Earlier, we reported an increased public offer on the Amex Business Gold card. A friend then pointed out that redditors had reported a fantastic targeted offer out on the Business Gold that’s good for 90,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $10,000 on eligible purchases in the first three months. While those playing in 2-player mode may come out a bit better off with referral points, this deal could certainly be very attractive for some.

This is a terrific offer for the Business Gold card and the additional 20K points offered here over the public offer certainly may be worth more to some folks than the $150 credit for US shipping purchases and $150 credit for US advertising purchases that are found on that public offer.
If you are playing in 2-player mode and have never had the Business Gold card before, you may be better off having Player 1 refer Player 2 to pick up even more total points between the two of you. However, one nice thing about the targeted offer above is that it looks like there is no lifetime language in the offer. It’s always worth double checking the terms before you apply, but that might make a difference for some folks.
As noted above, after clicking through to open the page and clicking “Add Business Gold”, you will be prompted to log in to see if you are eligible for the offer. If you receive a message saying the offer is no longer available or you get redirected to other offers, you are not targeted.
Keep in mind that an advantage here is that this card won’t add to one’s 5/24 count and it provides a nice bonus.
