The American Express Business Gold Rewards Card typically offers 25,000 rewards points as a sign up bonus.
However, there’s also a 75,000 point sign up bonus right now, you just have to get to the landing page! I just applied and my application went through without a problem.
It’s Free Money Friday!
How to Get Your 75,000 Point Sign Up Bonus
- Open a new American Express Business Gold Rewards card*.
- Spend $10,000 during the first 3 months.
- Earn 75,000 points.
*You may have to try a few different browsers or go incognito to see the increased offer. I was able to see it immediately when clicking through feedly.
Doctor of Credit points out there is another offer that is targeted to earn 75,000 points when you spend $5,000 in the first 3 months. The direct link for that offer is Business Gold Rewards. You won’t be eligible for the $5,000 spending requirement if you get the message: “We’re sorry, our systems are currently down. Please try to apply again later. Alternately, you can apply by phone 24/7 by calling 1-800-519-OPEN.”
Terms and Conditions
- Annual fee $175 (waived for the first year).
- Limit one offer per Card Account.
- Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product within the last 12 months.

Category Selection. Unlike our quarterly cash back cards, you get to make your selection annually. The annual selection period is from December 1st to January 31st each year. If you don’t change your selection, it will be the same as the previous year.
Redeeming Points. You can redeem your points for $750 in gift cards, for shopping, travel, statement credits and more. See the Best Way to Maximize American Express Points.
Spending Requirements. The spending requirements for this offer are fairly steep. For some inspiration here are 22 Ways to Meet Spending Requirements for Sign Up Bonuses.
Standard Offer. If you aren’t eligible for the targeted offer and don’t want to meet $10,000 in spending requirements, the standard offer for 25,000 points is still available. It’s listed in the business category of our credit card page.

Madison – I’ve heard that American Express will trigger a Financial Review at the drop of a hat for this card specially, then demand a lot of paperwork to prove you’re a business before they’ll reopen. Otherwise they close it out and you lose your points.
That’s good to know for anyone considering this bonus!
I had this card once before and closed it, but haven’t had an Amex financial review yet (knock on wood!). I’ll let you know if I get one this time around…
