It wasn’t too long ago that American Express refreshed the Green card. It went from a completely useless card that you would keep as a downgrade option (but still pay an annual fee for) to something that’s pretty useful. The only unfortunate thing with American Express’s charge cards has to do with their public sign up bonuses. They’re just so small!
And with American Express’ once in a lifetime language, it’s crucial that you get the biggest sign up bonus that you possibly can. Well, this new offer may be one of those Golden (Green…en?) opportunities!
If you are able to apply for the American Express Green card through a referral, you may be able to get up to to 60,000 points. There are two offers which are detailed below:
- If you spend $2,000 within the first 6 months, you’ll receive 50,000 Membership Reward points
- If you spend $2,000 within the first 6 months, you’ll receive 60,000 Membership Reward points
This is certainly a huge offer, especially for the Green card. The current public offer is 45,000 points which is seven higher than the normal 30,000. If we compare these new offers to 30,000, then we are basically doubling. If we value the Membership Reward points at 2 cents per point, the 60,000 point offer is worth $1,200! That’s 60% return on the send you would do for the sign up bonus, not including the additional points you’d earn for meeting that spend requirement.
The even sweeter part of this deal is that you’ll have 6 months to cover the spend instead of the usual 3. If you are seeing this offer, and you’ve been remotely interested in the Green card, these offers are really good!
