TPG reader Matt tweeted me to ask:

@thepointsguy–“I just got an offer for a 75,000 point welcome bonus for the American Express Business Gold Rewards Card. Should I take it?”

Matt, you should absolutely take advantage of this offer! The current public offer for the American Express Business Gold Rewards is for just 25,000 Membership Rewards points after making $5,000 in purchases in the first 3 months. Your targeted offer is clearly much more generous. In my most recent monthly points and miles valuations, 75,000 Membership Rewards points is easily worth $1,425 in award travel.

I used 62,500 Amex points to fly Lufthansa first class to Europe this past summer. Had I paid for that ticket with cash, it would have cost several thousand dollars, so youcan easily stretch those points even further. The card also offers triple points on airfare, and double points on advertising costs, gas, shipping, and certain computer vendors. If you’re running a business, it’s not hard to rack up a lot of points on this card.

I’ve seen the bonus for this card go from zero to 30,000 points, and occasionally as high as 75,000, but the highest offers are no longer public. If you’ve been targeted, it’s a good deal and you really can’t go wrong.

Overall, it’s a no brainer in my opinion. Get the card!
