I just got an Amex Blue for Business. 10x dining here I come!
I wrote earlier this week that a great deal was ending on the Amex Blue for Business card. No Annual fee, 10k bonus points after first purchase, and 10x on restaurants for 6 months with a $2k max. It won’t go against my 5/24 and is an easy 30k points. I’ve never carried an American Express branded card that didn’t earn the fully transferable Membership Rewards so this is going to be a fun journey to blog about and investigate. I absolutely love my Amex Business Platinum card, and this will be a great additional to the family of cards that I have with them. The offer ends tomorrow, Feb 1st, which is why I just got an Amex Blue for Business today!
Miles is excited to entertain some clients and earn 10x points!
Just to reiterate…
Doesn’t go against 5/24 – Amex biz cards don’t count
- Let’s be honest…that’s YUGE
10x Restaurants for the first 6mos
- It’s capped at $2k but that’s an easy 20,000 points
No Annual Fee
This is a big one.
I have an Amex Business Platinum. I can co-mingle the points for higher value thru transfer.
If you don’t carry a Membership Reward earning card you can go here and check out what you can get with these points. But, honestly, if you aren’t going to use them in conjunction with a card that can transfer to a partner…I’d pass-a-dena. ( that’s what we say in LA when we’re going to pass and by we I mean me…and Miles 😉 ) We like flexible currency the most, and if we’re going to throw spend on a card, we want the most bang for our bucks. So there’s no confusion:
We want to sip champagne, wear noise canceling headphones, request turn-down service, crack open our amenity kits after we shower at 35k feet, and sleep in a fully lie-flat position. We need transfer partners for that =) In essence…we want our points to make us feel like this
As a reminder…Amex transfer partners:
