We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

There are fantastic targeted deals for The Platinum Card® from American Express and the American Express® Gold Card. You can see if you qualify for the deals through the CardMatch tool. When you use the CardMatch tool your credit won’t be pulled unless you apply for the card.

If you’re eligible for the Amex Platinum card deal, you’ll earn 100,000 Amex Membership Rewards points after spending $6,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening. That’s 40,000 points more than the current public offer.

There is also a 50,000-point welcome offer for the Amex Gold Card (15,000 points higher than the public offer), which you can earn after spending $2,000 in the first three months.

I wasn’t eligible for either of these deals, but if you were here’s a reminder of the cards’ perks. The Amex Platinum card comes with:

The $550 annual fee is NOT waived the first year (See Rates & Fees). But you can easily offset it with the card’s perks.

If you’re approved for the Amex Gold card, you can take advantage of these benefits:

The card has a $250 annual fee (See Rates & Fees).

Don’t Hesitate If You’re Targeted

Amex only lets you earn the welcome bonus on each card once per lifetime. So you should always make sure you’re getting the biggest welcome bonus possible. And you can do a lot with 50,000 or 100,000 Amex Membership Rewards points.

You could transfer those points to British Airways and book 2-4 round-trip flights from the West Coast to Hawaii. Or you can book round-trip flights to Hawaii from anywhere on the mainland US on United Airlines using only 35,000 Singapore Airlines miles (a 1:1 Amex transfer partner).

If you want to go someplace more exotic, you can transfer 50,000 Amex Membership Rewards points to ANA for a round-trip coach ticket between the US and Japan during the regular season and only 40,000 points during the low season.

You could even turn the bonus into a round-trip business-class flight to Europe, because you can book non-stop Delta business class flights from the US to Europe for 50,000 Virgin Atlantic miles one-way. And because you’re flying on Delta, you can skip the London connection and avoid those massive taxes and fees.

Note: You’ll pay an excise fee of 0.06 cents per point, to a maximum of $99, when you transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to US airlines, like Delta or JetBlue.
