Signup bonus:
75,000 bonus Membership Rewards points for spending $10,000 in 4 months.

Having consumer charge cards (Green, Gold, Platinum, etc) , consumer credit cards, or business credit cards will not stop you from earning this signup bonus.
If you have had a business charge card (Green, Gold, or Platinum) in the past 12 months the terms state that you will not receive the bonus. YMMV.

Limited Time Offer:
This will expire early next Monday morning, 01/28.

You will earn:
-3X points on airfare
-2x points on purchases in the U.S. for advertising in select media, gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, and shipping
-1X points on other purchases
-Points are earned only on eligible purchases. Bonus points limitations apply.
-$0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $175
-Introductory annual fee for Additional Gold Cards in the first year is $0; then, $50 for the first Additional Gold Card and no fee for other Additional Cards
-Terms & Restrictions Apply.
-Offer expires January 28th, 2013.

Spending $10,000 in 4 months:
Spending $10K isn’t what it used to be.
I spent that much at CVS just 2 nights ago in a single shot (well, 10 shots)!

With options like Vanilla Reloads, Vanilla MVD cards, and prepaid gift cards sold at a discount there are lots of ways to help you meet thresholds.
And of course there’s trusty old Amazon Payments made even easier with free additional user cards.

No need to rehash everything, Here are articles I’ve written on this stuff:
-Is Bluebird The Next Dollar Coin Churn?
-Another Flavor Of Vanilla: My Vanilla Debit Card
-Today’s Escapades
-Meeting A Spend Threshold In One Night.
-Need To Meet A Spending Threshold Deadline? Send And Receive $1,000/Month With No Fees Using Amazon Payments!

If you spend $1,000 at Fedex for example you’ll get a 5% automatic cash rebate and 2,000 points (double points for shipping as stated above). $1,000 at HP gets a 10% automatic cash rebate and 1,000 points plus their awesome extended warranty coverage as long as you have any open American Express card at the time of the claim.

What can you do with the points:
-You can wait for another Avios bonus. These come by every few months and usually range from 30%-50%. That means you get to Israel for as little as 20K points each way instead of the normal 30K points eacy way. Once you’re done with $10K in spending you’ll have at least 85K points.
-A flight from NYC to short-haul destinations (like Cleveland, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, and many others) on American booked via Avios is just 4,500 each way with no fuel surcharges. With 85K points you’d have enough for about 19 short-haul flights. Or wait for the return of a transfer bonus and you’ll have enough for as many as 28 short-haul flights!
-A flight from NYC to medium-haul destinations (like Miami) on American booked via Avios is just 7,500 each way with no fuel surcharges. With 85K points you’d have enough for more than 11 medium-haul flights. Or wait for the return of a transfer bonus and you’ll have enough for as many as 17 medium-haul flights!
-A flight from NYC to resort destinations like Cancun or Puerto Rico on American booked via Avios is just 10,000 each way with no fuel surcharges. With 85K points you’d have enough for more than 8 of those flights. Or wait for the return of a transfer bonus and you’ll have enough for as many as 12 of those flights!
-A flight from NYC to stunning Costa Rica on American booked via Avios is just 12,500 each way with no fuel surcharges. Of you can fly from the West Coast to any Hawaiian Island for that rate. Or you can even fly from Boston to Ireland for the same rate with no fuel surcharges on Aer Lingus (you’ll have to call to book trips on airlines like Aer Lingus or Alaska). With 85K points you’d have enough for about 7 of those flights. Or wait for the return of a transfer bonus and you’ll have enough for as many as 10 of those flights!
-The only way to fly in Singapore’s First Class Suites, or in their great business or first class products, is with Singapore miles. Book on their website to save 15% of the miles needed. I flew to Europe last month in a couples suite with my wife for about 58K miles each.
-Air France/KLM Flying Blue charges only 25K miles round-trip to Israel during a Promo award or just 50K miles round-trip to Israel on Delta with no fuel surcharges. Plus there are occasionally bonuses to Flying Blue as well, dropping those rates even lower.
-The only way to fly in El Al First Class, which includes the best glatt kosher food in the sky, is with El Al points.
-Air Canada can book you on other Star Alliance carriers, like United and USAirways and many more, with no fue surcharges. Bonus: They also allow for 2 free stopovers, so you can checkout 3 different cities on 1 ticket.

Getting a business card:

Getting a business card is quite simple.  You don’t need to be a traditional “business owner” as you might think of one.

For example if Joe Smith sells items on Ebay or on Amazon, or has any other side business/hobby and wants a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures he can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith Sole Proprietorship” as the business name.  You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field as well as in the social security number field.

I’ve had business cards since I turned 18 as a Sole Proprietor and never had a problem getting approved with reconsideration if needed. You can reach reconsideration at 866-314-0237.

Best of all, spending you make on a business card won’t hurt your credit score as spending on a consumer card does.

Charge card:
This is a charge card without a defined credit line, so even when you’re ready to close the account you won’t lose that line of credit.

Plus it’s not subject the limit of 4 American Express credit cards per person, as charge cards are not limited in the way credit cards with a credit line are limited.

If you make zero income:
Then why are you applying for credit cards? American Express has the right to ask to see you tax returns at any time. While people have reported passing the financial review as long as they make something (DDF’ers have reported as little as $5K/year) it’s not a good idea to apply for this card (or any American Express card for that matter) if you don’t have income on the books.

Membership Rewards points transfer to:
Transfers are at 1K:1K ratios or are otherwise listed.

-Aeromexico (Skyteam)

    I’m no prophet, it’s not like if you do X you will for sure be asked for your tax return. But it’s always good to have some level income on the books if possible. People have passed reviews with just $5K of income.

