Welcome bonus terms: 

You officially won’t get the welcome bonus on this card if you have or have had this exact card, though readers have reported success after several years.

You can tell if you are eligible for an AMEX welcome bonus by simply applying. If you are not eligible for the bonus you will get a popup notification after clicking to apply for the card. At that point you can decide whether to proceed or cancel the application before it is actually processed.

American Express doesn’t perform a hard pull for existing AMEX cardholders.

Spend Threshold:

You’ll need to spend $1,000-$4,000 within 3 months.

You can pay your federal taxes for a 1.85% fee. If you overpay your taxes you can request a refund or apply it to your next year’s taxes.

My local natural gas company allows me to prepay up to $1,000 on a credit card for a $1.65 flat fee. That’s a great way to earn miles and help meet a spend threshold. My electricity supplier allows me to pay with a credit card for free as long as I am enrolled in autopay.

Business vs Consumer card:

AMEX business cards don’t appear on your credit report. That’s good for several reasons.

First of all they won’t count against your 5/24 count for opening new Chase cards. Only cards on your report that have been opened within the past 24 months count for that.

Second, when you spend money on personal cards your credit score will be hurt even if you pay your bill on time. A whopping 30% of your credit score is based on credit utilization. You can pay off your card bill before your statement is generated to avoid that, but that takes effort and laying out money well before you have to. Additionally it’s good to have the statement close with a couple dollars to show the card is active and being paid every month. On an AMEX business card it’s just not reported, so you can wait until the money is due without it having a negative effect on your score.

Third, if you close a business card it won’t ever have an effect on your score.

You may already have a business that needs a card to keep track of expenses. For example if your name is Joe Smith and you sell items online, or if you have any other side business and want a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures you can open a business credit card for “Joe Smith” as the business. 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

With a breakfast like this, you may not even be hungry for dinner…

How long after you reach the threshold will u get the bonus?

Hilton wary

Is the free night at any hotel? Is there a list of which resorts trigger the 250 ?

Anon

Question, what’s the transferability of these points? I hold the AMEX platinum and it’s a disaster. Very disappointed.

Ely

What’s the limitation to the free night certificate? Can you stay at any hilton with that certificate?

As

Are you able to use the free night at any hotel?

Od

can you apply hilton points to offset annual fee?

Is Amex as easy as Chase when it comes to opening business accounts as sole proprietorship?

Mike

Esaphire3

Put in social by tax id

oirach

much easier

Varun agarwal

I got an upgrade offer for 50K points. Don’t want another credit card hit as already have 5-24 limit for chase.

Do you think it is worth it? I have no use of Priority pass vouchers.

Chaim

The aspire gives you a free night and 250$ toward travel, and 250 toward a resort!

Moishe

Does amex do a company credit check for the business card

yankel

Are these bonus points usable for, or transferrable to, anything other than Hilton use?

Shimon

Is there a limit on how many Amex credit cards can I have?

Mendy

How does Hilton’s points compare to Marriott? Does the Hilton point have good value?

Yochai

Hilton sells points for 0.5 cents during promotional periods, so the market value is probably less, but obviously YMMV.

Joseph

Can you use the free night in Jerusalem?

L

It tells in I’m ineligible for the welcome bonus even though I never had the card before

Yochai

Happened to me too in the past with a Delta gold. Was eligible 2 years later.

CAA

does the free reward night expire?

Mike

How can I apply for business card without TAX ID # and just SS?

LB

do you need to have any other membership in order to access the lounges?

Gary

I was approved for a business Gold card yesterday. Can I get approved for a Hilton business charge card today?

el

Had the surpass with a sign up bonus a couple years ago and downgraded to the express at the end of the year. Still have the express card. If I cancel can I apply for the express and get a sign up bonus? Or did I mess that up by now having the card??

el

Can someone apply for a personal and business hilton card at the same time?

Moishe

Is everyone else having the same issue while checking for availability for multiple nights using points at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem for future months, the results always come back as saying unavailable. Any solution to this new problem with checking points availability at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem for multiple nights for future months?

Sam

What are bonus points

SA

Points awarded for opening the card and meeting the spend requirement rather than standard points that are awarded for staying at a property.
