Amex Business Gold Card, Targeted 50K Offer with No Lifetime Language
American Express has emailed many customers today with an offer to sign up for the Business Gold Card. This is yet another push to get business customers to sign up for new business products, after the 100K offers that were sent out for the Business Platinum card a few days ago. While this 50K Business Gold Card offer is not the best we have seen, it has no lifetime language.

This 50K Business Gold Card offer is a great opportunity for those who have the card in the past, since they can get the bonus once again. The offer is targeted, so check your emails to see if you received an offer. It could be worth checking your Amex accounts as well. You might see a pop-up or a banner with the offer.
Even if you have not had the card in the past, the 50K offer is better than the current public offer of 35K. But it’s best to apply through a referral if you have a friend or family member who can refer you and earn a big referral bonus up to 30K.
