Looking for 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points?
OFFER EXPIRED: Please see current offer.
Today’s the final full day to take advantage of the Business Platinum Card from American Express‘ limited time offer awarding new applicants at least that much when they spend $25,000 within the first three months of card membership. (There are some options that may be more affordable for others — read on.)
The welcome offer breaks down like this:
- Receive 50,000 bonus MR after you spend $10,000 within the first three months
- Receive an additional 50,000 MR after spending $15,000 more during the first three months.
Plus, because you’re dropping $25,000 and earning (at least) a point per buck, that’ll bring in another 25,000 MR.
Long story short: spend $25,000 within 90 days of being approved and get 125,000 Membership Rewards points.
Rene’s Points readers know I’m a big fan of the Amex Business Platinum card. I love, love, love the 35% Membership Rewards point rebate when paying with points through Amex Travel. (That benefit applies to coach purchases on one select airline and first class purchases on any airline.)
The airline incidental credit is also a nice perk, as is the great airport club lounge access. (Delta Sky Club, American Express Centurion Lounges, Priority Pass Select, Escape Lounges)
The Business Platinum Card from American Express carries a $595 annual fee.
Other Business Cards to Consider
Are the high annual fee and $25,000 minimum spend requirement a little stiff for your taste? Most other business cards offer much better bonus point categories — for significantly less or no annual fee. (Though they don’t offer the bells and whistles of the Amex Business Platinum card.)
Chase Ink Business Cash Card — No Annual Fee!
As I wrote a few weeks ago, a great 1-2 punch is holding the Chase Ink Business Preferred Card and Chase Ink Business Cash Card. For only $95 in annual fees, you receive fantastic Ultimate Rewards and cash back options.
