Update 1/2/23: This incredible deal is slated to end soon on January 3rd, 2023.
The American Express business checking account will increase the signup bonus on their business checking account to 60,000 points, starting tomorrow December 1st. All other requirements are the same. Offer valid through January 3, 2023.
The bonus had been 20k and now 30k, and will increase on December 1st to 60k.
We’ll update the original post with the offer, just didn’t want it to get lost since it’s such an amazing offer for anyone with a business so I’m posting this brief post separately.
The requirements are pretty easy with $5,000 held for 60 days and also 10 transactions. I’d guess there’ll be a Form 1099-INT for $600 for those who get the bonus. (?) Seems like they approve sole proprietorships with a driver license, according to some reports. It’s a soft pull.
Full details in the original post.
Hat tip to Frequentmiler
P1 opened mid 12/2022, 5k in 5 days, bonus posted early 3/2023
P2 opened late 12/2022, 5k in early 1/2023, bonus posted mid 3/2023

P3 never had Amex, opened Amex gold 2 days before biz checking and had no issue getting the biz checking.
All of the 10x transactions requirement were met via trial deposit from other institutions. Link 3 and good to go.
Took just under two weeks for bonus to post. Don’t worry about leaving the funds in until the points show up “to be safe.” As soon as the tracker says you’ve met the criteria, you can pull the money out.

Hmmm, I seem to have 3x 30k points pending from this (i.e. 90k total).
Do you have the Biz Plat?
I do! Why is that relevant?
There were some targeted offers for getting an extra 30k for business platinum customers for opening this account. Hope the same happens to me.
I have it and only received 60k.

Did they take the tracker away? Trying to confirm all 3 tasks are complete for this. Still haven’t gotten my bonus…
The tracker is still there for me as of 3/13/23. I also met all 3 tasks, but still haven’t gotten my bonus.
Thx. I recall it only showing up for me on a desktop and not mobile but I can’t fine it now on a desktop either. To get to it, you just go to the dashboard and then navigate to your bank account, right?
