Alternative To 75,000 Business Gold Rewards Offer (Referral)
In case you missed it American Express will be making some major changes to the business gold rewards card. One of those changes includes increasing the annual fee to $295 and making it so it’s no longer waived first year, plus adding some benefits. Because of that I think it makes sense to apply for the card now if you’re eligible. The best offer is currently 75,000 points after $10,000 in spend. There are two issues with this offer:
- It requires calling in and there is no guarantee they will offer it to you
- It requires $10,000 in spend
One alternative is either referring yourself to this card or getting a friend to refer you. Whoever refers you will receive up to 15,000 points and you’ll get the standard 50,000 points after $5,000 in spend within three months. That means you could potentially get 65,000 points after only $5,000 in spend. We talk more about universal referrals here. Please do not share your referral links in the comments below.
When the Premier Rewards Gold card was refreshed it was possible to get an offer of 50,000 points after $2,000 in spend with the annual fee waived before the officially relaunch. After the relaunch the best offer is 50,000 + $100 without the annual fee waived. That’s why I’d recommend signing up now, but it’s also possible the sign up bonus will get significantly better after the refresh on the business card (my guess is no).
