AmEx Premier Rewards Gold Card 25k Signup Bonus

Written by Nickel - 8 Comments

Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

Editor’s Note: Thank you for your interest, this offer expired and is no longer available.

It’s back! American Express offered a 25k point signup bonus in the past, but not for a while. I recently received word, however, that they’ve revised this promo with a spend requirement, offering a 25,000 Membership Rewards® point Welcome Bonus for the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card. New Cardmembers must enroll in Membership Rewards® Program to start earning points. There is a introductory annual fee of $0 for the first year, then $175.

In case you’re not aware, Membership Rewards points are quite flexible, and can be cashed in for flights, or the 25k points can be converted into store gift cards at a variety of stores (Home Depot being my favorite).

NOTE: Offers change frequently; please be sure to check the offer website to ensure that all details and information are correct.

  1. Last year AMEX was paying $300 for people to close accounts — now they are paying them to open accounts.

    Here’s a business idea: don’t pay your customers to go somewhere else, then you wouldn’t have to pay to get them back.

  2. It’s Back? It’s BEEN back for a while. My husband and I have both been getting this offer every other week in the mail for the past 4 months!

  3. Costco’s Amex is a much better deal. Completely free with Costco membership and they pay you cash money at the end of the year based on how much you spent on the card. No need to worry about $175 annual fees, (who pays that???), and no need to worry about what to do with “points”.

    I received over $1,300 cash this year. Woot!

  4. This deal looks awesome. I’m going to sign up for myself and my wife and cancel the cards after we get our gift cards. An easy $500 is hard to pass up on.

  5. Hmm.. well scratch that. The web page has changed since this morning. Guess that I missed the boat. Now its only 10k bonus points for first purchase.

  8. Nickel,

    I would just like to thank you for your diligence in finding and posting great deals like this. My points got cleared immediately after clearing $1,000 on the cards and I have $250 in gift cards and another $250 in the mail. Now all I have to do is close is close the accounts in a couple months to avoid the annual fee.

    Thanks Again!
