The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • American Express is offering $500 back in the form of statement credits by purchasing qualifying services with FedEx using your American Express Business Gold Card within the first 3 months of Card membership.

Offer valid through November 6, 2019.


Card Details

  • $295 annual fee, not waived first year
  • Card earns 4x points on the two categories your business spends the most each billing cycle, from the following list (up to $150,000 in combined purchases each calendar year):
    • U.S. purchases at restaurants
    • Airfare purchased directly from airlines
    • U.S. purchases for advertising in select media
    • U.S. purchases at gas stations
    • U.S. purchases for shipping
    • U.S. computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers
  • 25% points back after you book a flight with pay with points

Our Verdict

When they revamped the card, they put out a signup bonus of 1 year free of G Suite basic for 3 users and up to 1 year of ZipRecruiter Standard. More recently, the card became available via referral with a 50,000 Membership Rewards points bonus with $5,000 in spend (plus the referrer gets a 10-20k point bonus).

I don’t see this new bonus of $500 from FedEx being palatable to almost anyone. The upside here is the low spend requirement since you only need to spend the $500 at FedEx to get the bonus which is nice for someone who has expenses there. Still, the Membership Rewards offer via referral is much more attractive.

Wow! And I thought ~$150 bonuses from smaller banks were weak. Way to go, Amex
