Not sure if this could help anyone, but I found this in my Amex today. Someone might find it useful. It only shows up on one of my Amex blue. 1/5 amex cards.

Offer valid when you pay with any American Express Credit or Charge Card. The promo is valid for eligible, first time purchasers of Yelp Ads; subject to additional terms and conditions (https://biz.yelp.com/tos/upgrades_en_us_20160928). Offer cannot be combined with any other promotions/offers/savings. Offer is not redeemable for cash and is not valid on previous purchases. Businesses that are in industries that are not eligible to advertise on Yelp pursuant to Yelp's own terms or policies may not be eligible for the offer.

It looks like it's an offer on Amex, usually it requires a regular card.

Wait, you're trying to figure out if $300 for free is worth $300? It's free. Also, if you have never advertised on Yelp before, take the free $300 then buy an additional $300 using this AMEX promotion to get 30,000 points.

As of June 2017, according to The Points Guy, 1 AMEX Membership Reward Point is worth 1.9 cents. So, if you take the 30,000 points and convert them into the dollar value, that's $570. Therefore, you are not only getting $600 worth of advertising on Yelp, but you're making - yes, MAKING - $270 on this deal, not including the revenue from the ads. How do you not see that as worth it?

Big thumbs up on this deal!

this is great

but also note there is a catch to redeeming the 30K as far as I can tell — Yelp only lets you advertise if you have a business that's reviewed on their site. So I can't find any way to advertise without having a small business that has reviews on Yelp. It's possible I'm missing something obvious here, in which case I hope someone can fill me in.

I am not certain as I quickly glanced over it, but I would assume it's correct. I really wish this applied to me, I would do this in a heartbeat! To all of you small business owners, if you are offered this AMEX promo, jump on it!
