New 100,000 point bonus for the Business Platinum from American Express Card

Not only did American Express bring out an increased offer on the American Express Business Gold Rewards Card today but they also increased the bonus on the Business Platinum Card® from American Express. The new public offer on the card sees provides a bonus of up to 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points.

The new publicly available welcome bonus offer is broken down as follows:

• New Business Platinum® Cardmembers  earn 80,000 Welcome Bonus points after you charge $6,000 in net purchases to your Card in your first 3 months of Cardmembership – enough to redeem for a $800 credit towards eligible purchases
• Plus, you can also earn 20,000 points after your 14 month card anniversary date when you make a purchase on the card between months 14 and 17

With this new bonus out Amex has also bumped up the refer a friend offer to 105,000 points on the card. Please reach out to us if you are interested in that offer.

Those 100,000 points work out to a value of no less than $1,000 but you do have to take into account you will be paying two years of annual fees to earn those points. That being said you also have to take into account all the other benefits on the card like earning 1.25 points on all purchases, the best airport lounge access benefit in the country, hotel elite statuses and more. Then you have the higher value redemption options such as converting to Aeroplan and British Airways - both of which we have minimum valuations of 1.5 cents per point which puts that welcome bonus at $1,500 but we have shown time and time again that you can easily get 2, 3 or 4+ cents of value from those programs putting the welcome bonus at $2,000, $3,000 or $4,000+ in value.
