American Express Business Gold 100k Offer
I covered the 150k Amex Business Platinum bonus earlier today. It appears that the offer is now dead. Quite a few people have been told the code is invalid or expired. My guess is that American Express killed it after a few too many applications today.
As you may have noticed a lot of blogs reported on this today, but one post by the Reward Boss piqued my interest. To be honest, I actually read his post and mentally skipped over the interesting part, but PDXDealsGuy pointed it out to me.
Getting Offered 100k on the Business Gold
The Reward Boss called in around the time that the 150k code became invalid. The agent on the phone told him the offer was no longer available, but offered to search for other offers. After getting his information, the agent came back with a 100k offer after $10k in spend on the Business Gold card. That really is amazing since the annual fee is waived the first year on that card.
Before you run out and think you can get this, that offer was targeted to him. With that said, perhaps it is a good idea to give American Express a call once in awhile to have them pull up your information (especially if you have an account with them.) In his case it resulted in an incredible offer on the Business Gold card.
Follow up on my 150k Experience
I also wanted to update you quickly on my 150k Biz Platinum application experience. Shortly after publishing the deal this morning, I called up Amex and applied for the 150k offer myself. The process took about 30 minutes since the agent had to read quite a few disclosures. Thankfully I was approved instantly and my Amex Business Platinum card is in the mail!
Now that I have read the Reward Boss, I think I am going to call up American Express to see if I am eligible for any other targeted offers. (I already have the Business Gold, but perhaps they have something else.) In the past inquiries done in the same day with Amex have been merged, so I might as well. Plus with all of the Amex offers lately, it may be a good decision.
While I don’t think it is necessary to rush, perhaps it is a good idea to call up American Express at 1-877-628-6736 at some point to see if they have some “Gold” or other riches for you. (This is the business phone number.) Perhaps they don’t, but they might. Of course, don’t apply for offers just because they are good. Make sure it makes sense given your overall position and strategy. Have a great night!
