Amex Gold Card, 75K Welcome Bonus Available Through Pre-Qualified Offers
I wrote earlier today about the new increased offer for the American Express Gold Card. You can earn 60,000 Membership Rewards points for spending $4,000 within 6 months, and it is available through referrals. That means a friend or family member can net a referral bonus for referring you. That is an additional bonus that could go as high as 25K, depending on the card you refer from.
But if you have no one that can refer you, there is an option do to better than 60K. Some people are seeing a 75,000 welcome offer through American Express Pre-Qualifed Offers. The requirements are still the same, $4,000 spend within 6 months. But you are getting an extra 15,000 points if you see this targeted offer.

This is the best ever welcome offer that we have seen for the Amex Gold Card. Unless you are getting a 20K or 25K referral bonus for a friends, then this is the best way to go if you get the offer to show up.
Let me know if it works for you.
