American Express is offering the following bonus on the new Business Gold card when applying via a referral link:

  • Earn 50,000 points when you spend $5,000 on eligible purchases with the American Express Business Gold Card within the first 3 months of Card Membership.
  • Earn an additional 25,000 points after you spend an extra $5,000 on eligible purchases on the Card within that same time period.

Offer valid through February 5, 2020.

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, then they changed the public offer to $500 FedEx credit, now the public offer is 35k/$5k.

At some point in middle, the card became available via referral with a 50,000 Membership Rewards points bonus with $5,000 in spend. Now, they’ve added an additional 25,000 points when you do an additional $5,000 in spend for a total 75k bonus. Another major advantage of the referral offer is that the referrer (your friend) will also get a nice bonus of up to 20,000 points, depending which card they refer from.

Overall, this is a terrific offer which could even make sense just for the purpose of the bonus without keeping long term.  If you have any questions about American Express, read this post first.

what if you had the card but didn’t get a bonus (I downgraded to it)., are you eligible for bonus?

No. that was a dumb move. never upgrade or downgrade to a card you never got a bonus for.

Geez, I had to go digging to find a referral, but I got lucky. So if anyone needs one just shoot me a comment cause the comments are closed on the other thread.

If I use plastiq to pay rent with this card, will I get 4x points? This would be the category that I spend the most on

Frank

Plastiq is not on the listed categories so no

I didn’t know about the referral link and opened the account just a few days ago with “a 50,000 Membership Rewards points bonus with $5,000 in spend” offer. I wish I could have “an additional 25,000 points when you do an additional $5,000 in spend for a total 75k bonus.” as well.

Since it just a few days ago that I opened the account, if I call the Amex customer service, can they apply the referral welcome bonus offer above? Anyone with experience?

Does getting the business bonus affect the ability to get the personal bonus?
