American Express: Gold Rewards Card – FREE 25K Welcome Points = FREE Flight to Anywhere in North America!

AMEX Gold Rewards Ad

I’ve been blogging deals for a long time and this one of the best freebise and travel offers that I’ve ever seen! This is only the second travel rewards card that enticed me to sign-up and share with my friends and family.

For a limited time, American Express’ Friends & Family promotion is offering an incredible 25,000 FREE Bonus Membership Rewards Points when you sign-up for the AMEX Gold Rewards Card!  That’s their highest points offer and enough points for a free round-trip flight to anywhere in North America! American Express is also waiving the annual fee for the first year ($150 value) which means there’s zero cost to you making this an unbelievable freebie! All you need to do is charge $500 in purchases to your card within the first three months of card membership. This is a special limited-time offer so don’t miss out. Sign-up now before the offer ends. The exclusive offer is valid for Canadians only.

AMEX Membership Rewards points are very flexible and can be transferred one-to-one to Aeroplan or a bunch of other loyalty programs. Here’s a full list of all the Loyalty Programs that you can transfer your points to.

The best part about this offer and how I’ve been able to earn over a million points, is you can refer your friends & family and get 10K bonus miles for each approved referral! It’s easy to get referrals because the card sells itself.

You might think that it’s just another credit card offer, and normally, I would agree with you, but with this deal, in just the last 11 months alone, I’ve been able to earn over a million points, enough for multiple around-the-world-trips for my entire family!

I took some convincing before I took this offer, and I’m incredibly glad that I did. Here’s why this deal is awesome:

  • Get 25,000 free Membership Rewards Points (can transfer 1-1 to Aeroplan)! That’s enough points to get a free round-trip flight to anywhere in North America!  Or save up more points and travel to other destinations for free!  See where else you can fly with Flight Reward Chart.
  • The first year is absolutely free ($150 value), so if you decide the card is not for you, just cancel it and get keep the 25,000 free bonus points! You can cancel the card at any time without penalty and keep all your points.
  • AMEX is a charge card, not a credit card, which means that it doesn’t hit your credit score as hard as a credit card would.  A charge card only does a soft credit pull. The difference between the two is that you must pay off your balance every month, or else you’ll be charged a higher interest rate.  If you always pay off your card, then it doesn’t even matter!
  • The very best part of this deal, and the reason I’ve earned over a million points is that AMEX has a very generous referral program.  If you refer someone to sign up for the card under you, you get an extra 10,000 free bonus points for each approved referral!  There is no limit on what you can earn! You’ll get your own referral link after you sign-up and activate the card. Note: You’ll only get the referral bonus if you refer the same card you own (Ie. You can only refer the AMEX Gold Rewards Card if you have the AMEX Gold Rewards Card).

If you consider all the points, this is a deal you can’t ignore! Worst case, you take the 25,000 free points and cancel the card before the first year. Best case, you refer plenty of friends and family and manage to rack up your very own round-the-world-trip! My original plan was just to sign-up for the card, get the free bonus points, and then refer my wife for the extra free points, but a great deal sells itself and it’s been astonishingly easy to get referrals.
