Amex Gold Business Card: Increased Offers: 70K to 100K
A few new offers have been launched for the American Express Business Gold card. These could net you between 100,000 and 70,000 Membership Rewards Points. It all depends on what offer you have and how many stacks you are able to do. These offers are more expensive than normal 35K-60K offers. However, the spending required is double.
Updated 11/13/21 (HT DoC)
Update 8/26/21 - I was once again targeted via traditional mailer, this time for the fourth time. Many are also receiving upgrades and expanded membership offers for Amex Business Platinum.
Updated 5/14/21 Even though I had just received the Gold Business Card late last year, I was able sign up for one. I did not receive the pop-up on it, even though I was signed up for regular offers.
UPDATE: 4/20/21: I have added a new offer for the 80K level. However, it requires a much lower spend. You will need to choose which offer best suits your needs.
Update: 3/25/21: More people were targeted by regular mail for the 80K to 90K offers with lifetime language. My wife got one, and several others reported similar experiences in the Miles to Memories Facebook Group.

These offers offer higher points, but you will miss the $300 credits. This may be a better choice if you are certain you can easily max them out.
100K Offer Possible
What about having your cake and eating it, with the 2 player one-two step? Benjy was able, through a referral for his wife, to receive the 70K increase and $300 in statement credit. He also used a 30K referral form his Amex Gold card to get the increased 70K offer and $300 in statement credits.
One thing to keep in mind when considering this route is that the 30,000 points referral will be subject to a $300 tax. This could make it less value than the 90K offer, etc. Although it is unlikely, it is something you should be aware of.
There are many offers on the Amex Gold Business Card right now. It was available as a referral offer for 60K, which required only $5,000 of spend. The spend was easier for me, so I like this offer slightly more. These new deals are hard to beat if you have the ability to meet the higher requirements and max out the $300 credit.
