Gold Card from American Express for Ameriprise Financial – 25,000 Point Sign Up Bonus

Reposting because American Express has discontinued the standard gold card and might do the same for this card (haven’t heard anything about this).

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Receive a sign up bonus of 25,000 points after $1,000 in spend within the first three months of card membership on the Gold Card from American Express for Ameriprise Financial.

Card Details

  • Annual fee of $160 is waived for the first year
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 2x on flights booked directly with airlines
    • 2x on U.S. restaurants
    • 1x on all other purchases
  • Access to The Hotel Collection

Our Verdict

This is the standard bonus on this card (never seen a higher bonus), not many people seemed to know about it in this reddit thread – so I thought I’d post. Ameriprise also offer a Platinum card with no annual fee for the first year but that bonus sometimes goes up to 25,000 so I’d personally wait for that. Being an Ameriprise client doesn’t seem to actually be enforced. Before applying make sure you read through these 19 things everybody should know about American Express credit cards.

  1. Robert says:

    Can I get a regular gold card also?

  2. Ethan says:

    Presumably this is a separate offer from the other Amex Gold Card? As in, one can have both and get both sign-up bonuses?

  3. Ernie says:

    Does anyone know if I’ve already had the Gold Card (NOT from Ameriprise Financial) and closed it last year, if I would be eligible for the signup bonus on this card?

  4. jason says:

    are there any other gold/plat cards etc outside of ameriprise, schwab, mercedes benz and the non-affiliate Amex offers?

  5. Gary says:

    You should probably clarify that the Ameriprise platinum has the regular platinum AF; it’s just waived the first year.

    Nice of you to post this when you saw people weren’t aware of it. You’re really in touch with and responsive to people’s needs.

  6. Jay says:

    Yeah, thnx for posting. I had no idea this existed. 25k pts for a super easy min spend requirement and no first year annual fee is a very good offer. $375 in gift cards at a Plenti partner, a domestic roundtrip, or a one-way to Europe for what, for most people, is probably a grand total of 30-60 mins of effort. That’s a good deal.

  7. Preacher says:

    Yeah, but does this Ameriprise version card also give the $100/calendar year travel credit, like the regular Gold card does?

  8. James says:

    Sorry for the newbie question – with this card you can transfer the points to airline partners just like the amex platinum right?

    I am about to cancel the platinum card, wanted to use this card to keep my points active and transfer to an airline partner when I have time to fly.

    • Chris says:

      James – This is a perfect fit for you then… Then you later on get the PRG ($1k Spend, 50K points) – and end with the 25K Amex (EveryDay?0 that has no Annual Fee.

    • sirtheta says:

      Any MR card will do to keep your MR program account active, and — with rare exceptions (Blue for Business, for instance) — all allow transferring to travel partners. Many people nab an EveryDay credit card for precisely this purpose (at the 25k signup bonus) since it has no annual fee.

  9. boridi says:

    25,000 points posted a day after the charge that put me over $1000 posted.

  10. Carl says:

    Dead already.

  11. Denny Sito says:

    No pre-set spending limit does not mean unlimited spending. Purchasing power adjusts with your use of the Card, your payment history, credit record and financial resources known to us, and other factors. Add Additional Cards to your account for an introductory annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $175 for up to 3 Additional Platinum Cards.

  12. Guy Bucktastik says:

    Just got auto approved.

  13. Paul says:

    Is this a credit or charge card?

  14. MontyFC says:

    Is there a benefit of this card beside the 25K sign-up bonus (I already have PRG)?

  15. Rahul says:

    so will count on personal credit report for chase 5/24 rule right?

  16. Mark O says:

    Pending for the wife 🙁

  17. Kennedy says:

    Just got auto approved at like 30/24. No Ameriprise relationship.

  18. Dan says:

    Do I need to have an account with Ameriprise?

  19. Jojo says:

    Just autoapproved for me and the wife. 2 for 2.

  20. Pat S says:

    Can I use these points for gift cards or statement balance? If so, what is that worth (I’m sure its not as good as transferring to airline, but I don’t use any of those airlines). Thanks

  21. MarcoPolo says:

    Can I fly to Hawaii from east coast round-trip with 25,000 points?

  22. Geoff says:

    got a 14 day message (have like 35/24) anybody know what 14 days usually means?

  23. Roman S says:

    Just applied for my wife and got instant approval.
    Going to do the same for myself in the next couple of days with Delta 60k via Dummy Booking to get $100 off the delta purchase.
    Don’t leave these points on the table.

  24. mangoceviche says:

    Totally forgot about this card, so thanks for the reminder.
    instant approval and was given option to get account number instantly, which I agreed to.

  25. Jon says:

    Thanks for the reminder on this one!

    Auto approved at 745 FICO and 18/24 — love the points for the spend and no AF.

  26. E Dantes says:

    I miss the days when you could just gobble up all these easy points without a care in the world. Now you have to ask yourself, “Is it worth the inquiry and tacking another number on your /24?”

    (Sighs…closes out tab before temptation gets too great)

    • AlwaysFlying says:

      The only Chase 5/24 card I still keep opened is United because my 200k+ points will need the extra XN hop when the time comes. SW has been substituted by FlexPerk points and travel credits. I’m gamed out of 5/24 until the next recession hits and terms change yet am still flying high 🙂

      • E Dantes says:

        Yeah, I may follow what you’re doing and just forget 5/24. Only thing is, I started getting rejected lately for too many inquiries, so I think I still need to wait a couple more months before considering this regardless.

        Glad you were approved and got the 25k MR. Congrats!!

  27. AlwaysFlying says:

    I hopped on the bandwagon of extra 25k MR. MR is my most important and very useful transfer currency. Thank you.

  28. Eric says:

    For those insta-approved for the Ameriprise Gold, did you receive an approval email? I got to the approved splash screen, but not email yet.

  29. anthonyjh21 says:

    Applied, went pending, checked status the next day and was approved. No emails or other notices sent. I’m way over 5/24.

  30. Joe says:

    Anyone know if Amex would overnight this card for no fee?
