It’s a good time to sign up for an American Express Card — especially if you’re planning on going to any concerts or sporting events in the next year or so.

Meaning that — between the dates of August 14 and September 18, if you use someone’s referral code to sign up for either an American Express® Gold Card, Amex EveryDay® Credit Card from American Express and the Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card from American Express or a Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express, you earn up to 40,000 Amex Membership Rewards and up to $250 in a Ticketmaster statement credit.

The deal specified above is specifically for select users of the Amex Gold Card. If you want to refer someone, Doctor of Credit reported that you must do it through email, and when signing up for the offer they need to use the same e-mail that you referred them with. The offer is also only valid on the card the prospect is referred for.

Keep in mind that if you want to redeem the Ticketmaster and point bonus, you have to spend at least $2,000 within the 3 months. Here are the other offers:

  • Amex Everyday: You can earn up to 15,000 Membership Rewards points with $250 in statement credits at Ticketmaster purchases after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months.
  • Amex Everyday Preferred: You can earn up to 20,000 Membership Rewards points with $250 in statement credits at Ticketmaster purchases after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months.
