American Express business cardholders can now rack up points when they refer a new business to the American Express suite of cards thanks to the new Travel More With +4 promotion.
Here is a look at the details of the latest promotion, including what cards and purchases are eligible, how many Membership Rewards points you can earn, and more.
Amex Travel More With +4 Promotion Details
To celebrate the launch of the Refer a Business program, American Express will offer the Travel More With +4 promotion through November 14, 2022.
During the promotion window, business cardholders who successfully refer a new business to an American Express card will receive +4 Membership Rewards points on travel and transit purchases, on up to $20,000 in purchases, for 3 months from the approval date.
Current card members can visit the Referral Hub landing page to refer fellow business owners. As with personal referrals, the business you refer does not have to apply for the same card you hold. For instance, if you have The Business Platinum Card® from American Express and the business you refer applies and is approved for The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express, you will still receive the +4 promotion bonus.
What Cards and Purchases Are Eligible?
The following cards are eligible for the promotion:
Travel purchases include airfare, hotels, cruises, tours, car rentals, campgrounds, third-party travel websites, and Amex Travel, while Transit purchases include: trains, taxicabs, rideshare services, ferries, tolls, parking, buses, and subways.
One great aspect of the promotion is that the +4 rewards you earn are in addition to the points you already receive from a card’s bonus categories.
For instance, Amex Business Platinum cardholders will earn 9x points on flights and prepaid hotels booked through Amex Travel (5x earning on flights and prepaid hotels on amextravel.com plus 4x from the promotion). With the Amex Blue Business Plus card, you’ll earn 6x points on all eligible travel and transit purchases (2x on all purchases plus 4x from the promotion).
Those with one of the cash-back cards, the Amex Blue Business Cash card or the Amex Plum card, will earn an added 4% cash-back on top of the card’s bonus categories, allowing those with the Amex Blue Business Cash card to earn 6% cash back on eligible purchases for 3 months or up to $20,000 in spend.

American Express offered a similar promotion last year for personal cards, and it is great to see the promotion extended to business cardholders this time around. This is a great promotion for business owners to take advantage of, as it allows you to earn up to an additional $800 in cash-back or 80,000 Membership Rewards points if you meet the $20,000 purchase threshold within the 3-month window.
If you know of a fellow business owner that is in the market for a new Amex card, now is the time to start sending out your referral link.
