Bonus Membership Rewards Points for Spend with Amex Business Cards
American Express has a new targeted Amex Offer for business credit cards. Big spenders can earn up to an extra 27,000 Membership Rewards points on everyday spend. The offer is probably worth it only for those who have it on a card like Blue Business Plus that already earns 2X.
Get 9,000 additional Membership Rewards points by using your enrolled Business Card to spend a minimum of $15,000+ in one or more eligible transactions. Must spend by 12/31/2019. Limit of 27,000 additional Membership Rewards points.
- Offer valid for payments made online, in-app or in-person at any merchant that accepts American Express.
- An “eligible purchase” means a purchase of at least $15,000 made with your enrolled Business Card by 12/31/19.
- Each time you make one or more eligible transactions totaling at least $15,000, you will receive 9,000 Membership Reward points.
- Limit of 27,000 additional Membership Rewards points per Card Member.
Amex Offers are an extra perk on all American Express credit cards, charge cards, and even prepaid cards. You can see these offers in your account online and you will usually get a statement credit or earn extra MR points for spending a certain amount at a specific merchant.
You will need to add the offer to a specific card, and then use that card to get the credit. To add offers to a card, log into your account online, scroll down to the “Amex Offers & Benefits” section and click “Add to Card” for offers that you plan to use.
You should add the offer to your preferred card. Amex Offers are now limited to just one per person, or maybe two if you are lucky. But Amex is being very strict about one per person rule and have sent out notices that they will claw back credits if you have used an offer multiple times. You can however use the Membership Rewards version and the statement credit version of the same offer without issues.
For third party Amex cards you can use this new website, American Express Connect, to check for offers and also add them to your cards.
If you have this Amex Offer on your Amex Blue Business Plus card, it could be a nice added bonus. The card already earns 2X on all purchases. If you spend $45K, you would get 117,000 Membership rewards points. Just keep in mind the annual limit of $50K for that card.
