[YMMV] American Express Business Gold 180,000-190,000 Points Signup Bonus

Update 6/16/22: There are reports of being able to get this offer by calling into Amex at 855-531-3491; turn down their initial signup offer, request specifically the 180k offer, and apply over the phone. YMMV. Hat tip to reader Johnathan M Another update: reader Daniel got the same offer at the above phone number, along with an additional bonus 10,000 for spending an additional $1,000. That’s 190,000 total for $21,000 spend total. Note, these offers are subject to regular lifetime limits and pop-ups. Also available now is 130,000 with a lower $10,000 spend requirement – that offer is available via referral as well.

Seems like the public links and referral links for the 130k for 10k spend offer have dried up. However, I called the above offer today and was offered the 130k + 10k employee for 10k spend offer. Can either apply over the phone or have them email you an offer link. Took about an hour for the email to finally come through for me. Approved instantly though and received card number instantly.

Called today, was only offered 130K + 10K for 10K spend. Which I will try to do thru a referral instead.

Isn’t there a fee for employee cards? And did you have to provide a ssn for the employee?

Are Amex lifetime limits on business cards per person or per business? For ex, can I get multiple biz gold bonuses for different LLCs, or only one because I’m still the individual holding the Amex account?
