American Express is offering some cardmembers elevated bonuses for referring another person to a new card.

Up to 20,000 Amex Membership Rewards for Referring a Friend

It seems to apply only to cards that earn American Express Membership Rewards points and not co-brand cards.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Here are a few offers I have on my own accounts. Note the special callout that this is an elevated offer.

amex referral offers

The 20,000 point offer on the Amex Gold is double the usual offer while the Amex Business Platinum and the Blue Business Plus are an extra 5,000 points.  Remember that Amex has also updated the offers on the Blue Business Plus and Blue Business Cash today to $300 in statement credits.

It seems the person being referred gets a good offer as well.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
