Multiple sources are reporting that CARDMATCH has an offer for the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express that comes with 50,000 bonus Membership Rewards after spending $1,000 in the first three months and has the annual fee waived for the first year. (This offer was seen 11/25/13.) The annual fee is $0 for the first year, then $175.

The normal offer is only 25,000 Membership Rewards after spending $2,000 in the first three months, so this is double the points for half the spending.

In addition to the mega sign up bonus, the card is also incredibly rewarding for normal spending. It offers:

  • 3X points for flights booked with airlines
  • 2X points at US gas stations and US supermarkets
  • 1X points on other purchases

And Membership Rewards themselves are among the most versatile transferable points that transfer to 17 airline partners in all three global alliances and several hotel partners.
