Update: Unfortunately, this offer is no longer available.
I suspect this won’t last very long, but it seems that most folks are able to see some terrific American Express credit card offers which are usually selectively targeted and not open to all.
Thanks to Travel Summary for finding these and consider using his affiliate link to Credit Cards.com as thanks!
Follow these clear directions on Travel Summary and you should be able to see targeted offers to you.
I was able to see:
- 100,000 Point American Express Platinum after spending $3,000 within 3 months
- 50,000 Point American Express Gold after spending $1,000 within 3 months
- 45,000 Delta miles after spending $5,000 within 6 months
Note that you don’t have to enter your social security number in the box on creditcards.com. If you do enter your social security number, it won’t be a hard inquiry unless you apply for a credit card.
Also note the possibility of not getting the full bonus if AMEX considers you to not be targeted for these offers , so do take lots of screen shots if you decide to apply!
The American Express Platinum has a $450 fee, but the 100,000 points are worth at least $1,000 so you’re still coming out ahead. You can also cancel the card and get a pro-rated fee refund and you also get $200 to use towards airline incidental expenses.
However, you may be able to use this $200 towards buying airline gift cards. Check out this post by Milevalue for more details on which airline gift cards count towards the $200 credit.
The terms say:
Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card account within the last 90 days.
So you won’t be able to get the bonus if you had the American Express Platinum within the last 12 months.
