I was ineligible for the 75k offer from AmEx Biz Gold. I was feeling a bit bummed, but right now AmEx has the following offers for adding an AU to your account. Each offer is targeted, and requires the AU to spend $500 for Plat, or $1,000 (SPG and Hilton) in 90 days:
- 2,500 MR for each AmEx Personal Platnium
- 2,500 SPG for each SPG Card AU
- 10,000 HHonors for each HHonors Surpass AU
I went ahead and signed up for Plastiq (Use this link here or my code 674873) and just used my AU’s CC numbers to do my normal spend and pay for my regular mortgage, lawn care, child care bills. Using the link makes $500 fee free for such payments. This internal referrals have kept me from getting any new cards outside of AmEx. Which is a brilliant way to make AmEx’s new account numbers look good without really trying.
