30000 aeroplan points no fee amex aeroplan gold card through a refferal

On the Amex Site...... Amex is offering 30000 Aeroplan points for the American Express Aeroplan Gold Card, if you are refered by someone . CLICK ON Rewards then Refer a friend, then click on the amex aeroplan gold card to see the offer ....NO FEE First Year

Refer yourself or cut a deal with one of these FTers who offer refferals..
Highest bidder gets your application
You win they win

If you don't feel like going through one of the Fters, you can still get 25000 Aeroplan miles if you apply through the Amex Site. NO FEE First year...

A gentle reminder of the rules regarding AMEX referrals as they are only permitted within this thread located in the Credit Cards Programs forum.

Please do not not post referral application links in the body of any FlyerTalk post as they will be removed and the only place to include referral links is within a member's signature.

Thanks,

Correction, it's only 20000 Aeroplan via AMEX website (AMEX Gold is the one with the new 25000 AMEX MR offer)

https://www.americanexpress.com/ca/e...ilter=aeroplan
Earn 20,000 Bonus Aeroplan®*Miles after you spend $500 in your first three months of Card membership1 Earn 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $1 in Card purchases up to $10,0002 Accelerate your earn rate to 1.25 Aeroplan Miles for every additional $1 in Card purchases over $10,000 annually3 Earn Aeroplan Miles faster with two free Supplementary Cards – a $100 value ($50 for each additional Supplementary Cards)4 You’ll also earn additional miles at Aeroplan Partners when you also provide your Aeroplan Number or present your Aeroplan14

Fine print for AP Gold to refer another AP Gold << not a referral link
https://www.americanexpress.com/cana...roPlanGoldCard
As the Basic Cardmember, refer a friend and you4 could earn a referral bonus of 10,000 Aeroplan Miles for each approved referral5.

Nice deal, the Mrs. and I have referred each other Amex Aeroplan Gold so now we're waiting in anticipation of receiving the cards.

Amex sure has stepped it up... I guess they couldn't stay out of the fray while TD and CIBC fight it out for AE customers?

Has anyone had luck with a self-referral on this card using a card number from another product?

Cross-product self-referrals have not been working recently. There are reports of unsuccessful attempts in the Amex forum.

Yours worked probably because you already have cards in both product lines. But if you have, for example, only charge card, like Amex Gold, and then self-refer to Amex Aeroplan Gold, then you are likely not going to get the referral bonus, because you had not had a pre-existing Aeroplan card to deposit bonus to. At least that's what is reported in the Amex forum.

And what if I want to legitimately refer a friend to an Amex Aeroplan Gold and I only gave an Amex Gold MR? 1:1 conversion to MR perhaps? Maybe I should just ask Amex...

If you only have AMEX Gold (charge card accumulating AMEX MR), you will NOT get your 10K Aeroplan referral bonus, nor 10K AMEX MR

and HOPE that your friend would still get 30K Aeroplan miles despite it being a non-valid referral

Just the kind of deal I would have jumped on two years—you know, back when AP miles had value.

Is the referral bonus 10k for both applicant and referrer? That would mean the applicant would indeed get 30k points once the card is approved.

The current deal is 30k aeroplans for the aeroplanplus gold card for the new customer ($500 spend in 90days), first year free, and 10k bonus for referrer. it's only 20k aeroplans if you signup without a referral.

It's a decent card I've been happy to hold for a while and this is a GREAT new signup offer.

Tempting...

What are you thoughts on AMEX Gold vs. AP Gold?

25k vs. 30k welcome bonus but AMEX gives double points on travel, gas, groceries, and drugstore purchases. Travel insurance benefits for first card look slightly better. Not sure how MR points compare with AP points. (Useful? Easy to convert?) Anything else to consider?

No, only the referrer gets the referral bonus (10K Aeroplan in this case)
The applicant gets 30K if using referral link to sign up, otherwise 20K via AMEX website or GCR ($40 cashback)

AMEX Gold - 25000 AMEX MR after $500 spending, FYF. No referral needed
AMEX AeroplanPlus Gold - 30000 Aeroplan (via Referral) after $500 spending, FYF

Get both, since they are first year free
One probably earns more on Gold instead, but they're great for churning now

AMEX MR is more flexible (no expiry, transfers to more partners, like Avios or Aeroplan)
