AMEX, through an organization called Perkopolis, which I happen to be a member of through my teacher's union, is offering a deal on the Gold AMEX card.
The gold AMEX card used to come with a waived first year annual fee, but that has not been available for awhile--until now--in a way...
Your annual fee will be charged, but you will be refunded the full amount after hitting the spending threshold of $1500 in three months. Even better, there is NO language stating that the welcome bonus is only available to those who've never had the card, so EVERYONE is eligible!!
If you apply through THIS link, you can apply for the card if you have the Perkopolis RSVP code.
The code is the short form for American Express (I gave it to you right in the beginning of this blog), followed by the first four letters of the organization I mentioned, followed by the number that is one more than 17. Goes to say, I'm not suppose to advertise the code! BTW, all the letters in upper case letters.
25K AMEX points is worth 25K Aeroplan points (long haul flight across North America), 25K British Airways Avios points (that you could use to fly any of BA's affiliates, including American Airlines, including a long haul flight across North America). Keep the points as AMEX points until you're ready to use them. You can be in touch with me on how to get even more with your points!
