The American Express Business card was being offered just recently for no signup bonus but now they are offering 30,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $5,000 in purchases with your new card in the first 3 months following approval of your new card account.
What is new about this offer is that you get a statement credit for your initial Amazon Prime 1 yr membership fee (a $79 value) after you sign up for a new membership with your card and meet the spending requirement in the same time period.
I personally have Amazon Prime and I love it because of the free 2 day shipping on most products, you get free access to Amazon Instant Video, and you get the ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
Another good thing about this card is access to the OPEN Savings Benefit. As Gary at View from the Wing mentioned, you can get 5% back as a statement credit for Hyatt purchases and if you have a Milepoint Premium membership, you can get an additional 10% off gift card purchases. So in total this is a whopping 15% off Hyatt gift card purchases plus the points you get from this card.
These aren’t discussed as much but there are other OPEN Savings Benefits that you can check out here. Here you can also select if you would like to receive the discounts OR the additional bonus points. These include Hertz, Fedex, and OfficeMax.com.
The card comes with $0 annual fee waived the first year and $175 annually after that. You will get
- 3x points for purchases on airfare directly with the airline
- 2x points on gas stations
- 2x on US purchases made with select computer hardware, software,& cloud computing providers
- 1x on all other purchases
This card has seen better days with bonuses in the 50ks but this is currently the best offer out there so if you are wanting to include this in your next app-o-rama then feel free. I have had this card previously and I enjoyed it for a year then canceled it.
Disclosure: I do receive commission if you apply and are approved through my links. This is currently the best offer out there for this card. Thanks for your support and happy travels!
