AMEX has just upped the ante on the Premier Rewards Gold card with a 25,000 point signup bonus after spending $1,000 within 3 months. You can buy just 4 small boxes of dollar coins from the US Mint to meet the spending requirement. The previous offer for this card was for 15,000 AMEX points.
With the previous 15,000 point offer, dozens of people who had applied via the link above reported that they got a 2nd bonus of 15,000 points after spending $1,000. It’s entirely possible that people will get that same bonus 15,000 points with this offer, if you apply for this card please let us know what happens!!!!
AMEX points are quite valuable and can be transferred at a 1:1 ratio to over a dozen airlines or at varying ratios to these hotel programs.
AMEX points have 2 key advantages over Starwood points, they can be transferred into anyone’s mileage account and the transfer is instantaneous. Of course they don’t have the 20,000:25,000 point transfer ratio or the breadth of other redemption options that Starpoints offer.
You will get the signup bonus for this card even if you have had other AMEX cards in the past. (Generally speaking I have never had a problem burning AMEX charge cards and have gotten multiple signup bonuses on the same AMEX charge card in the past)
You get 3 points for every dollar spent on airfare, 2 points for every dollar spent on gas or groceries, and a point per dollar everywhere else.
You will also get another 15,000 bonus MR points for spending $30,000 in a calendar year.
The card also comes with a myriad of other buyer protections and insurances, including AMEX’s incredible return protection and warranty protection.
The annual fee is currently waived for the first year, so go on and grab those signup bonus points while this card is still free for the first year!
