    Amex just started a good new offer for Canadians. They bump up the sign up bonus for Business gold card from 25k to 40k and waive the $250 annual fee for the first year: Link

    You do not have to own a business to apply for this card. You can just use your legal name as the company name.

    I just find the annual fee quite steep without too many perks associated with it.

    The $250 annual fee is waived for the first year. You can see the T&Cs when you start the application.

    Only the $5000 spend requirement for the first 3 months is a bit tough.

    There is 30000 MR bonus plus 10000 bonus via referral. If you self-refer from a AMEX MR card (Gold card or Plat card), then you also earn the 10000 referral bonus. That is good, but you can not cross-card-type referral. for example you cannot refer yourself from Aeroplan Gold card and Air Miles gold card. If anyone interested in 40,000 pts for Amex Gold Business Card plus 1st YEAR FREE , try this link to get the offer: 40k points LINK
