Thread Details

I recall that about 6 months ago AMEX changed their policy to give out only ONE signup per person, per product for lifetime. However, does this apply to targeted bonuses?

Thing is, USPS dropped off a targeted offer for 75,000 MR points on $5000 spend in 3 months for AMEX Business Gold, 1st year's annual fee waived. I've had other offers for 50,000 points on $5000 spend, so this is 25,000 points sweeter. However, I had a Business Gold in 2013 (since closed, obviously).

I've looked through all the documentation and cannot find any "one offer per lifetime" verbiage that you tend to find on other AMEX products.

Any input?

Usually you can get the business bonuses once every 12 months, but I believe the targeted offers can be had even if you've gotten the bonus within the last year.

This has been discussed at length at sites like SD and Flyertalk.


Yes, AmEx Personal card sign-up bonuses are now 1 per lifetime per card. You can still double-up with separate spouse card, but that's it.


Business cards, for now, are still churnable every 12 months, so you should be OK for this pass. However, I wouldn't be surprised if AmEx clamps down on these too, at least for non-incorporated entities, but for now, enjoy!
