It’s been a long time since American Express has had any decent offers. If you’ve been wanting to get some American Express Rewards points, this is your ‘golden’ opportunity.
You have an opportunity to get 25,000 American Express Rewards points from the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card. Sign up for the card and spend $2,000 in the first three months od Card membership.
The standard offer (and as far as I can tell, the best publicly available offer) is 15,000 points.
To be clear, this is a good offer, just not fantastic. American Express hasn’t had much of anything lately to get excited about, so at least this is a step in the right direction.

Let’s talk for a moment about the value of American Express Rewards Points.
There is no doubt that with the loss of United from the program, these points have devalued over the last year.
However, the advantage of American Express Rewards points is that they often run transfer bonuses. For example, right now you can get a 30% bonus when you transfer to British Airways. That means you could end up with 32,500 British Airways Avios miles by signing up for this card.
Delta is also a transfer partner, and they do frequently run transfer bonuses as well.
This card is actually really good, too!
I think this is the best part of the promotion.
My wife currently has the Premier Rewards Gold card, and one of the things I really like about it is the opportunity to get 3 points per dollar spent on airfare. If you travel a lot or buy lots of airfare, you won’t find a better card for earning airfare bonus points.
You’ll get double points on gas and groceries and a point per dollar on everything else.
