Remember reward cards are usually only worthwhile if you pay your balance in full each month. Also, it’s worth using the Amex eligibility checker to check whether you’ll be accepted prior to using the referral link.
Welcome bonuses are generally only applicable for customers who have not held an American Express card for at least 24 months (although the link above can still be used to apply, even if you’re not sure whether you’re eligible for the bonus).
