Update: Some of the offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here: Gold Delta SkyMilesPlatinum Delta SkyMilesDelta Reserve Credit CardBusiness Platinum Card from American Express has a Card Match tool that allows you to see if you have any special credit card offers targeted towards you. I just went on and saw four offers that that beat any public offers out there with points bonuses that are 50-100% higher – including 50,000 Membership Rewards points for the Premier Rewards Gold after only $1,000 spent within the first 3 months with the $175 annual fee waived the first year (vs. the public offer of only 25,000 points after $2,000 spent in the first 3 months), and 45,000 SkyMiles for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Amex when you spend $5,000 in 6 months with the $95 annual fee waived the first year vs. 30,000 miles on the public offer.

To see if you are eligible for any of these offers:

1. Go to the Card Match Tool:

The Card Match Tool will not pull a hard inquiry on your credit

The Card Match Tool will not pull a hard inquiry on your credit


2. Enter your information

3. You should be redirected to a page with the following four offers from American Express and can apply directly from there.


Amex PRG 50k

50,000 points is double the current public offer on this card.

1. Up to 50,000 Membership Rewards points for the American Express Premier Rewards Gold card: The public offer on this card is just 25,000 Membership Rewards points when you spend $2,000 in the first 3 months, but this offer is for double that for spending half! So you get 50,000 points by spending just $1,000 in 3 months and the rest of the terms are the same including the annual fee of $175 being waived for the first year. Note: If you have gotten another Amex personal card within the last 90 days (including the 100,000 Platinum offer from last month, you will not eligible for this offer. “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days.”

The offer of 45,000 miles is 50% higher than the current public offer.

The offer of 45,000 miles is 50% higher than the current public offer on this card.

2. Update: The Card Match tool is no longer loading the 45,000 mile offer for the Gold Delta SkyMiles card. 

Up to 45,000 Delta SkyMiles for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express: The public offer out there on this card has been stuck at a measly 30,000 miles when you spend $500 in the first three months for a while now, but this offer beats that by 50%. You get 25,000 miles upon first purchase and 20,000 more miles for spending $5,000 within 6 months.

Blue Cash Preferred 25k

Why settle for 150 Reward Dollars when you can get 250 instead for spending the same amount of money?

3. 250 Reward Dollars for the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express:  The current public offer is for 150 Reward Dollars after you make $1,000 in purchases in the first three months of Cardmembership. However, with this offer, you earn 250 Reward Dollars after you make $1,000 in purchases in the first three months of Cardmembership instead – that’s $100 extra value, the equivalent of an additional 10% return on your spending.

Blue Cash Everyday 15k

Get 150 Reward Dollars instead of just 100 when you spend $500 in 3 months.

4. 150 Reward Dollars for the Blue Cash Everyday Card from American Express: Here’s another 50% bonus above the current public offer. You get 150 Reward Dollars when you spend $500 within the first three months with this offer instead of just 100 Reward Dollars for spending the same amount if you applied just through the current links out there.

If you’ve been considering any of these cards, now might be the time to get in on them since these offers are higher than anything we’ve seen on any of them in a long while that hasn’t been targeted. The one sticking point for you might be that much higher spending requirement on the Gold Delta Amex, but given the revised Medallion qualification requirements that include either credit card spending or airfare spending that Delta has put in place, you might already be considering spending more money on the card or airline anyway.

There is also limited time offer for the American Express Business Platinum Card where you get 25,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in the first 3 months of card membership.  If you apply for a business and personal American Express card in the same day you can receive both sign up bonuses although you will usually get 2 hits on your credit.

    Just applied (and received) 25k for the Premier Rewards Gold last month…
    Should I try and call customer service and see if they’d offer me another 25k?
    Or am I out of luck on this one?

  • thepointsguy

    Never hurts to ask!

  • Chirag

    Awesome! Just got approved for 50K :)

  • Bryan

    Score! Just approved for the 50k premier awards card, even despite a mini-churn of 2 cards at the end of January. Thanks for the scoop!

  • Brad Comer

    I have a PRG and my wife is an authorized user. Would she qualify for the 50,000 points applying on her own?

  • thepointsguy

    Yes. Being an authorized user won’t preclude you from getting the signup bonus

  • Marc-Andre

    I do have the Amex Platinum and when I click on “Apply Here” on card match I see a link that says : this offer is no longer available”.. Any updates ? Is it because I’m already an Amex customer or because the offer has expired ?
    Thanks !

