You cannot get the American Express Business Gold card 50k bonus anymore. The card now offers a 70,000 points bonus. To earn it, you need to spend $10,000 on eligible purchases during your first 3 months of card membership.
Almost anything you can charge to your card counts as an eligible purchase, but there are exceptions. For example, fees, interest, prepaid cards, travelers’ checks and gift cards don’t count toward the spending requirement. And there are a few more rules in the fine print that you should be aware of before you get the card.
Here’s how to earn the American Express Business Gold card 70,000 points bonus:
- You need to spend $10,000 in the first 3 months after you open your account.
- Purchases made by additional card members count toward the spending requirement.
- The American Express Business Gold card bonus points will be credited to your account 8-12 weeks after you hit the spending threshold.
- Your account must be open and in good standing when it’s time for Amex to credit the points to your account.
You can use your American Express Business Gold card 70,000 points bonus to buy gift cards, book flights on the Amex website, or pay for New York City taxis at a rate of 1 cent per point. You can also donate points to charity at the same rate. There are other redemption options, like booking hotels on the Amex travel site and shopping with points on Amazon, but they aren’t as lucrative.
