Our Take

The real benefit of the American Express® Business Gold Card is the the fact that you earn 4x points on the two categories with the highest spending each month, automatically. These categories include flights purchased directly from airlines, U.S, purchases for advertising, gas stations, shipping, and computer hardware and software. Making this one of the best go-to spending cards for business owners.

We use this card for many of our business expenses at 10xTravel.

Be sure to look for a potentially higher bonus offer via CardMatch.

See the Business Platinum card commentary above for details on why Membership Rewards points are so valuable. Personally these are a close second in my book behind Chase Ultimate Rewards.

I just used 120,000 Amex Membership Rewards points myself to book a $20,000 First Class flight on ANA to Japan.

Here is what the 10xT Staff would do with a bonus of Amex points.
