Business owners who have been thinking about getting The Business Platinum® Card from American Express have a little extra motivation to take the plunge. Through Aug. 8, 2018, the high-end business travel card is offering new cardholders up to 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points.

The full bonus is earned in two stages and requires $25,000 in spending within the first three months. The details, from American Express: “Earn 50,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $10,000 and an extra 25,000 points after you spend an additional $10,000 all on qualifying purchases within your first 3 months of Card Membership. Terms Apply.”

NerdWallet values Membership Rewards points at about 1 cent each, so the bonus can return $1,000 worth of value, enough to offset the annual fee of $595 for the first two years.

Frequent business travelers who enjoy premium perks will find that The Business Platinum® Card from American Express delivers. The card’s features include:

  • 5 points per $1 spent on flights and prepaid hotels on
  • 1.5 points per dollar on each eligible purchase of $5,000 or more

The enhanced welcome bonus is available only to new cardholders who have never had The Business Platinum® Card from American Express before.
