New American Express Cobalt Card welcome bonus offer – Up to 30,000 points + 10x points for purchases

It’s been sometime since we’ve seen a boost to the welcome bonus offer for the number one ranked American Express Cobalt Card. Technically speaking on the points side of things the welcome bonus hasn’t changed. It is still 2,500 bonus points per month when spend at least $500 each month for the first 12 months of the having the card. That’s 30,000 points in total. But now if you apply for the card between now and January 13, 2021 they have added a boost for purchases:

Apply by January 13, 2021 and you can get access to your first Cobalt Perk:
earn a total of 10x the points for every $1 on eligible purchases made
at (up to $500) in your first 3 months of Cardmembership

10x points on $500 of Amazon spending equates to 5,000 Membership Rewards Select points. Those points alone are worth $50 towards travel or $35 cash back when redeeming for Points for Purchases.
