See An American Express Business Bonus You Like? Call For It (20,000 Blue Business Plus, 75,000 Business Gold Rewards & 100,000 Platinum)

Originally posted on 02/21/18. Reposting on 03/16/18 as it looks like there is a better number to call for the BRG offer and I don’t think enough people knew that calling for the 20,000 Blue Business Plus offer was working so well.

For awhile it’s been possible to get the following increased bonuses on American Express business cards:

A few readers have recently confirmed that the same method is working on other business cards. For example they have been offered 20,000 points on the Blue Business Plus. The method isn’t exactly difficult:

  1. Call 1-800-971-6736
  2. Choose option 1, “apply for a new card”
  3. You’ll be redirected to a customer service representative.
  4. Ask for the offer
  5. Hope for the best

There is no guarantee this will work and if it doesn’t then please just move onto the next deal. Looks like there is actually a direct number for the Business Gold Rewards offer now, try calling 8663433695 instead. Thanks to reddit user teal man.

I got the 20,000 points on the Blue Business Plus with $3000 spend about 3 weeks ago by calling in. Was told that they can only give me an offer if they see one and they do not see any. Hung up and called again a few minutes later and the second CSR asked me for any previous RSVP codes for AMEX business cards. I had none and told him so. He looked back and told me ok I can give you that offer.

How, just by calling?

Do they have the once in a lifetime language?

Same as it ever was.

I got this to work last fall for a Delta Business Gold offer that I had not been targeted for online. Told the rep I had seen it but did not have my RSVP code. The lifetime language WAS attached to that particular offer and was read to me as part of the terms.

I’m not nervous about calling I’m nervous about being able to spend $10,000 in 3 months. I don’t MS, but I do like to open bank accounts with cards. Just not ready to open that many BMO accounts. Wish I had some big spending to do!

Go for the BB+ if you don’t have it already. No annual fee and you can transfer all your MR to this card.

MR points go into an MR account with each MR card feeding it. There is no transfers to make, this isn’t chase.

Rox is talking about a free way to keep MR points alive. One needs a MR-earning card to do that, and preferably, it would come with no AF.

Do you have to have a real business to get this card?

Rox

No.

If you have an existing business card with Amex, can you “shortcut” by saying the business is the same, even if it’s not a real business? Or if you can’t shortcut, can you provide same info: your name as business name, your address as business address, your phone as business phone, sole prop, 0 (or whatever the minimum is) for years in business, employees, and business income?

Thanks, Will. I called was offered both American Express Business Gold 75K after 10K spend and BB+ 20K points after 3K. Took BB+ offer. It went to pending but got approved in a day. I applied for BB+ in July 2017 and was rejected.

This worked for me in 2014 with the 75K Biz Gold. I called, they kept telling me 50k but I kept the conversation going and they eventually gave me 75k!

This was successful for me. She looked up my address, name, etc. Came up with a 50K after $10k then additional 25k after another $10k. I told her I had the 100k offer but didn’t have the RSVP code. She came back with the 100k offer after $10k in 3 months. Asked a few questions about the business (how much we spend on flights, hotels, restaurants, etc. per year). I then applied.

Scored the Blue Biz with 20k points and $3k min spend! First try. Approved and card is being expedited. Combined with the Schwab Platinum this is 2.5% cash back on everyday spend. Will be my go to instead of CSR + FU for a while until I burn down some UR points. Up to 7 Amex cards currently 🙂 Thanks as always, DoC!

Awesome tip! I was able to apply for the BB+ with 20k MR with $3k spend in 3 months. Not instantly approved, but was approved the next day!

Hunter

Called in and got BB+ with 20K MR for $3k spend in 3 months. However, was not able to get a decision over phone – said it would come in mail. Anyone have any experience with this? I’m worried that my income is close to my total open credit (because of authorized user cards…)

Hunter

Checked status online today (1 day after) and was approved.

Just did the call and after the long survey, the CSR said there were “a lot of cards”.. offered me BGR 75000MR $10k spend in 3 months, but the “calculator” recommended SimplyCash Plus $300 cash back after $3k spend in 3 months. I asked for any other offers (it sounded like there were more!) and that’s where I found the desired Blue Business Plus 20000MR $3k spend in 3 months.
