Amex Costco True Earnings $25 Signup Bonus

Written by Nickel - 3 Comments

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

The TrueEarnings Card from Costco and American Express reward credit card was offering a $25 signup bonus (sadly this offer is no longer valid).

Here are current features of the card:

  • 3% cash back on gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, including at Costco, for purchases up to $4,000 per year (1% thereafter)
  • 2% cash back at U.S. restaurants; 2% cash back on eligible travel purchases; 1% cash back on other purchases, including at Costco
  • Cash back is earned only on eligible purchases. You will receive your cash back in the form of an annual reward coupon
  • The Two-In-One Card: it’s an American Express® Card and Costco membership card, with no annual fee for Costco members
  • Cardmembership offers benefits which include Purchase Protection* and Extended Warranty* * Underwritten by AMEX Assurance Company
  • Terms and restrictions apply.

The 2% cash back on eligible travel purchases and 2% cash back at U.S. restaurants are particularly attractive.

  1. I have been using this card for 2 years. It is excellent – I have earned a lot of money back in the form of an annual rebate check.


    You DO NOT have an annual fee IF YOU ARE A COSTO MEMBER. You will see that text on the left on the sign up sheet.

  2. The Small Business version of this card give’s you 5% cash-back on gas. You technically don’t need to own a business to get it either – the application only requires your SSN and not a Tax ID or anything like that for a business.

    I do photography on the side – infrequently – and I got the business card with no issues at all claiming the photography as my business.
