Last week American Express published an amazing 75,000 Membership Rewards point sign-up bonus on the Business Gold Rewards Card® from American Express OPEN, which lasted for less than 24 hours. In retrospect it was probably an error, given how quickly they pulled it and that we had never seen a public 75,000 point sign-up bonus with such a low minimum spend before.
Well, the 75,000 point offer is back through May 17, though with a $10,000 minimum spend requirement within four months.
I tend to think a $5,000 minimum spend within three months is manageable for just about anyone given that you can easily generate $1,000 of spend per month through Amazon Payments, meaning you only otherwise have to spend $2,000.
$10,000 is tougher, though shouldn’t be too tough even for the average person with a bit of creative spend. If you can complete the minimum spend I’d definitely jump on this offer, because I doubt we’ll see another 75,000 point bonus with only a $5,000 minimum spend anytime soon (while we’ll likely see this offer being promoted for a limited time again in the future). Anecdotally I find the Business Gold Rewards Card to be one of the easiest business credit cards ot be approved for as well.
