Today, November 25, 2013, TPG team members checked the Card Match Tool and were pleasantly surprised to see that they were presented with an amazing offer. This tool is targeted, so you may not be eligible for the same offer, but it can’t hurt to try. Share what offers you get matched with below.

The offer is for the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express card with a sign up bonus of 50,000 Membership Rewards points after only $1,000 spent within the first 3 months with the $175 annual fee waived the first year (vs. the public offer of only 25,000 points after $2,000 spent in the first 3 months). Since I already have this card I was not matched with this offer but I know several people who have been presented with it.

To see if you are eligible for this offer or any other amazing deals:

1. Go to the Card Match Tool:

Up to  50,000 Membership Rewards points for the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express: The public offer on this card is just 25,000 Membership Rewards points when you spend $2,000 in the first 3 months, but this offer is for double that for spending half! So you get points by spending just $1,000 in 3 months and the rest of the terms are the same including the $0 Intro Annual Fee for the 1st year, then $195..  “Welcome bonus offer not available to current American Express card members.”

Amex points also equates to $ as a base value if you use Amex’s Pay With Points feature rather than transferring to a travel partner program – that way you still get mileage and elite credit on any flights you purchase, which is a pretty great value for a card with no annual fee for the first year.

Transfer Partners

Membership Rewards can be hold a tremendous amount of value thanks to the program’s 22 airline and hotel transfer partners which include:

Star Alliance:
Air Canada Aeroplan, Singapore, All Nippon Airlines
Oneworld: British Airways, Iberia, Cathay Pacific
Skyteam: Delta, Air France/KLM Flying Blue, Alitalia, Aeromexico
Other: Emirates, Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic, El Al, Frontier, JetBlue, Hawaiian Airlines

Hilton 1:1.5
