American Express is out with a brand new, and frankly outstanding, referral offer on its American Express Business Gold card, or Amex Biz Gold. This is a card that I once carried, but was targeted for a great upgrade offer, and have kept an Amex Biz Platinum ever since. I’m starting to think that it may make sense for me to carry an Amex Biz Gold again. With the ability to earn 4x points on some attractive categories, I’m going to have to really consider whether I keep my Amex Biz Plat, or revert back to this bad boy. Regardless, you can leave your Amex Biz Gold referrals on this post, or if you’re in the market to pick one up, use our link to do so. We’re all friends here.
Here’s how it works with our site:
Referral offers is how I make upwards of 500k points a year, but it’s also how I can help you out. Since I’m constantly trying to use points on my travel for the site, I cycle through my referrals first, and usually very quickly I max out. I then work my friends and family through the site, and finally, I start adding your links that you leave below. I leave them up for a few weeks and then cycle in another one. You can also leave referrals for the Amex Green, Amex Aspire, Amex Platinum, and Amex Gold on their dedicated posts where I perform the same procedure.
Here’s a breakdown of the 75k Referral. It’s tiered and requires a total of $10k spend in 3 months
- Earn 50k Membership Rewards after $5k spend in 3 months
- Earn an additional 25k after another $5k spend, total $10k, in the same 3 month time period
- Offer expires 2/5/2020
Let’s take a look at the benefits of the Amex Business Gold
You can earn 4x points in any 2 of the following categories. You’ll earn those 4x on the two categories you spend the most, so there’s no selecting.
- Airfare purchased directly from the airline
- US purchases for advertising in select media (online, tv, radio )
- US purchases from select technology providers of computer hardware, software, and cloud stations
- US purchases at gas stations
- US purchases at restaurants
- US purchases for shipping
- Total capped at $150k spend
25% points back
You’ll get a 25% refund on airline purchases made with points if you purchase first or business class or with your selected airline.
- Capped at 250k points back
- Biz Flight costs $1k
- Use 100k Membership Rewards
- Get 25k refunded
- Net cost 75k
This is 10% less than you’d get refunded if you carry an Amex Biz Platinum.
No foreign Transaction fees and Access to The Hotel Collection
Here are a few of the ways I’ve put my American Express Membership Rewards to great use.
For 47.5k transferred to Virgin you can experience their new Upper Class which I just flew a couple of weeks ago.
One of the best possible uses…70k transferred to Aeroplan for Lufthansa First Class redemption.
Or even use British Airways Avios ( transfer bonuses as high as 40% in the past ) to redeem on great products like Japan Airlines First Class
