First off, when you sign up for a new Fedex account, you will see a box offering benefits for having an American Express Business Gold account. When you click on the “learn more” tab, these two offers pop up:

amex biz

25k MR points for Amex Premier personal card and 50k MR points for the Amex Biz Gold! I couldn’t find another 50k offer currently (although I didn’t really search too hard). If you know of a similar offer currently available, please post below. Here is the direct link. Also remember, the Amex Biz Gold gets you an additional discount through the Amex OPEN program. You get either 5% cash back or 2 additional MR points for each dollar spent with this card at Fedex, for certain products.


Also, if you’re a USAA member, you can get discounted shipping from, up to 28% off of personal shipping within the US, or up to 40% off business shipping in the US. Here is the link to take you to the USAA Fedex website, where you can sign up using your fedex login, or sign up for a new account if you don’t have one.

    There is a 75k deal available if you use an incognito browser window with the basic Amex page – it’s been posted on Flyertalk for a while.

    Here is the thread @Greg is talking about: I just tried the links in both normal and incognito modes, and it wouldn’t go through for me. Do you have a different 75k link?

    I think this hobby has gotten all of us a little spoiled… I received the Biz Gold card offer last night with 50k points.. I scoffed.. waiting for the 75k offer 🙂 h

  4. Beck says:

    I might do the 75k deal but then that would make me ineligible for the 100k plat biz, yes? Of course, I’m still waiting to be targeted for that.

  5. Nothing special about 50k might as well go for the platinum 100k

  6. augias says:

    @Greg — yes I got the 75k offer that way last month. However it requires $10k spend in 3 months, rather than just $5k.

  7. Andy says:

    @Howtofreetravel – is there a reliable way to get the 100k offer? I tried on cardmatch and it didn’t show up. Any other ways you know of?

  9. […] The Military Frequent Flyer reports there’s a better offer available for the American Express Business Gold Rewards card.  You’ll get 50,000 American Express Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in new purchases in the 1st 3 months. […]

    can you get the bonus if you have had this card before?

  11. Andy says:

    @danny – yes you can, although you need to have gone at least 24 months between bonuses. This is only good for amex business cards. On personal cards, you can only lifetime get a one time bonus.
