If you are a business owner take advantage of this opportunity to upgrade your current credit card and receive an American Express Enhanced Business Gold Rewards Card. The card features a rewards program that allows you to choose from 5 categories where you can earn the most points. With this feature you get rewarded 3X points more for the kinds of purchases you make the most. This perk allows you to have more control over your earning potential because you decide how you want to use your card and your points immediately begin to increase faster.
To get an idea of how the points program work here are the choices that members can earn 3X the points: Airfare purchased directly from the airlines, US purchases for advertising in select media, US purchases at gas stations, US purchases for shipping, US computer equipment (hardware, software, cloud computing purchases made directly from select providers).
With the 3X options members can only select one category from the 5 available choices. The other 4 remaining categories members can earn 2X the points and 1X on all other purchases. This is an excellent incentive for customers to use their card more and rack up on incentive points. As a bonus perk American Express is also offering customers the opportunity to earn 50,000 points after they spend $5,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months of card membership. To receive this perk please pay specific attention to the application deadline date that is highlighted on your letter because it will have to be approved before that date expires.
