Amex about the program last night telling me I would earn 5,000 SPG points for referring people (that ultimately get approved using that link) to the SPG Business card, up to 55,000 points per year.  I logged onto my account and can also refer people to the Premier Rewards Gold card for 5,000 points per approved referral, up to 55,000 points per year.  Both of the offers for these two cards seem to be the standard sign-up bonuses that are currently available publicly, but do be aware that sometimes there are limited time increased offers that may or may not translate to the referral market.

Amex Refer a Friend

I accessed the Amex Premier Rewards Gold referral link by clicking on “Benefits” when logged into my online Amex account for that card, or there was a box on the right-hand side of the screen that also worked.

Amex Refer a Friend AccountThis means if you get an Amex card you will potentially be able to get a points bonus when you refer your partner, parents, etc!  Amex used to have this program, but ended it roughly a year or so ago without notice.  Chase has introduced a similar program fairly recently, so it makes sense that Amex has brought theirs back.  I don’t believe that it works for every person with every card, but it is worth a shot to see if you can make referrals!  You will have to have a specific type of card to potentially make referrals for that card.

Also, if you want to win 70,000 SPG points today then come back come back to this site at 11AM Eastern for the start of a short 6 hour giveaway.  70,000 points is a tremendous number of SPG points, and I’m very excited to partner with American Express for this holiday giveaway!  More details to come at 11AM.

    • Yes, they will and they are valued by SPG at 2.5 cents each for that purpose. That will all be in the post that launches at 11 Eastern, and may cause some to not go for it. Didn’t stop me, but all depends how much value you will get out of the points. 😉

  1. Heather, I remember you missing out last time. Glad you saw it for this huge giveaway!

    Good luck everyone – post with details launches in 20 minutes. Can’t wait to see who wins!
