[Update: The 75,000 point welcome bonus is expired.]

For the next six days, American Express Business Gold card is offering a 75,000 point welcome bonus to anyone who qualifies and spends $10,000 in the first four months. If it’s feasible to spend $10,000 in the next four months, then the card could be of value to you.

Here’s what comes with the card:

  • 3X points on airfare
  • 2X points on advertising, gas, and shopping
  • 1X points on other purchases

*There is a $175 annual fee, but it's waived for the first year. The card does have a 2.7% foreign transaction fee.

Caution: You will not qualify if you’ve had an American Express Business card within the last 12 months, but other personal Amex cards do no make you ineligible.

It’s rare for Amex to offer a welcome bonus for its business cards so if you need one and want to make some points, then this is a good offer. If you are one the fence or are not sure you can meet the minimum spend, consider other cards that require a significantly lower minimum spending requirement and also offer a good bonus.

Note: The bonus offer is only available until January 28, 2013
