75,000 Bonus Points on AMEX Business Gold Ends Today (Feb 29)

I just saw this 75,000 point offer on the American Express Business Gold Rewards card (this isn't an affiliate link which pays me a commission) after spending $10,000 within 4 months while browsing online.

However, the terms indicate that the offer is valid only for applications received by February 29, 2012 and doesn't specify in which timezone the offer ends.

This is much better than the regular offer of ZERO points.

I posted it on my blog along with a screenshot of the offer (in case it is needed later on).

Great find, thanks for posting!

The minimum spend is a bit high for me, and I'm waiting for the Capital One Venture miles matching promo to come back March 11th. But it's a great opportunity for someone!

Thanks for posting this. I just saw the 75K offer when I signed into my yahoo email account and thought I would check FT.

Has there ever been an offer for a BUSINESS rewards card that has been greater than 75K? (non-targeted, especially). Or is this as good as it gets? I know there have been some 100K offers from AMEX, but have those all been personal cards and targeted?

Thanks in advance....

I don't remember a better offer.
I grabbed this last time it came around,
also for one day only...

AMEX was excellent about posting the points promptly.

The only difference I can see is that the last time around you had 5 months to meet the $10,000 spend.

Very Nice!!!

Is it wise to choose the fast track app by saying you are a card (non-biz) member already?

Nevermind, approved! Thank you Daraius!!!!

If you have an existing amex(s) - they ask you to put in your card number to speed up the application process. If you do this - does anyone know if they might not do a hard pull - as they already have your info?

I don't think that is linked to a hard pull. That is just to fill in your details (address etc). When you put in the SSN, they can always check against their database at that time. I believe a new app will force a new credit check irrespective or earlier accounts?

SM Membership Rewards as soon as you can (today) citing your disappointment as a "valued" and "long-term customer" and ask them to match the 25k difference as a good-will gesture. Yes, those are the words they love hearing.
