[3X choices: ⚬ Airfare purchased directly from airlines ⚬ U.S. purchases for advertising in select media ⚬ U.S. purchases at gas stations ⚬ U.S. purchases for shipping ⚬ U.S. computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers. 3X and 2X apply to first $100,000 in purchases in each of the 5 categories per year, 1X point per dollar thereafter.

Quick Thoughts

This is a great offer if you can get it. As Sam at Milenomics notes, those thinking long-term can also consider the chance that you could see an upgrade offer for the Business Platinum card down the road. For example, I opened my Business Gold Rewards card under a similar offer a few years ago. A few months later, despite already holding a Business Platinum card, I received an offer to upgrade my Business Gold Rewards card that did not have lifetime language. While you certainly can’t count on an upgrade offer, it can be a nice way to stack a couple of good offers if it happens.

Speaking of lifetime language, be sure to check your offer terms as you may be excluded from earning the intro offer if you have or have had this card before. Also, while we recently reported that there is a new qualification tool that pops up to let you know when you are not eligible to earn the welcome bonus (See: Answered: Amex will tell you in advance if you’re not eligible for welcome bonus), reports are that this tool is only working for consumer cards, not yet for business cards like this one.

If you are targeted, this is the best offer on this card in recent memory — it’s certainly worth consideration if you are eligible. Thanks to a great list of Amex Transfer partners, you have a lot of good options for redeeming awards if you are looking to turn these points into premium cabin travel.

Can you post a direct link to the offer (the address the ad links to)? Sometimes the pop-up does not appear even when one is targeted by Amex (I have had this happen), so it is worth trying the link for anyone.

I had the targeted offer, switched to another AMEX card that I was trying to make a payment on, came back and the offer was gone. I tried AMEX chat to get the offer, but they were no help.

Try the link David posted below. That should probably work for you if you were targeted.

Thank you – that is indeed the link – @Bob, you should be able to try this link. Sadly I was not targeted this time. If not targeted, it’ll just error out after you log in.
