Points Earning Potential
To earn the most points when using your Amex Business Gold Rewards Card you will need to understand how the category system works. There are 5 categories involved that members are eligible to earn points from when making purchases. Those categories are:
- Airfare purchased from the airlines
- US purchases for advertising in select media
- US purchases at gas stations
- US purchases for shipping
- US computer equipment (including hardware, software, and cloud computing made directly from select providers)
Amex members can earn 3X the points on one category from the list above, 2X the points on the 4 remaining categories, and 1X the points on other purchases. One basic limitation that applies to this points earning plan is 3x and 2x points apply to the first $100,000 in purchases in each of the 5 categories per year, 1x point per dollar thereafter.
