Previously, the American Express Gold card offered only 25,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert 1:1 into Aeroplan. However, a new offer, which is the best-ever offer, appeared a couple months ago: 25,000 points after spending $1,500 in three months, and 5,000 points when you add an authorized user for free when you apply for the card, for a total of 30,000 Membership Rewards/Aeroplan points. There is no cost to add the authorized user.
This card is absolutely free for the first year, and you should cancel it before the annual fee is due. While the 25,000 point offer is standard, the additional 5,000 point offer seems to be a limited-time promotion, so if you’re just starting churning or have never had the American Express Gold card before, now is as good a time as ever to apply. This is one of the easiest cards to be approved for, and only requires a personal or household income of $20,000. The additional 5,000 points is only available through a referral link and is not a publicly available offer.
