There’s been a lot of buzz today on the incredible offer of an Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card with 2 years of the annual fee waived and 50,000 bonus points. It’s an incredible deal, however it is a targeted promotion for Columbia Business School 2011 and 2012 graduates. You technically need a valid Columbia Business School email address to get access to the application, but someone got the direct link and shared it online.
I didn’t post this deal, because I see the potential for it to turn ugly and I’d hate to see people get inquiries on their credit and not get the bonus. Plus, this is only for people who don’t currently have an Amex charge card (Platinum, Gold, Premier Rewards, Green or Zync card), so that further limits the usefulness of this offer.
However, this deal may actually pan out, but apply at your own risk. The application link and further discussion can be found in this Flyertalk thread. As I said, I think its a fantastic offer and I hope it works out for anyone who applies, but I can’t personally vouch for it.
