[American Express] Amex Business Gold 60k membership rewards welcome bonus - highest ever
- American Express
As an alternative to the business platinum (thread here: american-express-amex-business-platinum ... l-2460471/)
There's also a record high welcome bonus on the Amex Business Gold card. The public offer is 50k after spending $5k in 3 months, or 60k if referred by a current business platinum or gold card holder.
The platinum offer requires 10k spend, which is challenging for many, so the gold card may be a better option.
For those not familiar with membership rewards, they're flexible reward points that can be used for statement credits, travel through American Express travel, or they can be transferred to a number of frequent traveller programs such as Aeroplan, Avios, Marriott Bonvoy, etc. Sure, we can't travel right now but travel will return, and this is a great time to be building your points balance for when it does return! And, this is a great offer to get a significant amount of points in a single bonus.
Despite not being able to use some the travel perks these cards carry, Amex has done a great job of providing value on their cards during the pandemic through statement credit offers and bonuses. I got more value out of my business platinum over the last year than I paid in annual fees.
