If you are targeted for the 50,000 American Express Gold Card Rewards offer it will appear under “special offers”.


American Express has been releasing higher limited time offers recently and targeted offers like this one. Over the past year, it has become harder to get in on the higher offers, so if you have been waiting for one from Amex and are targeted for the 50,000 offer this is one to consider.

The current public offer is 25,000 Membership Rewards after spending $2,000 (OFFER EXPIRED) in the first three months, so this targeted offer is twice the bonus for half the spending. With the targeted offer you will receive 50,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $1,000 in 3 months.

Apart from earning a better welcome bonus on this card, for every dollar spent on the card you will earn:

  • 3X points for flights booked with airlines

  • 2X points at US gas stations and US supermarkets

  • 1X points on other purchases

If you are a big spender and spend more than $30,000 in one calendar year, you will also earn a 15,000 Membership Rewards bonus.

Remember that per the terms and conditions, you are not eligible for this offer if you have had a personal version of the ZYNC, Green, Gold card, or Platinum card within the last 90 days.

Offer terms: “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days.” 

Looking into earning more Membership Rewards points is a great strategy now that United has devalued their chart. The points are some of the most flexible points apart from Chase’s UR points and can be transferred to 17 airline partners that are in all three global alliances. You also have the option to transfer to a handful of hotel partners.


Are you targeted for the offer? Are you going to apply this time around or wait for a better offer?
