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.

Offer Terms:
-LIMITED TIME OFFER: Earn 75,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $10,000 in the first 4 months of Card membership.
-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.
-Earn points even faster to get more rewards for your business
-24/7 support for everything from identity theft to travel emergencies
-$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.

Spending $10,000 in 4 months:
Spending $10K isn’t what it used to be.
I have spent that much at CVS in one night :D

With options like Vanilla Reloads, Vanilla MVD cards that can be easily combined, 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%.
This month there is a 50% bonus for transfers from American Express Canada to British Airways so hopefully that will come down to us soon!
With a bonus you can get to Israel for as little as 20K points each way instead of the normal 30K points each way.
-Once you’re done with $10K in spending you’ll have at least 85K American Express Membership Rewards 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)
-Air Canada (Star Alliance)
-Alitalia (Skyteam)

    “If you make zero income: then why are you applying for credit cards?”

    That’s an easy question. I don’t need or want a line of credit. What I want is tons of points and miles so I can go on vacation. With the combination of “zero expense spending” (ie. vanilla reloads or amazon payments) and “reimbursed spending” (ie. merkos shlichus expenses), meeting these spending thresholds is quite attainable.

    With no out of pocket purchases, I have easily met spending thresholds on several cards in the last two years.

    Hi Dan, I’m interested in flying with my family to Israel to do a Bar Mitzvah trip in August. I’m on a very tight budget. (6 people. and if the extended family decide to come it could be 15-20 people) I know the price is now $1100-1500 pp. I saw a deal a few weeks ago for $692 pp traveling Aug 19-28 through Orbitz (with a stopover in Amsterdam). My dates were 1 day off because his actual Bar Mitzvah day would be Aug20 and we would’ve been on an airplane for that. We chose to hold-off. I feel terrible that I missed that deal.

    Do you foresee another $400-800 pp deal in August again, or prices staying the same, or going up? (I would like to book before May.) what you advise is the cheapest way to fly there, then? ANA miles? Flying Blue? just wait?

    Dan in the past you have recommended transferring Amex points to British Airways and then using Avios points for US domestic flights on American. The problem with BA avios is availability during peak travel season, especially to book for large family.

Any advise or other ways of using AMEX points to book this route for summer travel for family???

    @Davidd:
    Search on connecting routes.
    For example search for tickets from NYC to Chicago or Dallas and then from Chicago or Dallas to San Diego.
    It will cost more Avios, but there is just 1 flight a day between NYC and San Diego.

    Alternatively fly into a nearby airport like Orange County or Los Angeles.

    @Dan: the truth about buying so many vr is to earn the signup bonuses plus regular points. just recently, thanx to you i opened chase sw times 2, sp and freedom. also amex spg, prg and dl. alot of spending but thanx to vr pretty minimal effort. now to get back to my original question, does anyone have experience with amex giving trouble for cvs gc purchases

    DAN:

    Two quick questions:
    1) Can I later on close this card and transfer my points to “Costco Business Amex” or ” SPG Business Amex”? (trying to see if I can avoid (or reduce) the $175 fee after 1st year)

    2) Getting “Aemx gift card/s” would count for the 10k I have to spend in 4 month?

    ty! :) (i got approved today)

    I realised that the 75K offer is only available if I go via your link. Why is that?
    Anyway, I am approved – thanks so much Dan

    1each with my EIN
    Will that all be one pull on my personal credit?

    You’re fine.

    @any ideas would help:
    Prebuy gift cards and cash them out over time on Amazon Payments.

    @henche:
    Congrats!

    @bingo:
    There are codes to get fee-free gift cards from AMEX.

    @niegerig:
    I do.

    @Chase:
    Ink Bold was always 5K or 10K.

    @Davidd:
    Try searching for fewer people and taking different flights.

    @Yosef:
    Which browsers have you tried incognito?
    Seems to work in IE best but try them all.

    @Mottelleim:
    1. You can transfer the points to airlines or another charge card before you close.

    2. Yes.

    Congrats!

    @Yon:
    It’s a DansDeal :D

    @Unclejoe:
    Should be just one pull.

    General question for offers like these: when is says spend $X in X months, when is the cutoff for the X months — from when you apply, receive your card, activate it, statement closing date?

    @Ari:
    Generally from when you’re approved, though they usually give a few extra days, so in essence from when you receive it.

    You can always SM them to find the exact deadline.

    Pulls effect your credit the most for 3 months, after 6 months they don’t effect it very much at all, but they do stay on for 2 years.

    I just realized this is a Charge card, not a Credit Card..

    1) The only practical difference is that every month I have to pay the balance in full right?

    2) Would this prevent me from getting another CREDIT Card right away? Ie: if lets say my credit is not so great so I can have another 4th CREDIT card, so if this CHARGE card was my third CARD, can I still get a CREDIT card? or all the same in this regard?(sorry if im not being clear, hard to explain in writing) ty!

    I got denied for the Amex business gold card (75k signup bonus). I called and sent a SM and they keep telling me that all they can do is a “review” which will most likely include another hard pull (although my credit is excellent and they said that’s not the reason i was declined).
    Any advice?
