The 75k Membership Rewards bonus on the Business Gold Card from American Express Open is back until March 8 14 (according to the terms and conditions) if you can spend $10k in the next four months on the card according to Dan’s Deals.

This is a great deal if you spend tons, or you manufacture tons of spend. It’s not a great deal if you don’t.

I forewent an identical deal in favor of 50k Membership Rewards after $5k in spending several months ago to avoid having to hit $10k in spending.

Here’s Bill’s rundown of the identical deal from January 25.

My Advice

Don’t change your app-o-rama schedule for this card. The offer comes around frequently, so wait for a better time for you.

Don’t stretch yourself to meet the minimum spending requirement. Play the game at your comfort level.

  1. Thanks for the caveat on overstretching yourself. Taking on too much minimum spend can be hazardous to your financial health, but I see few warnings about it.

  2. Hrmm I wonder if this card, like the Chase Ink cards, you can get more than 1 copy of it if you have different businesses. hrmm. I had this card…canceled it a month ago but wondering if i could go for it again as a different business…any idea?
