[Targeted] Business Gold Rewards 80,000 Point Offer

The Offer

Targeted offer sent via snail mail

  • American Express is offering a bonus of up to 80,000 Membership Rewards points on the Business Gold Rewards card. Bonus is broken down as follows:
    • 50,000 points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months
    • 15,000 points after an additional $2,500 in spend within the first three month. Can be done up to twice

Card Details

  • Annual fee is waived the first year; second year and on there is an annual fee of $175.
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 3X points on one category of your choice from the list below:
      • Airfare purchased directly from airlines
      • U.S. purchases for advertising in select media
      • U.S. purchases at gas stations
      • U.S. purchases for shipping
      • U.S. computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers
    • 2X points on the 4 remaining categories
    • 1X points on other purchases
  • I believe the once per lifetime rule applies to this card, would be surprised if it didn’t.

Our Verdict

You can get a 75,000 bonus after $10,000 in spend by calling in and there is another targeted bonus for 75,000 points after $5,000 in spend. This bonus is marginally better than the first and then probably worse than the second (5,000 points for an extra $5,000 in spend). Bonus break down is somewhat interesting, but bonus itself isn’t that ground breaking.

Yes, you can use her RSVP. Don’t cancel until you hit the 12 month mark so you don’t get accused of gaming. There’s no AF the first year so no harm in keeping it.

I have received an AMEX BGR business targetted mailer with an RSVP number in the mail for one business and applied using that RSVP number by putting in the information for another business and received the bonus.

I just signed up for the 50k offer and got approved. Is there any way to match to the 75k or 80k offer?

How do you get AMEX to mail you these offers?
