Amex Business Rewards Gold – 50,000 Point Bonus (For a Limited Time)

The American Express Business Rewards Gold card is, for a limited time, offering a 50,000 Point bonus when you spend $5,000 in 3 months (application here). The card offers 3X points on airfare, and 2X points on gas, advertising and shipping.

Amex has done a few one-day offers of 75,000 points for the same card, so unless you need 50k Membership Rewards points quickly (tho it won’t be THAT quick), I’d wait til that offer comes back.

The first year is free, and it’s $175 thereafter.

As an everyday business card, I prefer the Ink Bold® Charge Card® Charge Card, as it has a lower annual fee ($95 after the first year), 5X Ultimate Rewards points on office supplies, phone, cable & Internet and 2X on gas & hotel. Plus, as a United guy, I like that the Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred into that program. I’ll keep the card even after the annual fee is due because the 5X bonus on cable/phone/internet alone will make it worth it for me.

  1. Shows how spoiled we have become that a 50k offer is seen as mediocre :) I will add though from my recent experience with Amex that the bonus posts within a couple of days of making the spend rather than having to wait for statement to close. And it is spend not NET spend that counts. So you could get the card, buy a $5k refundable airfare, cancel it couple of days before the statement, then take however it long it normally takes you to make the regular spend. And at least this one is only $5k. Took $10k to get the 75k which these days is a stretch

  2. Hi Phil, I read on one of the blogs that even though Amex posts the points, once the airfare is refunded, Amex will hold on to the bonus points until you actually spend $5k(for 50k points) or just cancel the bonus points if the spending requirement period is over. please confirm because I still have 3 months and $8.5k to spend(75k points for $10k spend) so it’ll be awesome if your actual experience works!!! :) Thanks!
