card_name currently has a new best ever welcome bonus. You can earn 60,000 Membership Rewards points, and up to $200 back on travel purchases. That’s a value of about $1,000 for a credit card that comes with a $150 annual fee (Rates and Fees), good earning rates and free CLEAR membership.
But it gets even better than that. This new welcome bonus is available through referral links. That could mean another 10,000 to 25,000 Membership Rewards points for a referral bonus if you are in 2-player mode. Check out the details of this welcome bonus below.
Here are the details of the welcome bonus:

Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card. If you’re not sure whether you’ve had this card in the past, you can use this trick to find out. Sometimes cards that you’ve had more than 5-7 years ago, will no longer show up in your Amex history. They may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility. Amex has a tool that will let you know whether you qualify for the bonus during the application process. If you’re an existing American Express customer they will only do a soft pull for new card applications.
American Express has a limit of one approved credit card every 5 days and two approved cards every 90 days. There’s also a maximum of 5 or 6 total American Express credit cards that you can have at a given time. However, the Amex Green Card is a ‘Pay Over Time’ card, so you can combine the application with another Amex card.
The best offers for the card_name have been either 60,000 points, or a Resy offer for 50,000 points plus $150 in credits. This new welcome offer gets you 60,000 points after spending $3,000 and another 20% back, up to $200, for travel purchases. And you can also earn a referral bonus, which can easily add another 25,000 points.
American Express Green Card earns 3 points per dollar spent on travel and restaurants worldwide, and Membership Rewards points can be transferred to other loyalty programs. It also comes with potentially valuable travel credits such as $189 for CLEAR membership and $100 for LoungeBuddy purchases. The annual fee is $150.
