American Express Business Gold recently updated their public offer, but I was poking around my Amex account this morning when I received a pop up for an increased 80k offer. I am very tempted to pull the trigger, but I wanted to give you all a heads up to check your accounts first because some people are receiving 90k offers! Here’s a look at my offer which gives 80k Membership Rewards after hitting $10k in minimum spend in the first 3 months of cardmembership. The biggest difference is that this offer does NOT come with the $300 in statement credits for qualifying purchases. Note that an application is still required and you can see if you’re targeted here.
If you’d like to read about all the perks and benefits, please see our full review which goes into detail. This post is just to make people aware that they could be targeted.
The pop up I received while checking for Amex Offers – no mention of the $300 statement credits
And then it leads to this page
I would highly suggest reading the full review because it goes into far greater detail, but the Amex Business Gold is a workhorse for your wallet. There is a list of categories and the 2 categories from that list where you spend most in a month will receive 4x points on those purchases. The yearly cap is $150k or 450k bonus points. That is the biggest reason to get this card…points on points.
