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.

Got my Platinum card today. Don’t know if I should activate it because I’m a PRG card member (since 18 mos ago). Should I go ahead and activate the card, spend $3k and hope that they will give me the 100k bonus? Or should I call recon or new account line and ask if I can get the 100k bonus as an upgrade for my PRG card? Will I get another credit pull then? I’ve been seeing an upgrade offer (50k pts after 40k spend) every time I sign on to my account online and never bother to take it because it’s not worth it to me. Please advise.

@ETY – It depends if it is easy for you to meet the minimum spending requirements on the card. If so, then complete the spending on the platinum and if the points don’t post you can always upgrade the gold for the extra 50K points.

Platinum card arrived the 9th, having been approved on the 8th. Efficient company, AMEX.

I just missed this offer, but am looking to get a amex plat. Should I wait for the 100K MR to resurface, or is that a long shot?

@steve – Unfortunately, AMEX’s is reconsideration is pretty bad so perhaps best to wait. If you don’t hear back, you could call and ask for a US rep or a supervisor.

@Big boy – I believe you can get the bonus for both the Platinum and Mercedes Benz platinum, but your miles may vary. You can use Amazon Payments and Vanilla Reloads to help with the minimum spending.

@newToMiles – The 100K offer was likely a mistake on AMEX’s part, so I wouldn’t expect it to be back soon.

@rob – With the $450 fee, I’d expect it to arrive quick!

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone can help me with this,recently me and my wife got the platinum MB card for 50k and now we were approved for the regular platinum (100k offer)and now I’m trying to figure out if I will get the 100k after the minimum spend and it will not be that easy for me to hit the $3,000 threshold so I would greatly appreciate any ideas on figuring out if I will get the bonus

Thanx

Got my card this afternoon. Called to confirm the 50K offer and it was confirmed. Even better is that he said this despite knowing that I already had a platinum card. So I’m hopeful that I will get the bonus when I meet the spending requirement, even though the terms said I wouldn’t.
