Earlier this week I received a rather strange call from Amex about my Business Gold credit card. The representative was very nice but she asked me a ton of questions about my spending habits to identify ways for me to earn more points. While I’m well aware of the benefits of the card, I’ve barely used it since I received the 75,000 point sign-up bonus. I was at work so I had to hang up quickly, but there didn’t seem to be a point to this phone call.

I’m not sure if the two are related but last night I received an email with the following offer:

  • Spend $5,000 and receive 20,000 Membership Rewards points
  • Spend an additional $5,000 and receive an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points

All purchases must be completed by 10/15/2018. You can think about this as earning an additional 4x points on the dollar for spending the first $5,000 and 2x extra points per dollar for the additional $5,000. You’ll likely have received an email if you are targeted but check here to see if you’re eligible.

The Amex Platinum Business is offering a slightly better deal.

Business Rewards Gold Offer

  • Spend $5,000 and receive 25,000 Membership Rewards points
  • Spend an additional $5,000 and receive an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points

All purchases must be completed by 10/15/2018. The bonus structure for this deal is like getting an additional 5x points for the first $5,000 and 2x extra points for the second $5,000. Click here to see if you’re eligible.

I think this might be targeted at people who haven’t been using the card much. Looks like it’s time for me to getting spending. We’re buying our wedding rings today so that should definitely help!
