American Express has just sent out a letter to card members of the Business Gold Rewards Card which reads in part as follows:
Starting September 16, 2013, you can earn 2x points on US purchases made directly from select computer hardware, software, and cloud computing providers.
No action is required on our part. It is just a new feature of the card.
Per the website about the changes, it appears as if the following retailers will be included for the 2x points:
Effective September 16th 2013, you will earn additional rewards ONLY when you purchase directly from a U.S. location of a company on this list of select computer hardware, software, and cloud computing providers that accept the Card:
- Rack Space
- Sage Software
- Tiger Direct
I’m especially excited about being able to earn double Membership Rewards points at Apple stores, given that they’re not a retailer that participates in many online shopping portals.
It’s a card I have and definitely recommend getting, given that Membership Rewards points are the primary way I fund my travel in Singapore Airlines first and suites class.
