[Expired] Last Chance For Blue Business Plus 20,000 Point Offer
Update 2: No more working links, if anybody finds one let me know.
Update: Original link stopped working. We found another one. American Express are obviously pulling links so I’d apply right now if you’re at all interested.
I was doing some research for our best credit card bonus page and noticed that affiliate links for the Blue Business Plus card are no longer showing the 20,000 point offer. It’s still possible to get 20,000 points after $3,000 in spend by using this link (non affiliate), but I don’t know how long that link will be around for. Some people have flyers with an 8/25 expiry but these have a higher minimum spend requirement of $5,000. Sometimes these zombie links stay continually even when the affiliate links disappear, but there is no guarantee and American Express could just as easily remove the bonus on that link immediately. You can read our thoughts & F.A.Q about this card here.
This card earns 2x Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on the first $50,000 per year and has no annual fee. I doubt we will see a sign up bonus greater than 20,000 points anytime soon (it’s rare for cards that earn at a high rate on every day purchases to offer a sign up bonus at all). I think this is a strong card to have in your arsenal for two reasons:
- It has no annual fee and earns Membership Rewards points. This means you can keep it open long term giving you the ability to transfer Membership Rewards points to travel partners without paying an annual fee.
- It earns at a rate of 2x Membership Rewards points per $1 spent. That is a strong earning rate for people that value Membership Rewards points at 1¢ or above.
Because of that and the fact that I don’t think the 20,000 point bonus will last I will be adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.
