[EXPIRED] The sky isn’t falling, but the 75,000 point offer for the American Express Business Gold card is back! The offer requires a higher spending requirement this time – $10,000 within the first 4 months of card membership. It’s the highest bonus American Express offers for this card, so if you missed out on the last round and need the points, you’re in luck. With big sign-up bonuses deemed unsustainable by the banks, it makes sense to get in on these offers when they come along.
The card comes with an annual fee of $175, which is waived the first year. The card pays out the following amounts:
- 3 points per $1 on airfare purchased directly from the airline
- 2 points per $1 on advertising, shipping, and gas
- 1 point per $1 on all other purchases
A great perk of Membership Rewards points is the ability to transfer points to their travel partners. Membership Rewards frequently runs promotions, offering bonus points for transfers. See this post by The Points Guy for a history of Membership Rewards points transfer bonuses.
It’s best to have a credit score above 700 when applying for cards like the American Express Business Gold.

Did you miss out or take advantage of the previous 75k promo? Are you going to apply for the card this time around?
