Update: As of now all known working links for the 20K bonus are dead.
Blue Business Plus 20K Bonus Working App
The American Express Blue Business Plus is one of the more compelling products to launch recently. In a world of complicated credit card benefits and earning structures, it makes things easy. The card works as follows:
- You don’t pay an annual fee.
- You earn 2X Membership Rewards points on all purchases up to $50,000 in spend per calendar year. Then you earn 1X afterwards.
When the card launched about a month ago, it had a public bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points after $3,000 in spend during the first 3 months. Unfortunately, that public bonus seems to have disappeared. As of now the public bonus is a big fat 0.
Thankfully Doctor of Credit has located a “zombie link” that is still working for the 20K bonus. Zombie links sometimes last a long time and sometimes they get shutdown rather quickly.
The above link is not an affiliate link and will take you directly to the American Express website.
Update 6/28/2017 – New Link
The link posted above has been pulled but there again a new link that can still get you the bonus. This should be another reminder that Amex will likely remove this bonus soon.
Should You Apply?
While I can’t say whether or not it makes sense for you to apply, I think this card is very compelling and I personally got it within the first week of launch. With 2X everyday earnings it is among my best overall everyday spend cards and I love that it is eligible for Amex Offers as well. Additionally I was able to get the card without a credit check and it won’t show on my personal credit report, which is a plus considering things like the Chase 5/24 rule.
Given the fact that American Express regularly adjusts bonuses, I suspect we will see a public bonus for this card again at some point, but probably not very soon. If you were interested in picking up this card soon, you may want to use the link above to lock-in the 20K bonus.
