American Express Business Gold Rewards Card back to First Year Free and sign up bonus increased to 30,000 points!

A great small business rewards card offering is back to its greatness that was seen six months ago and now it is even better. American Express must have felt the pinch back in May after taking away the first year free on the American Express Business Gold Rewards Card
 as that offer is back and with a sign up bonus increased to 30,000 Membership Rewards points! Those points can be converted to 30,000 Aeroplan Miles or Avios! (For free basically outside of the spend required!) Tie this into some other first year free cards and you can net yourself 65,000 Aeroplan Miles or British Airways Executive Club Avios for free! See our post here for more details

Although it is a Business card many individuals have had success applying for and receiving the card simply by making themselves the ‘business entity’ making this a key card for the 'travel hackers' out there looking to maximize rewards from credit card applications. The only thing you have to be aware of is the spend requirement to get the sign up bonus which is $5,000 in three months so some people may find this hard to achieve.

Whether you choose to use the 30,000 points via TripFlex for a $300 travel credit or convert to Aeroplan or Avios, this update to the card is a great enhancement!

Here are the details for the American Express Business Gold Rewards Card
• Earn a Welcome Bonus of 30,000 points when you charge $5,000 in purchases to your Card in your first three months of Cardmembership. That’s enough to redeem for a $300 TripFlex™ rewards statement credit to use towards eligible travel purchases charged to your Card.
