American Express has recently announced a great new promotion – 25,000 bonus points for signing for their Premier Rewards Gold Card. The standard signup bonus for this card has been around 10-15k points, so I’m pretty excited about this for those of you looking to pick up some Amex points.
This is a card I actually carry in my wallet, mainly because it offers 3x rewards on airfare, 2x points on gas and groceries and 1x points on everything else. I value the Amex Membership Rewards points pretty highly because they’re transferable to a number of programs.This card does carry a hefty $175 dollar annual fee (waived for the first year), so consider that before applying.
If this is a card you actually have, you can now pick up a whopping 10,000 points for referring friends or family (up from their usual 5,000 bonus). You can send your friends/family a referral link from this site to get the bonus (after they’re approved, of course).
A big thanks to The Points Guy for the tip, and be sure to check out his detailed analysis of the Gold Card here.
