F.A.Q’s About New American Express Business Gold Card
American Express just launched a revamp version of the Business Gold Rewards card, the new card is simply called ‘Business Gold Card’. Some readers have some questions about this new card, so I thought I’d try to answer some to the best of my knowledge.
I’m An Existing Cardholder, Do I Get Access To The 4x Categories?
American Express is not automatically ‘upgrading’ current cardholders to this new card with the 4x categories. Existing cardholders can call in and request an upgrade to the new card with the 4x, American Express will prorate the annual fee (e.g the difference of $120 or $10 per month).
Does This Mean I Can Get Another Sign Up Bonus?
I think for sign up bonus purposes this will be considered the same as the old card, meaning you won’t be eligible for the sign up bonus if you’ve had the card before. Currently this card is offering a sign up bonus of 1 year free of G Suite basic for 3 users and up to 1 year of ZipRecruiter Standard so it’s not exactly exciting.
That being said when American Express revamped the Premier Rewards Gold card existing customers were automatically upgraded to the new card, this also happened with the Hilton Ascend. In this case cardholders aren’t being automatically upgraded, so there is a slight chance it might be considered a different product.
I Can No Longer Refer People From My Business Gold Card, How Do I Fix This?
You can’t. Links generated from the business gold rewards card are no longer working and there isn’t anything you can do at this stage.
