[Expired] [YMMV] Premier Rewards Gold Card: 30,000 Points For EXISTING Cardholders!

This offer has expired, view the best current credit card bonuses here.

The Offer

Direct link, also check your e-mails. Subject line is ‘<first name>, don’t miss your chance to earn 30,000 extra Membership Rewards(R) points’. There is also another offer for 25,000 points.

  • American Express is offering existing Premier Rewards Gold cardholders a bonus of 30,000 points after $2,000 in spend.
  • Must enroll first and by August 31st, 2017. Spend is required between the time you enroll and October 31st, 2017

The Fine Print

  • To earn 30,000 Membership Rewards® Points, you must first enroll your Card in the offer by August 31, 2017 and then make purchases with your Premier Rewards Gold Card that total $2,000 or more from the time you complete enrollment through October 31, 2017. Purchases may fall outside of this period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). The points will be credited to your Membership Rewards account within 8-12 weeks after the spend requirement is met. Qualifying purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on your Card Account. The following do NOT count as purchases and will not qualify for this offer: fees or interest charges, purchases of traveler’s checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of any cash equivalents. Additional Card Members on your account are not eligible for their own offer. To receive the 30,000 Membership Rewards® points, your Card account must be active, in good standing, and not in default at the time the points are credited to your account. Limit one offer per Card Account. For questions regarding your Card account, please call the number on the back of your Card. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.

Our Verdict

It says that this is because you missed out on the Welcome Bonus, but people that have successfully received the sign up bonus have also received this offer so not sure if this is an IT error at American Express or the wrong marketing language was inserted. Either way if you received the e-mail/are eligible for the bonus you shouldn’t have any trouble getting in despite this wording. We’ve also seen similar offers on other cards, for example:

We have also seen targeted offers for adding authorized users as well.

I was unsuccessful trying to call in for the similar BGR offer, but it’s worth a try.

No go on the call in. she spent several minutes looking on my account. i asked if she could add it manually she said no. i even mentioned my annual fee is coming up and i was thinking of cancelling. So it seems there’s nothing she can do.

Maybe its because i took advantage of the 5,000 points for $500 spend AU adds?

I got the email for my Premiere Gold but it was for 25000 bonus points for spending $2000. Not 30k. 🙁

Thanks Doc. I had not received any email but wanted to try anyway to see if I was targeted. Just Enrolled and received email confirmation as well.
Now I need to spend $2000 in 4 days as I will be travelling overseas for 2-3 months this weekend.

This forum has been very instructive. I cancel this card Premier Rewards Gold Card because they said there were no retention bonuses. You know what ,a week later, I get a new offer for this card for 50k MR points, for $2000 spend. I call Amex and ask them if I’m eligible. They say Yes and I signup for the card the second time . I really hope Amex MR points dont get devauled.

No luck for me either. And my anniversary date is coming up… looks like my PRG will be on the chopping block.

I did not receive an email but I logged in using the direct link above, and the offer appeared on my card. If you didn’t receive an email, still try logging in!

So if I qualified for the 4 AU/5k MR for $500 spend each offer and haven’t reached the spend yet, and qualify for this one as well, it would only be $2k in total spend to get 50k MR points? That is crazy.

My wife just got the PRG card and got 50K for $1K spend. In 2 months, got this email for 25K pts for $2k spend. Signed up right away. Too bad it doesn’t work for the regular Rewards gold card.

the link didn’t work for me as well, but I did receive and successfully signed for the 25K offer for $2k spend. the link for this offer is:

Got the card 8-9 months ago and hit a 75k bonus on it. Didn’t receive a targeted email but got the 30k offer. Assuming should tread lightly on the Simon mall gift cards.
