American Express offers a sign up bonus of 10,000 membership rewards points. The 10,000 bonus points are worth $100 in gift cards.
However, as I mentioned in my $4,292 Credit Card Application Spree, the benefits of this card go beyond the sign up bonus.
You can pool your MR points across multiple cards and use this card to keep your points from expiring if you close other cards. After picking up multiple platinum cards (American Express Platinum, the Business Platinum and the Schwab platinum cards) with hefty annual fees I needed a card with no annual fee to use as a storage place for the points in the future.
The EveryDay card is a great one to keep on hand without having to worry about losing points while you open and close other cards.
It’s our Free Money offer.
