Changes to American Express’ Referral Program

American Express has put a limit on the number of referral points that one can earn in a calendar year. The limit is essentially set at 15 per credit card per calendar year. At first thought, I felt that it sucks that there is a limit. But if this limits preserves most of the sign up bonuses, then I am all for it. I just hope we don’t see devaluations to the current sign up bonuses.
