Reading tons of blogs so you don’t have to!

-Today only: American Express Business Platinum Card 50,000 point sign-up bonus

Personally, I’m going to pass on this. The $450 fee on this card does not make it worth it for me on this. I had the Personal AMEX Platinum last year and really didn’t use many of the benefits, but it’s a personal decision. It might be worth it for you. I just can’t see spending it especially since American Express’ transfer partners are not amazing. However, AMEX IS soliciting people for a 50k sign up bonus for the Business Gold Rewards Card after 5k spend in 90 days, which I will likely apply for if I get an offer in the mail.

Had this card about a year ago, so I don’t think I’m eligible to get it again this soon. Also, I’m eyeing getting the Ink Bold card soon instead!

Good points bonus, but beware of Virgin’s fuel surcharges!
