I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
In the past couple of weeks there’s been huge small business credit card offers. Most though not all have come from American Express. We’re approaching the end of the year and it looks like it’s time for banks to really build on their new cardmember acquisition numbers. And we benefit with more generous signup bonuses across the board.
50,000 Point Bonus for Business Gold Rewards
Meanwhile they’ve bumped the signup bonus on the Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN 50,000 Membership Rewards points after $5,000 spend on purchases with the card within your first 3 months of cardmembership.
This card has a $0 annual fee the first year, then $175. And you get to choose your triple points earning category for this card from:
- Airfare purchased directly from airlines
- US purchases for advertising
- US gas stations
- Purchases made directly from select computer hardware, software, and cloud computing providers
The four categories you don’t select to earn triple points earn double points instead, and you earn these increased points in the five categories on the first $100,000 in each category.
As If That Wasn’t Enough, They Want Your Delta Business Too
Through November 9 the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card From American Express is offering 70,000 bonus miles and 10,000 elite qualifying miles after $5,000 spend on purchases in your first 3 months of cardmembership. The card comes with a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase on the new card within your first 3 months. (Offer expired)
Benefits of the card include first checked bag free and up to $50 on a round trip Delta flight, plus Priority Boarding.
I don’t think I’ve seen one card issuer get so aggressive with acquisitions across their card portfolio at once this way before. And I’ve certainly never seen it with business card products.
