American Express Business Rewards Gold Choose Your Category For 3X Membership Reward Points
The American Express Business Rewards Gold card has added new benefits. Previously the card earned 3x points on airfare purchased directly through an airline and 2x in four other bonus categories. (Up to $100,000 in spending per year in each category.) Now, you can choose which of the five categories earn 3x, with the others earning 2x. This is a great benefit for those that don’t want their 3X catagory in Airfare.
The other bonus categories you can choose from are
- U.S. Advertising in Select Media
- U.S. Shipping
- Select Hardware/Software/Cloud Computing
- U.S. Gas Stations
How Do I Select My 3x Bonus Category on the American Express BRG (Business Rewards Gold Credit Card)
Every year you can select your category during the open enrollment period from December 1 through January 31. It is almost like health insurance! You can still select your category if you haven’t yet. To start, go to open.com/businessgold and login to get started.
Once you are logged in, scroll down and you should see your card listed along with each of the 5 categories. Click on the bubble corresponding to the category that you would like to earn the 3x points in for the year. We chose The Hardware software catagory, as that is where the bulk of our purchase are from.
After selecting your category, scroll down to the terms and conditions. You must scroll through all of the terms in order to activate the “I agree, Submit” button. Once this is done, click the button to confirm your category selection.
After clicking submit, you should receive a Thank You and confirmation of the category chosen.
I got the American Express Business Rewards Gold card back in December with the 75,000 Membership Rewards bonus offer. That offer may still be available. Try using this link in incognito and regular to try to duplicate that offer.
The regular offer is 25,000. To get a better offer try this. Open the application in incognito. If it doesn’t pull up the better offer try with opening and closing the tabs, as well as switching personal to business and back to personal. I was able to pull open a 50k link and a 75k link. Try to get the best link before you apply for a credit card.
