Annual fee of $250.

A good offer that will earn you 40,000 Membership Rewards points for upgrading to the Gold card. That’s just 10,000 points short of the current signup bonus. By upgrading you also miss out on a referral bonus, but you save yourself a hard pull. It also gives you the opportunity to get the bonus once again if you already had the card in the past.