    @Joel L.:
    Nope, AMEX doesn’t match.

    @Bob:
    Sure there is, just look on the right-hand side.
    Officially no, but YMMV.

    @Donald:
    If you have another AMEX charge card open you can move the points to that card.
    Or else you can transfer them to an airline or sell them to anyone else.

    Don’t transfer Ultimate Rewards points into someone else’s Ultimate Rewards account besides for your wife’s.
    And don’t spend close to your limits.

    @Jwintim:
    YMMV.

    @mottele:
    25K+$200 fee refund sounds worthwhile to me.

    @mike:
    Any apps from AMEX on the same day will be just 1 pull. Apply in different browsers at the same time to try to get automatic approval.

    @BenTheMan:
    Yes.

    You can just cancel, it’s a charge card you don’t lose the credit line.

    Thanks for your help Dan, I just did my first 3BM (This gold biz + PRG + SPG consumer). I got 2 approvals but a pending further review for the SPG (oddly enough).

    However, when I check the app status, all 3 say approved. I assume this means I’m good to go?

    Finally, does anyone have any suggestions for avoiding FR? I have been putting $1-$2k in legit spending on my other AMEXes for years now. I assume doing the same thing plus adding $2-3k across 3 for the next few months (AP, VR, etc.) won’t raise any red flags, but I just want to make sure. For what it’s worth, I have 5 figures of real, personal wage income to show, but no biz income. However I did not lie on the app and said $0-$49,999 biz income…

    I have been using your techniques for just the last year and am happy to tell you that I have secured 5 trips to Israel, $1500 cash back and other great rewards.
    My question is: I applied for the business gold and got approved now. I also applied for two others and they told me that I have too many AMEX cards in my name. Is there a limit as I have 8 now?

    @d90:
    Yup, that’s a successful 3BM!

    With a 5 figure income you’ll be fine even with an FR, but the best advice is take is slow. You don’t have to spend $10K on the card in 1 night.

    @vanilla:
    Look on vanillareload.com for locations.
    Gas stations can be a good bet.

    @elky:
    You should generally apply for different cards from the same bank.

    There is a limit of 4 credit cards, but no limit on charge cards.

    AMEX doesn’t know the difference if you buy prescriptions, toiletries, or prepaid cards.
    You get the same points on all of them.

    Have them cancel out the apps, unfreeze your report, and then apply again may be the best bet.

    Why not just transfer the points during the free year to an airline?
    Or open another free card at the end of the year (Premier Gold, etc), get the points for it, and transfer your business gold points to the premier gold card.

Also, would the 75,000 bonus still apply if I need to call to reconsider for this Gold Card, or would I need to get approved by tomorrow morning to get the promotional bonus?

    As long as you apply by 10:59am tomorrow you will qualify for the 75K.

    @Dan: If I do an Amex 3bm and they all end up just pending, will each one ultimately cause a hard hit. Only way to get one hit is if all three are approved? Thanks!

    You can always call Recon to push them through…YMMV as always.

    @david:
    Ask them.

    @malki:
    The 100K was a glitch, it won’t be returning anytime soon.

    1. what is YMMV
    2. If you are a current AMex card holder, if gives you an option to sign up quickly but putting in your old CC info, do you still get the bonus sign up if you do it that way? Or do you have to put it in manually to get the bonus?
    thanks

    1. Your mileage may vary.
    2. Better to enter manually.

    @Dan: Dan I did a triple app for this business gold, the business spg and the business delta. Got approval on the gold, pending on the delta, and on the spg i got this ” Unfortunately, we cannot approve your application at this time. According to our records, you currently have the maximum number and type of American Express Card accounts that we allow.”

    I dont understand because I do have other SPG cards with them but not any other business ones?

    Hi Dan,

    I just went to buy a VR from Walgreens and they said only cash will be accepted to buy VRs and not credit cards.. Any other ideas on how to get VRs to meet the threshhold…Also I don’t have lengthy credit history just 3 years but my FICO score is 744 and I donot have any business cards..do you think applying for Gold business and a SPG consumer would be a good idea?

    Attempted using 3BM for SW Cons, SW Bus, and AMEX Bus Gold, I got instant approval for Starwood Consumer but other 2 showed error message and to call. I called up and got approval for AMEX Bus Gold but didn’t get a chance to setup SW Business.

    If I attempt the last card now (within hour), will all applications be one hard pull? Thanks for posting this deal!

    If you open more AMEX cards today though you shouldn’t get more hard pulls from AMEX.

    @malky:
    Search AA.com for sAAver availability. Then call BA to book if you can’t figure out the website.

    “You can’t 3BM different banks.”

    I apologize for the follow up but isn’t Starwood part of AMEX? I was referring to an earlier reply when someone asked what you recommend for additional cards to the AMEX Business Gold for the 3BM and the reponse was “Starwood consumer, Premier Gold Consumer, and Starwood business are all great cards that are free for a year”

    I saw AMEX lists the Starwood when you click to view all cards. Am I missing something? Thanks for the timely response!

    Lol, just a misunderstanding then.

    SW is an abbreviation for Southwest (Chase)
    Starwood can be abbreviated as SPG.

    You should call Recon now for the SPG cards.

    A sole-proprietor uses his SSN as his Tax ID number, so as long as you applied as a sole-proprietor you are fine.

    Dan one thing I am still not clear about; if my goal is to book a flight from Newark to Israel using Amex points is it better to transfer AMEX points to ANA and use those miles to book a United flight or to transfer the Amex miles to Air Canada and then try and book a United flight. Since in both scenarios they are united flights so no fuel surcharges right?, so which is the better option? any advantages of one over the other? or is there a better option i am missing
