American Express Gold card is at it again: 75,000 point sign-up bonus

The American Express Business Gold rewards card has been known to offer a seasonal 75,000 point sign-up bonus, albeit for only 1 day.  They're at it again, but this time, the offer is good for a week through January 28th.  This is a good opportunity if you're able to meet the spending threshold of $10,000 within the first 4 months of card membership.  The annual fee of $175 is also waived for the first year.  Here are some of the card benefits:

-LIMITED TIME OFFER: Earn 75,000 Membership Rewards points when you spend $10,000 in the first 4 months of Card membership.
 -3X points on airfare
 -2X points on purchases in the U.S. for advertising in select media, gasoline at U.S. stand-alone gas stations, and shipping
 -1X points on all other purchases
 -$0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then $175
Amex reward points can be transferred for a 1:1 ratio to many frequent traveler programs, most notably Delta Airlines, ANA, Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Air Canada, Virgin America, Best Western, and Hilton.  For more info on this card and for transfer partners, check out Mommy Points' post.

And since it's an Amex card, you'll be getting unparalleled card protection benefits such as theft and damage protection, extended warranty, and return protection.  75k points goes a long way if redeemed properly, so don't miss out on this offer as it's currently the best credit card sign-up bonus.
