Applying for the Card
Application Link (my referral)
Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility. Amex has a tool that will let you know whether you qualify for the bonus during the application process.
If you’re not sure whether you’ve had this card in the past, you can use this trick to find out. Sometimes cards that you’ve had more than 5-7 years ago, will no longer show up in your Amex history.
This is a great bonus, but it also requires a huge amount of spend within three months. You need to spend a total of $25,000 which is not easy to do for most people or small businesses. You can also make the bonus better if you can get a referral bonus from a friend or family friend. A referral bonus from the Amex Blue Business Plus card for example will earn you an extra 15,000 points. But be steer away from self referrals. Amex has been clawing back those bonuses.
