FREE $50 Gift Card AMEX Deal


AMEX is running a 5,000 rewards bonus deal. Sign up for the Green Business Rewards Card, make a purchase, and you will get 5,000 rewards points.

Don’t sweat if you don’t own a business. Just leave the federal tax ID field blank and your application will be treated as if you are a sole proprietorship. There is a $95 annual fee that is waived for the first year, so keep this in mind if you don’t plan to use the card afterwards. People have had no problems canceling their cards.

5,000 rewards points can fetch you a $50 gift card at these retailers.

I was trying to decide which store to redeem my points at, and I found a very helpful article at MyMoneyBlog: Which Store Gift Cards Have Highest Resale Value?.

According to the article, gift cards from Home Depot and Crate & Barrel have the highest resale values. I went on eBay and saw that most $50 Home Depot cards were selling for over $45. Not bad for an easy deal.

Alternatively, you can just keep the gift card yourself or give it to a friend as a hassle-free Christmas present.

    Doesn’t pretending you have a business to get a business credit card deal falls under fraud?
