Best Ever 60,000 Membership Rewards for Amex Gold & Up to 225K for Platinum

by Zoe

This weekend consider the best-ever sign up bonus for the American Express® Gold Card and a fantastic offer for the The Platinum Card® from American Express.

American Express® Gold Card

The current 60,000 Membership Rewards points offer for spending $4,000 within six months on the American Express® Gold Card is the most generous offer ever for this card! As long as you have not had the Amex Gold Card or the Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card, you are eligible to receive the bonus! Of course, the points will combine with any other Membership Rewards points that you may have. Better yet, since the card is a charge card and not a credit card, it does NOT count towards your American Express credit card limit.

  • Earn 60,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $4,000 on eligible purchases with your new Card within the first 6 months.
  • Earn 4X Membership Rewards® Points on Restaurants worldwide, including takeout and delivery.
  • Earn 4X Membership Rewards® points at U.S. supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases, then 1X).
  • Earn 3X Membership Rewards® points on flights booked directly with airlines or on amextravel.com.
  • $120 Dining Credit: Earn up to a total of $10 in statement credits monthly when you pay with the Gold Card at Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Boxed, and participating Shake Shack locations. This can be an annual savings of up to $120. Enrollment required.
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees.
  • Annual Fee is $250.
  • Terms Apply.

The benefits on this card are great!

This card was relaunched with exciting new benefits in 2018. A huge benefit of this card is that you’ll earn 4x points at restaurants globally and US supermarkets (on up to $25,000 per calendar year in purchases, then 1X) while earning 3x points on airfare booked directly with airlines.  There is an annual fee of $250 (See Rates & Fees), but most of it is a wash when you consider that you’ll receive $10 in statement credits monthly when you pay with The Gold Card at Grubhub, Seamless, The Cheesecake Factory, Shake Shack, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House. This is an annual savings of up to $120.  Early next year, this card will be getting a new $120 annual Uber credit. That’s $240 in credits. For those with a Platinum Card, this benefit will work similar to the Uber credit you receive for that card. You’ll get a $10 monthly credit valid towards U.S. Uber rides and Uber Eats purchases.

The current welcome bonus is double the standard 30,000 Membership Rewards points public offer.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

The latest sign-up bonus for this card could be worth up to 225,000 Membership Rewards points. You’ll earn 75,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $5,000 within six months. Then add the second part of the offer – earn 10x points at U.S. gas stations and U.S. supermarkets on up to $15,000 in combined purchases during your first six months of card membership. Like the Gold Card above, you won’t be approved if you currently have the card or have had it in the past.
