About the Referral

$150 Sign Up Bonus From American Express

This share is for the AMEX Blue Card and is worth $150 for you and $50 for the Josh. American Express requires the link to come from them credit card company (i.e. them) so just submit your email below and you will receive a link from American Express shortly. There is of course a catch you don’t get  the $150 until “after you spend $1,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. You will receive $150 back in the form of a statement credit.”

    What We Think of the American Express Referral:

    This one is legit. American Express is a great company and the Blue card is one of the few they offer that allows you to keep a balance. The other nice thing about the Blue card is the cash back percentages The Blue American Express card gives you 3% Cash Back at U.S. supermarkets, up to $6,000 per year in purchases (then 1%); 2% cash back at U.S. gas stations; 2% Cash Back at select U.S. department stores; and 1% Cash Back on other purchases. Now I will say that their “supermarket” cash back is kinda suspect.  When you look closely they only give you 3% back on “groceries” beer apparently is not a grocery. If it was I would be a millionaire from my AMEX cash back. A lot of other things don’t qualify as well which I think is kind of shady.  If you buy it at the grocery store it is by default a grocery if you ask me.  Either way it is a pretty good deal and getting the extra $150 when you sign up is even better. If $150 isn’t good enough for you try out the Platinum Amex and you get $400 in gift cards if you use this referral.
