There are some offers that make sense. And there is this one for my Business Gold card:
First, who would take the $210 statement credit? That is the epitome of stupidity. Next, how successful does Amex believe my company is? If I had 50k in business expenses, that would mean I’m drenched in cash or MSing. And if I were MSing, I would be shutdown and have to call BachuwaLaw. Curious, I pulled up my spending for 2017 on this card.
Barely cracked 15k. And that was in a year.
But wait, there’s more!
Spend another 15k and get $60!
This offer may work for the big spenders but not for little guys like me.
Note: This analysis doesn’t even take into account the benefit of putting that much spend on other cards.
