Minimum $1000 spend in 3 months gets you 50k MR points (worth at least $500 in GC's or miles). Annual fee of $175 waived for first year.

Fill out info here (no need to enter SSN, just name and address) then the offer should show up to click through, was the first link shown for me. Don't know if there's a direct link and this probably won't last long. It's not targeted like some of the other offers I've seen so if you qualify it should be there.

Says you cannot have had a previous Premier Gold in last 12 months to get the bonus.

Thanks OP.

I've attached a screenshot showing the 50k pts offer at the start of the application page.

Anyone know where I can find a listing of the possible redemption options for this card?

Edit: Found it

The rest of the story...

"..or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days."

What about the $175 annual fee after first year? Or do you cancel after awhile and what does that do to your credit?

Can't believe I hadn't heard of this site before now, anyone have experience using them? I think it's especially valuable for cards that offer big signup bonuses in miles but have hard-to-use programs like Delta...

dealmaster00 said:   yeah great deal, i'll probably end up going to cash2rewards.com to get $600 out of the 50k points. thanks op!

is it rewards2cash.com you're referring to? If so, i assume you transfer the points to one of their accounts but we would still be at risk of getting our accounts closed for transferring points right

not sure what the best mileage program to convert to...

wwon717 said:   not sure what the best mileage program to convert to...

Singapore or Cathay if you are looking at some redemptions for travel in Asia
British Air for certain short-haul flights
ANA for staralliance redemptions
Not the easiest seats to find but KLM and Delta are also options

I just heard of Rewards2Cash.com and am interested. Not sure if they're legit...

approved instantly. Hope it's here by the next time I stop at Costco.

JumboRedGrunt said:   I just heard of Rewards2Cash.com and am interested. Not sure if they're legit...

It's legit. I have used it and there are quite a few amount of positive reviews out there. I'm not sure but it may be a one man operation, which is why the site looks the way it does.

dont see the offer after entering personal info. doing something wrong ?

Just worked for me.. no issues.. try again..Thanks, OP!

Thanks OP

Thanks - great find

Thanks. Deal of the year.

Instant approval, thank you.

Does it mean if you have a Costco AMEX card you are not eligible for the bonus?

Besides the 50K bonus, how is this card compares to others? It seems pretty orinary (by AMEX standards). Or am I amissing something?

ty op. instant approval

Approved instantly for all my family members. Thanks OP!

insta-approved here too.

Not much really. It's mostly for the bonus.

It says their system is not responding...maybe they shut down the offer?

So without laundering the points through a third party it looks like at best $250 of gift cards at a select group of merchants?

edit... not saying that $250 is bad in cards for spending $1k, just asking if I am missing a better way of using the points.

> It says their system is not responding...maybe they shut down the offer?

Same happened to me, but I tried again and it worked. I was automatically logged on AMEX on chrome, so I logged out myself. It could be your case as well.

I'm sure others here will know more than I do, but sometimes AMEX allows you transfer points to air miles on certain airlines (Delta?) at better than 1:1 ratios.

Depends on your spending pattern. If you pay out of pocket for flights, the best travel redemption will be transferring to travel partners. MR points should only be used this way IMO.

50k points will get you a $500 gift card.

Didn't work for me in IE, but did in Chrome. Instantly approved.

Have been using it as my primary card ever since, getting more MR points for spending.
Was probably going to close it out this Dec/Jan before the fee kicked in.
Today I noticed a credit of 15k points to my account.  
??
Not sure what this stems from.  Anybody have any idea?
Did I meet some sort of annual spending threshold to get more points?
Or maybe it's a mistake that they'll eventually correct...?

  15k bonus for hitting 30k spend.

  
Nice, thanks!
