Today is the last day to sign up for one of the best ever offers for the Amex Business Gold Card. If you apply by the end of today, you can earn 70,000 Membership Rewards after you spend $10,000 in the first three months.
And in addition to that you can get $150 back on both U.S. advertising in select media and U.S. shipping, for a total of up to $300 in statement credits on eligible purchases within the first 3 months. Application link (referral).
This is one of the best public offers ever available for this card. The bonus increased from 35,000 points to 70,000 points so it is one of the extremely rare opportunities to jump on a card that has doubled its bonus.
If you are not aware, the Business Gold Card is one of the most lucrative cards for earning points via spend. It earns 4X Membership Rewards on the 2 categories where you spent the most each billing cycle.
So you will always be able to optimize your earnings based on your spending patterns. That is a cool feature that I don’t think this card gets enough credit for. Here are the categories that you are eligible to earn bonus points on:
- Airfare purchased directly from airlines
- U.S. purchases for advertising in select media (online, TV, radio)
- U.S. purchases made directly from select technology providers of computer hardware, software, and cloud solutions
- U.S. purchases at gas stations
- U.S. purchases at restaurants
- U.S. purchases for shipping
You do need to take note that the 4X points applies to the first $150,000 in combined purchases from these 2 categories each calendar year. After you max out that limit, you will only be earning one point per dollar spent.
If you run lots of ads for your business this is definitely one of — if not the best card to get. Application link (referral).
