While I’m on a credit card kick, I might as well mention the American Express Business Gold card 50,000 sign up mile offer if you spend $10,000 by Dec 31, 2010. Not for everyone, but if you don’t think you’d have an issue spending that, you may consider applying. You may be saying “Uh, Points Guy- I don’t own a business.” The funny thing is that you don’t actually need to own an official business-when it asks for your business name, just create a simple one and list it as a sole proprietorship. Think of it as your own personal Ebay selling business that you want to start up in the future. Hey- who knows!

In any case, application is here and discussion thread about the offer on Flyertalk is here. As with all promos, do your own due diligence to make sure its right for you.

As a point of reference 50k Amex by itself can get you a first class ticket to anywhere in the US, or coach to Hawaii. Or if you get to 63,000 Amex you can get an Upper Class ticket on Virgin from NYC-London. Not bad for signing up for a credit card that has no fee for the first year!
