About the Referral


Free Round Trip Flight in North America

Jordan set us up with a sweet share.  You can use his referral to get a ridiculous number of point from American Express that translates into tons of free flights.  If you like flights and were looking at signing up for an American Express card use Jordan’s referral and get the points. You can pick from three cards with various levels of awesomeness and you start with a ton of miles for just using someone else’s referral.

Here is what Jordan has to say:

“Get 25,000 points FREE, which can be converted immediately into Aeroplan Miles at a ratio of 1:1. The $150 annual fee is waived for the first 12 months, and you can cancel the card at that point for no penalty if you want. Either way, you keep all the Aeroplan points!”

Here is what Amex says about the share:

Earn our highest Gold Rewards Card points offer of 25,000 Bonus Membership Rewards points through this referral offer when you charge $500 in purchases to your Card in the first 3 months of Cardmembership –enough for a round trip flight almost anywhere in North America. Offer subject to change at any time. Plus you pay no annual fee for the first year.”

Here is what we think about the share:

Look I have had an American Express card for several years now. I am in the military so I get the annual fee waved (FYI if you are in the military just call them up and they waive it). That being said for some of the higher cards like the Platinum or even the Gold credit card those annual fees can get pretty pricey so I am not sure it is really worth it, if you don’t get the fees waived. Now if you travel a lot for work or use a company expense account than you should definitely get one of these cards. American Express has one of the best reward programs out there (considering they charge so much they ought to) and a lot of them force you to be responsible by not allowing you to carry a balance. So long story short go for it. Try it for a year, if you don’t use it enough to justify the fee cancel the card. Hell if you use the card like Jordan says you won’t even have to pay the fee for the first year. Regardless, make sure you use all those damn free flights that Jordan gave you before you cancel it. If AMEX is too high dollar for you give Discover Card a chance. Josh is sharing a $50 referral bonus for Discover.
