Update: 100,000 offer is expired.
Christmas has come early for the Weekly Flyer Household. American Express is back with a targeted 100,000 bonus point offer just in time for the Holidays. Last time we received this offer it was for a personal card for Mrs Weekly Flyer. This time, the 100,000 American Express Platinum card offer is for the Business Platinum Card. Even if you don’t own a big company, you can apply for Business Cards if you are a sole proprietor by adding your own tax id to the application. But since we own a business, we’ll use our Business tax ID to apply for this amazing 100,000 American Express Membership Rewards offer.
Do any of you intend to apply for this offer if you receive it? Interested to hear of any variations to the offer if you’ve received one.
Targeted 100,000 American Express Business Card Offer
The targeted offer for the American Express Business Platinum Card offers 100,000 Membership Rewards points after just $10,000 in spending by April 19, 2013. The application must be received and approved by January 19, 2013. Then the spending threshold kicks in with a completion date of April 19, 2013 in order to receive the full bonus.
The last time we received this offer was in late April and we jumped on the offer. One thing I noticed which I wasn’t aware of before is that the Business Platinum Card eliminates foreign transaction fees when traveling abroad. The huge signup bonus will earn this card a spot in the Business Card section of my wallet. The no foreign transaction fee may help keep it there along with some of the other benefits like a $200 airline fee credit, access to airport clubs, among other benefits.
Non Targeted Offers
It’s possible this American Express offer was put out in time for the Holidays for Businesses to ramp up spending with. Alternatively it may have been put out to compete against some very good Business Card offers from Chase. Chase recently came out with some great Ink Business card offers which require only $5,000 in spending to receive the lower bonus of 50,000 points. In addition, Chase recently came out with a 100,000 British Airways Avios point personal offer which is detailed below. So if you don’t receive the 100,000 American Express Business Card offer and are considering credit cards that offer generous flexible point bonus offers, the Chase cards offer a high bonus with a nominal amount of spending.
Keep an eye out for the 100,000 Membership Reward bonus offer for the Business Platinum Card from American Express. If you are not targeted for the American Express offers, consider the Chase offer which has a 1/2 lower spending requirement along with 1/2 the size of bonus points. Even if you don’t own a big company, you can apply for Business Cards if you are a sole proprietor by adding your own tax id to the application. The current American Express 100,000 Platinum Business Card offer appears to be valid through January 19, 2013.
