Amex Increases Reward Earnings For Referral Accounts
American Express is offering eligible cardholders enhanced credit card rewards for referred friends and business owners by December 1, 2021. If your referral results in an approved account, you will earn 4 additional rewards per dollar on qualifying purchases for three months, up to $ 25,000, from the first date your referral’s account is approved.
While we’ve already seen Amex increase rewards based on approved referrals, this is the first time eligible Amex commercial cardholders can participate. Plus, the offer is better than ever.
What is the Amex Refer-a-Friend program?
With the Refer-a-Friend program, friends, family and fellow business owners can apply for American Express credit cards using your unique refer-a-friend link. Typically, if your referee’s application is approved for an eligible American Express customer or business card, you will receive a set number of Membership Rewards points.
In this case, the limited time offer is an additional 4 points per dollar spent on qualifying purchases in your Amex account (up to $ 25,000). Your referral can still receive a welcome offer when they apply through the referral link and are approved.
Which Amex cards are eligible for the referral bonus?
Not all American Express cards offer a referral bonus, so check your eligibility and read the details of your card’s specific offer.
You can recommend American Express cards that you don’t own to your friends as long as they are related to the card you own. It is important to know that the referral bonus does not apply to Amex co-branded cards such as Hilton or Delta Amex cards, only proprietary Amex cards.
You may not be eligible to participate in the Referral Program if you do not have an eligible American Express card, if you are behind on credit card bill payments, or if you have reached the maximum number of points. sponsorship.
In addition, you cannot earn the referral bonus if your referral’s request is not approved, if they do not use your referral link for their Amex card application, or if for some other reason you are considered as an ineligible sponsorship.
Here is a list of cards that allow you to participate in the limited-time Amex referral bonus:
You can only earn the additional rewards once per card, although you can refer from multiple Amex cards.
This limited time offer is a great opportunity to increase your rewards earnings, especially in time for vacation spending with your Amex card. If you know someone interested in getting a new American Express card, this referral bonus might make it worthwhile to refer people you know.
