Is so funny, based on my natural spending, I thought no way I'd hit 50k, so this would basically be a goto card all year.
Well, based on how I love this card, and taxes... its April.... and now I have to figure out what t odo when I hit 50k soon...
This isn't even first world problems... its something beyond that.

Do you have any other cards that earn 2X points in specific categories, such as Everyday or Premier Rewards Gold? Are you married or in a similar relationship where your partner could open the same card, and order an employee card for you?

My wife has the card too... lregarding the additional employee card... does that have its own 50k limit separate from the primary? Just wondering where you were going with that.

No, it's $50,000 per account, not per physical card.

Is this actually targeted, or public?

On my end it seems to be available to all

The 20,000 point offer is targeted. If the link works, you are eligible.

I think it is public. I tried incognito on multiple browsers and they all showed 20000 offer.
I used this link: https://www.americanexpress.com/us/c...us/index1.html

Understood, but click [APPLY] button and see if you are prompted to login.

Anyone tried to apply for a 2nd one under a different business and see if that earns 2X also?

If you get the card, you get 2x. That's a feature of the card, not a signup bonus feature.

So they only question is whether someone can get 2 of these cards and get the full 50k/yr cap on each card.

10k offer to 9/26/18. For $3k spend in the first 3 months.

How does the application process compare to the Business Gold Rewards Amex? I heard that they want to see business income and so on?

Without a link we can only guess that you may be referring to this, which applies to all American Express business cards:

Amex (USA) adds new requirement for minimum $1,000 annual Business Revenue

Spouse received an "invitation" with a "reservation" number for 20k on this card. Is this the same as pre-approval? Credit is fine ~840 but got a DL biz card a few months back. Amex seems to be getting pickier about giving bonuses, so I thought I'd ask if any issues with this sequence. Has been a plat holder for about 6 years.

Mailers are typically marketing, not any indication of credit-worthiness.

Business plus bonus

guys - I have a Business gold currently up for annual fee. Can I apply for business plus, get its 10k bonus even though I've only held business gold for one year and then simply close the gold and transfer points to the plus

Thx
