Increased Offers Galore: Get 70K-100K For Amex Gold Business Card
There have been a few new offers launched on the American Express Business Gold card that could net you between 70,000 Membership Rewards points and 100,000 Membership Rewards points. It all depends on which offer is available to you and what kind of stacking you can do. These are all higher than the normal 35K-60K offers, but the required spending is also double too.
Update 8/26/21: I have once again been targeted, for the 4th time now, via a traditional mailer. Many people are also seeing upgrade and expand your membership offers for the Amex Business Platinum.
Update 5/14/21: More people have been targeted, be sure to check your Amex Offers. I was able to sign up for one even though I just got the Gold Business card late last year. I also did not get the pop up on it even though I had for regular offers.
UPDATE 4/20/21: There is a new offer at the 80K level I added in but it requires a lot lower spend. It doesn’t come with the credits though so you will have to decide which offer fits your needs best.
Update 3/25/21: More people have been targeted via regular mail for the 80K-90K offers without lifetime language. My wife received one in the mail and multiple people reported similar in the Miles to Memories Facebook Group.

80K – 90K Targeted Offers
There are also targeted offers for 80,000 or 90,000 bonuses after spending $10,000 within the first 3 months of card membership. It appears these links have no lifetime language as well so perfect for anyone who has had the card in the last 6-7 years. Be sure to double check the language before applying though. Here are the links to see if you are targeted:
If you get this response it means you were not targeted for the offer:
We are sorry This offer is no longer available. If you’d still like to apply for a Business Card from American Express click here.
The points offered are higher with these offers but I believe you miss out on the $300 credits of the public offer. If you know you will easily max those out that may be the better option.
100K Possible Offer
How about getting your cake and eating it too with the old 2 player one two step!? Benjy was able to get the increased 70K offer, with the $300 in statement credits, via referral for his wife. And because he used a 30K referral from his personal Amex Gold card he will net a total of 100,000 Membership Rewards points AND the $300 in credits.
There is one thing to consider going this route, the 30,000 point referral will be taxed at a $300 valuation. That could make it less valuable to you than the 90K offer etc. Most likely not but something to be aware of for sure.
The Amex Gold Business card has a lot of offers to choose from right now. I grabbed it when there was a 60K offer available via referral which only required $5,000 in spend. I probably like that offer a little bit better since the spend was more manageable. But if you know you can hit the higher requirement, and can max out the $300 in credits, these new offers are tough to beat.
