Most people will be able to replicate this deal if you follow the instruction below. Before you decide to down vote, please PM me if you cannot replicate the deal - and I'll do my best to help you. This card comes with a $250 annual fee.
If you're looking for a no annual fee card, the Amex Everyday Card (no fee) is also offering a 25,000 points, Amex Blue Cash Everyday (no fee) is offering $250 cashback and the Platinum Card ($550 annual fee) is offering a 75,000 points. I personally like the MR cards (Gold, Platinum or Amex Everyday as they're offering $15 off $30, 20% off etc. from time to time when you use a single point on Amazon.com)
You can see all available signup offers here:
Open Chrome or Edge in Incognito or Private mode. Copy/paste the following URL into the address bar. Look for the verbiage for 50,000 bonus points after spending $2000 in first 3 months after card opening. Only proceed with your application if you see the 50,000 points verbiage:
If you do not see the 50,000 points verbiage, clear your browser cache and re-launch your browser and try again. You may also want to retry with a different browser. If this doesn't work, don't lose your hope just yet. See if Option 2 will work for you
Please note, mobile browser don't seem to work (at least for me). I recommend trying a desktop browser.
If any of your friend, family or acquaintance hold ANY Amex card (doesn't have to be Amex Gold) - have them refer you. Once you click on the link that you get from your friend, click on All Personal Card regardless of which card the link shows you. Please note, this appears to be greyed out once you are on the link, however, it will still work and you'll find a bunch of card with better than advertised signup bonus offers.
Your friend will also benefit if you follow this route (depending on what card they hold, they will receive anywhere from $75 to 20,000 points).
If neither option worked for you, leave a comment on this thread. I am sure fellow SD'ers will be able to help out in any way possible.

I fly business class to Europe and Asia mostly; hence value MR points at least 5 cents a piece. If you're interested in how to maximize the MR points value, feel free to chime in and I'll be more than happy to spill my secrets on this thread.
For hotel and gift cards, MR points are not that attractive of a redemption. You can still get anywhere from 0.67 to 1.5 cents per point value.
