American Express is Targeting Some Customers with a 70K Bonus for the Gold Card

Amex Gold card 70K offer

Amex Gold Card 70K Offer

The Amex Gold Card great product and an enhancement from the previous version. It earns 4X at restaurants, which is probably the best rate out there if you value Membership Rewards. It also earns 4X at supermarkets, a rate only topped by a couple of cards. You can read my review here. Now some people are receiving mailers with a targeted offer for a whopping 70K Membership Rewards points.


  • Earn 70,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $4,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months of Card Membership.

Annual fee for the American Express® Gold Card is $250.

There is no link for this offer. It was sent out by mail to some lucky customers. A couple of people on r/amex report receiving it.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

The normal welcome bonus for the Amex Gold Card is 35,000 Membership Rewards points, but we often see an increased offer for 50,000 points. So this offer is clearly much better. If you did receive a mailer directly, then this is a no-brainer if you are eligible for the bonus. Hopefully some of you were lucky. Let me know if you received this Amex Gold Card 70K offer!
