The American Express Premier Rewards Gold usually offers a 25,000 mile signup bonus, I won’t even include my referral link that includes that in this post since it isn’t the best current offer.
Right now the Premier Rewards Gold — a card I use for triple points on airfare and double points on gas and groceries — is available with a $0 annual fee the first year ($175 after that) and a 50,000 point signup bonus after just $1000 in spending within 3 months.
This same offer was available for a day or so last month, at the same time there was a 100,000 mile signup bonus for the American Express Platinum card.
Nothing like the bonanza from the summer of 2011 when some folks were getting 75,000 for the American Express Premier Rewards Gold, but that was a targeted offer that people were getting American Express to honor for them (they since stopped being so generous honoring such offers).
While sometimes American Express does target individuals with 75,000 point bonuses for this card, I haven’t seen a generally-available bonus greater than 50,000 on it before.
The offer is available only through CreditCards.com, as far as I am aware. It’s their referral link. On their site, select “Card Match” and add your information (social security number requested but not required). The top offer displayed for most is this 50,000 point American Express offer.
