HOT OFFER ALERT!
American Express is currently offer 50,000 bonus points for the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card via CARDMATCHTM to those who are targeted. Some readers and bloggers are reporting again that America Express is now offering this bonus to those that weren’t previously targeted when this offer surfaced in November before Thanksgiving. So if you tried to access this offer previously through via CARDMATCHTM try it again and you might have better luck this time. It looks like they may have open up their target group. This is a great offer!
Several folks have emailed me about the 50,000 point bonus (after $1000 in spend within 3 months) for the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, introductory annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $175.
This offer was seen available on CARDMATCH on 12/12/13. In the past the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card has offered only 25,000 points or no bonus at all so this is a great deal.
WHAT TO DO:
- Go to CARDMATCHTM to see if you are targeted for the offer
- Enter your personal information. Note: If you are targeted the offer will appear. I’ve even heard reports that some people are targeted for a 100,000 Platinum Card as well as well.

Membership rewards points are very valuable because they can be used in so many ways. They can be transferred to several hotel and airline loyalty programs as well as use to book travel and reimburse yourself in a cash statement credit.
Also, Membership Rewards many times offer transfer bonuses where 50,000 points can turn into 65,000 or 70,000 transferred to another program. These promotions are always happening throughout the year.

There are so many options with Membership Rewards Points. That is why American Express Membership Rewards is one of my top two favorite programs. My other great love is the Chase Ultimate Rewards program. The key difference between these two programs and other credit card programs is the number of transfer partners. You aren’t stuck into a box with limited ways to spend your points. Learn more about Membership Rewards Program here.
Good luck! Hope some of you are targeted for this fabulous offer!
If you already have the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, I would recommend the Chase Sapphire Preferred. With the Chase Sapphire Preferred you earn Ultimate Rewards Points which are one of the most valuable points currently available. Learn more about the value of Ultimate Rewards points here.
Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card offers 40,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 in purchases within the first 3 months. With 40,000 bonus points, you can redeem for $500 towards airfare and hotel accommodations. You can earn an additional 5,000 bonus points after you add the first authorized user and make a purchase in the first 3 months from account opening. Earn 2x points on travel, 2x points on dining at restaurants, and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases. Plus, you get an Annual Points Dividend equal to 7% of the points earned on new purchases during the preceding year. Your points go far since you get 20% off travel when redeemed thru Ultimate Rewards. All Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders enjoy travel benefits and a direct access to a live adviser 24 hours a day. No foreign transaction fees, plus Chip and Signature enabled for international travel. The annual fee of $95 is waived for the first year of card ownership.
