Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here: The Enhanced Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN, Platinum Card from American Express, Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN
On the heels of increased offers for the Premier Rewards Gold and Delta Amex, American Express is upping the signup bonus on the Business Platinum Card to 25,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $5,000 in the first three months of cardmembership- up from the most recent bonus of 0 points. It is possible to get both a personal and business Amex card in the same day, but in my most recent experience, it will still be two credit pulls. Still could be worth it, since these bonuses are much better than normal.
New offer details:
The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN
|Intro APR||Regular APR||Annual Fee||Balance Transfer||Credit Rating|
|N/A||N/A||$450||See Terms||Excellent Credit|
The Business Platinum card comes with the same core benefits as the personal Platinum Card, which I outline in this post, but which include among others: –Annual $200 airline rebate –Airport Lounge Access –Free Global Entry ($100) -Automatic Starwood Preferred Guest Gold Status –Fine Hotels & Resorts Program –Premium Companion Ticket Benefit -Purchase Protection And more, which all help make the $450 annual fee more than worth it.
Just note, the terms and conditions state “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product or any other Business Gold or Green Card account within the last 12 months”. I got the Business Gold last February, and I know many of you have gotten in on limited-time and one-day offers on the Business Gold when the sign-up bonus was raised to 75,000 points like the one last month, so technically we wouldn’t be eligible for this sign-up bonus. However, I’ve heard of people still getting Amex bonuses even when they technically don’t qualify, so you never really know, though Amex has been getting very strict with sign-up bonus qualification.
