I was browsing the amex refer page and noticed that the referral details for the Essential Card has significantly improved!
Referrers now receive 30k points (worth a whopping $150!) and referees receive 10k points (worth $50) per referral!! Referrers would previously receive 10k points and referees received 0 points. The points can be redeemed for statement credit (at a rate of 1,000 points = $5), making it as good as cash. Make sure you add your referral details to the system.
The essential card has no annual fees, comes with free smart phone screen insurance up to $500 (10% excess applies), free 12-month access to Centr and gives you 1.25 points per dollar spent (equates to 0.625% cash back). This makes it hands down the best entry amex card for those looking to hop on the amex offers bandwagon!
Min $40k income required, as well as eligible spend of $750 in the first 3 months. New card members only. Sign up via the referral system below and click on "show more", then click the random referral link for the essential card. You should see the "high points offer" once you click through (like the one in the picture I've attached). If you don't see it, click on the referral link again until you get that offer as only some referrers have this offer.
