American Express Referral Bonus Update
I recently wrote about American Express member referral offers, which were actually better than the publicly-available sign-up bonuses. These private bonuses were set to expire (and did) on February 13 but the good news is that there are some new offers through the end of this month.
Below are the new sign-up bonuses with their respective links, for the Platinum and Premier Rewards Gold cards. I think both of these cards are well worth it. The Platinum card more than pays for itself, and the Gold has great earning potential for use with everyday spend. For more information on the basic membership benefits of each of the cards, see this previous post.
Bonus: 50,000 Membership Rewards for spending $3,000 in 3 months
Eligibility: For referrals submitted my March 1, with applications submitted by March 15, 2012
Card members are now limited to a total of 5 referrals for the Platinum card, but the good news is that the bonus has been increased to 20,000 Membership Rewards points.
Bonus: 25,000 Membership Rewards points for spending $2,000 in 3 months.
Eligibility: For referrals submitted my March 15, with applications submitted by March 31, 2012
Existing card members can find referral offers at americanexpress.com/referplatinum.
If you are interested in signing up for either card and would like a referral, I would be ecstatic if you would email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to comment if you have a referral bonus (especially for the Platinum) card that you would like to share.
Full Disclosure: I do not receive a cash referral bonus for anyone using these links.
