I signed up for an AmEx promo with their Gold card at the beginning of the year. They where running a bonus point offer, 50K points if you spend $1000 in the first 3 months. Well I knew spending the $1000 was not going to be an issue.
I was happy to see that they awarded me the bonus points the other day, what a nice thing to see.
Point wise, if you use them for travel it works out well, in my case I am going to use them for some Gift Cards. Works out to $500 in Gift Cards. Wish I could do this promo more then once 🙂
