To be eligible to earn the points associated with this offer you must charge $10,000 (the "Threshold Amount") of eligible purchases during the first three months of membership on an eligible Business Gold Card from American Express. Eligible purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Employee Card Members on a single Card Account. Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases to meet the Threshold Amount do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases of traveler's checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards, person-to-person payments, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Limit one offer per Card Account. Offer may not be combined with any other special offer. Your Card account must not be canceled or past due at the time of fulfillment of any offers. The 90,000 points will be credited to your Membership Rewards account 8-12 weeks after you have met the Threshold Amount.
If we in our sole discretion determine that you have engaged in abuse, misuse, or gaming in connection with the welcome offer in any way or that you intend to do so (for example, if you applied for one or more cards to obtain a welcome offer (s) that we did not intend for you; if you cancel or downgrade your account within 12 months after acquiring it; or if you cancel or return purchases you made to meet the Threshold Amount), we may not credit Membership Rewards® Points to, we may freeze Membership Rewards® Points credited to, or we may take away Membership Rewards® Points from your account. We may also cancel this Card account and other Card accounts you may have with us.
You can earn 90,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $10,000 or more on eligible purchases on your Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership starting from the date your account is approved. In rare instances, your period to spend $10,000 may be shorter than three months if there is a delay in receiving your Card. Also, purchases may fall outside of the three months period in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped). Points will be credited to your Membership Rewards account within 8-12 weeks after the last eligible purchase you made to meet the Threshold Amount appears on your monthly billing statement.
If your application is not received by 12/31/2021, we will not process your application even if we later receive your application. American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time.
Terms and Conditions for the Membership Rewards® program apply. Visit membershiprewards.com/terms for more information. Participating partners and available rewards are subject to change without notice.

4X Retroactive Bonus
How the 4X Points Benefit Works
With your American Express® Business Gold Card, you get at least one Membership Rewards® point for each dollar you spend on your Card for eligible purchases. You also get 3 additional points per dollar (for a total of 4 points), on the 2 categories (of 6) where you spend the most each billing cycle, up to the first $150,000 in combined eligible purchases from these 2 categories each calendar year. Eligible purchases in excess of $150,000 in a calendar year will receive only one point per dollar spent.
Determining Your Top 2 Categories
To calculate your top 2 categories each billing cycle, we use your posted account transactions that fall into the 6 categories below and issue additional points based on your 2 highest categories of total spend less returns and credits in that same billing cycle. You will only earn 3 additional points in 2 categories each billing cycle even if you have equal spend in more than 2 categories.
The 6 categories that qualify for additional points are: (1) airfare on a scheduled flight charged directly with passenger airlines (charter flights and private jet flights are excluded); (2) advertising purchased in the U.S. to promote your business online, on television, or on the radio; (3) computer hardware, software, and cloud computing purchases in the U.S. made directly from select technology providers (the current list of select technology providers is available at: americanexpress.com/rewards-info); (4) gasoline at gas stations located in the U.S. (superstores, supermarkets and warehouse clubs that sell gasoline are not considered gas stations); (5) restaurants located in the U.S.; and (6) shipping services purchased in the U.S. for courier, postal, and freight.
Eligible purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Additional terms and restrictions apply. Merchants are assigned codes based on what they primarily sell. We group certain merchant codes into categories that are eligible for additional points. A purchase with a merchant will not earn additional points if the merchant’s code is not included in an additional points category. You may not receive additional points if we receive inaccurate information or are otherwise unable to identify your purchase as eligible for an additional points category. For example, you may not receive additional points when: a merchant uses a third-party to sell their products or services; or a merchant uses a third-party to process or submit your transaction to us (e.g., using mobile or wireless card readers); or you choose to make a purchase using a third-party payment account or make a purchase using a mobile or digital wallet. For questions about additional Points on a purchase, call the number on the back of your Card. Please visit americanexpress.com/rewards-info for more information about rewards.
25% Airline Bonus Disclosure
To use Pay with Points, you must charge your eligible airfare purchase through American Express Travel to a Membership Rewards® program-enrolled American Express® Card. Points will be debited from your Membership Rewards account, and credit for corresponding dollar amount will be issued to the American Express Card account used. If points redeemed do not cover entire amount, the balance of purchase price will remain on the American Express Card account. Points must be used at the time of booking. Pay with Points requires a minimum redemption of 5,000 points.
Business Gold Card Members will receive 2.5 extra points for every 10 points they redeem for either a First or Business class flight on any airline, or for flights with their selected qualifying airline using Membership Rewards Pay with Points through American Express Travel (25% Airline Bonus), up to 250,000 bonus points per calendar year, per each Membership Rewards account. For First or Business class flights on a Card Member's selected qualifying airline, the Card Member will still receive only 2.5 extra points for every 10 points redeemed. Card Member must select a qualifying airline at https://global.americanexpress.com/card-benefits/detail/airline-choice/business-gold.

No Preset Spending Limit
No Preset Spending Limit means your spending limit is flexible. Unlike a traditional card with a set limit, the amount you can spend adapts based on factors such as your purchase, payment, and credit history.
Pay Over Time Option
Eligible Charges: A charge made by you or any additional Card Member on your account is eligible to be paid over time if it is equal to or more than $100 and is approved by us. Charges under $100 will be due in full each month. The following types of charges are ineligible for the Pay Over Time option: Cash and Express Cash, American Express® Travelers Cheques and other cash equivalents, certain insurance premiums, casinos and other gambling transactions, any fees owed to American Express except foreign transaction fees, and other transactions designated by us.
Pay Over Time Settings: The Pay Over Time option on your account is initially set to On. There are two settings, On and Off. When set to On, eligible charges will be placed in your Pay Over Time balance. When set to Off, no new charges will be included in your Pay Over Time balance. You can change this setting by visiting your online account or calling the number on the back of your Card.
Interest on your Pay Over Time balance: For transactions added to your Pay Over Time balance, we will charge interest beginning on the date of each transaction. We will not charge interest on charges added to your Pay Over Time balance if you pay your account Total New Balance by the due date each month. You must pay at least the Minimum Payment Due by the Payment Due Date each month to keep your account in good standing. The Minimum Payment Due includes all Pay in Full charges, any interest accrued on your account and a portion of your Pay Over Time balance.
Pay Over Time Limit: We assign a Pay Over Time Limit to your account. Your Pay Over Time Limit is the amount you may carry as a balance. We will not place any charge into a Pay Over Time balance if it causes your Pay Over
Time balance to go over your Pay Over Time Limit. Any charges that would cause the total balance to exceed your Pay Over Time Limit will be due in full. We may increase or decrease the amount of your Pay Over Time Limit and will tell you if we change that amount. Your Pay Over Limit may be different than the total amount you are allowed to spend on your Card.
No Pre-Set Spending Limit: No Preset Spending Limit means your spending limit is flexible. Unlike a traditional Card with a set limit, the amount you can spend adjusts based on factors such as your purchase, payment, and credit history.
