Biggest Signup Bonus for mid-range AMEX Card?

    I have the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Citi Premier cards, which have been fantastic as I got 50,000 bonus points on each with only a $95 annual fee (not due the first year). However, I have been unable to find any similar offers for AMEX cards, with the only bonus I see 50k+ being their Platinum card with a $550 annual fee.

    What’s the next best AMEX signup bonus out there? Ideally it’ll help me eventually hit 70k, where I can convert to Aeroplan miles for a flight in Lufthansa First! But anything helps

    Well the Amex SPG card doesn't have a great signup bonus BUT when you transfer 20K miles to Aeroplan (in one transaction) you get a 5K bonus. And this card may not be around for much longer so you may want to get it while you can. Lucky has a link for it under the Hotel Cards section under the Credit Cards tab.
