Kudos to American Express!

American Express has really stepped up its game to take some market share. Below are the credit cards with higher than usual sign up bonuses:

American Express Platinum Card

  • $699 annual fee
  • Earn a 60,000 sign up bonus points when referred (50,000 without referral) when you spend $1,000 in the first three months

American Express Gold Rewards Card

  • $150 annual fee (waived the first year)
  • Earn 25,000 Membership Rewards points when you spend $500 in the first 3 months

American Express AeroplanPlus Platinum Card

  • $499 annual fee
  • Earn a 51,000 sign up bonus when referred (30,000 without referral) when you spend $1,000 in the first three months

American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card

  • $120 annual fee (waived the first year)
  • Earn a 30,000 sign up bonus when referred (20,000 without referral) when you spend $500 in the first three months

American Express AIR MILES Reserve Credit Card

  • $299 annual fee
  • Earn 2,500 bonus points (if you apply before April 30, 2014, usually 1,450 points) when you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months

American Express Air Miles Platinum Credit Card

  • $65 annual fee (waived the first year)
  • Earn a 1,250 (with referral) points sign up bonus (or 1,000 without referral) when you spend $500 in the first three months

American Express SPG Preferred Guest Credit Card

  • $120 annual fee
  • Earn 21,000 points (with referral) or 20,000 (without referral) points when you spend $500 in the first 3 months of having this card

There are so many choices to choose from, hopefully you can take advantage of at least one card.

I am so glad that one company has decided to take the lead on stepping up their game on many different products. Most Canadian banks will have a strong promotion on one or two cards only at a time. American Express has taken this business to a whole new level by improving a wide variety of products. I just wanted to make sure that American Express’ initiative did not go unnoticed.

Kudos to American Express!!
