Let’s slide into the weekend with an abnormally wordy post:
- There’s a new no-lifetime language (NLL) link for the no-annual fee American Express Blue Business Plus credit card with a bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards after spending $5,000 in three months and another 10,000 Membership Rewards for adding an employee card and spending another $1,000 on that card in three months. To see if you’re targeted, login to your American Express account and then click this link. (Thanks to Parts_Unknown)
This card is basically an American Express Membership Rewards earning version of the Citi Double Cash card with a cap of $50,000 in spend per year at 2x. Starting in December and running through February, the card was amazing because you could get up to 1.98 million Membership Rewards for adding 99 employee cards. Unfortunately now the offer is only for 20,000 points after spending $2,000 on an employee card with a limit of five employees.
Side note: The 99 card offer is still alive in various forms on co-branded American Express business cards (Marriott, Hilton, Delta). I’m guessing they’ll die in the next week or two, so call American Express and ask if there are any offers for adding employee cards to your account sooner rather than later.
- The American Express Personal Gold card has a new 90,000 Membership Rewards after spending $4,000 in three months, and 20% back at restaurants (or with transactions that look like restaurants), up to $250 back. Try your luck at this link, and if it doesn’t work the first, time, try incognito, using a referral, or by searching for the card through a search engine. It may also work via a referral link, but I’ve yet to see an example. (Thanks to DoC)
As I’ve said before, I can never have too many Personal Gold cards (4x on grocery on up to $25,000 in spend can be knocked out in a day or two), and while the monthly Uber Eats and GrubHub/ShakeShack/Cheesecake Factory aren’t worth face-value, they do provide additional incentives to hold it.
- Giftcards.com has 5% back on Virtual Visa gift cards with promo code SPRINGVIP. I believe the maximum purchase is three $250 cards, which brings your total cost to $730.35 for $750 worth of virtual Visas. They’re Metabank cards so have a liquidation plan.
Make sure you go through a portal, it tracked for me. At the time of this writing, AA is at 3x and is offering 1,000 additional bonus miles for spending $300.