  • thepointsguy

    Make sure you are logged out of your Amex account or use a different browser and it should work

  • blake

    PRG looks amazing but i was planning to apply for several cards in early march, which would be 91 days since my first 3-card churn.

    would applying for PRG now screw up that plan and force me to wait another 91 days from now, assuming all other factors are good?

  • Sammyjpat

    will the application go through even if you do not qualify? canceled the PRG card 6 months ago to get the 75K business one

  • Ryan


  • thepointsguy

    Still working for me. If you get an error try opening it through a different browser

  • thepointsguy

    The 91 day rule is anything but official. It you have good credit you can get approved regardless of any spacing between apps (especially with a call to the reconsideration line)

    I don’t think this offer will be around long (based on the last time it was offered), so Id get in sooner than later

  • ATLJason

    There is a nuance of this statement that I don’t quite understand: “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days”. I have had a DELTA Amex Gold (and a Delta Amex Business Gold) within the last 90 days that is tied to my Skymiles account but I have never had any kind of Amex card that gives me Membership Rewards points. Do these Delta Amex cards count as “any other consumer” card or no?

  • thepointsguy

    Delta cobrands would not disqualify you for the bonus

  • Alex

    Hmm cool :) I qualify for the PRG 50k one..

  • Dad to Go

    I applied for and received this card last month with a $5000 spend requirement… through this link I am offered it with the $1000 spend. Has anyone had luck getting AMEX to match the lower spend requirement?

    perfect timing for a new gas/grocery card now that hilton points are about to become more or less worthless…

  • Thrifty Tourist

    Be careful with the terms of who qualified. I applied for and was approved using the same link in early January and was denied any signup bonus or the waiver of the annual fee, because I have a Platinum Card. I have had the platinum card since 2011. According to Amex, it is not “applied for in the last 90 days” it is have any of the listed cards in the past 90 days. Again, this is according to Amex. Anyone else have an existing card over 90+ days who applied last January and get the bonus points?

  • uwscooter

    Offer was still there but not sure if I’m within the 90 day window on my last AmEx card (SPG)….will find out soon enough I guess…all 4 offers listed above were there for me as well….nice tool

    I’ve had the Personal PRG within the last 12 months. Any way to get an app link to the Biz one? Is there even a 50k Biz offer?


    I just received the Hilton Amex card last month (we won’t even go into what a mistake that was) and I have had an AMEX Gold Card for the past 15 years. Would I still qualify for the PRG card and the signup bonuses?

  • Alex S.

    TPG, I just signed-up for PRG last month, but I am showing up as eligible for this — even getting so far as the AmEx website where I could fill out the application. I have called AmEx twice about this, they obviously no nothing about this offer, and they are telling me that since I don’t have a bonus ID #, there is nothing they can do for me. Any advice?

  • Alex S.

    ANy luck on this? I just tried, and they wouldn’t let me since I didn’t have a bonus ID #….

  • Scobro99

    I cancelled my premier rewards card August 2012…i assume this prevents me from getting the bonus again since it was closed within the 12 month window. Is this correct ??

  • thepointsguy

    Per the rules, yes

  • KC

    I was planning a big AOR tomorrow morning with 8 card apps (!) as everyone says it is better to apply in the morning rather than night. But this offer is too good to pass up — should I do my AOR tonight? Is there a good chance that this offer will be gone by tomorrow morning? Any advice based on your experience with AORs is much appreciated.

  • thepointsguy

    It doesn’t really matter when you apply, to be honest. I bet the offer will still be around, but they can get pulled at any minute. So if you want it, I wouldn’t wait

  • thepointsguy

    Well the bonus ID is embedded in the application. Amex reps often give wrong information. Technically you don’t qualify for the bonus, but you might still get it.

  • thepointsguy

    “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days.”

  • thepointsguy

    Amex has cracked down on signup bonuses lately so to be 100% safe, you should wait 90 days after canceling one. However, I’ve gotten the bonus with an Amex Platinum still active in the past… but I wouldn’t bank on it

  • thepointsguy

    Amex points are more interesting than Thank You, because you can transfer to frequent flyer programs- often at nice bonuses.

    It worked for me as well. However, when I clicked on the button for the short application as an existing Amex card member, I received an error message. I just filled out the long application and was immediately approved.

  • venkimach

    Can I transfer my points to AA ? I already have like 100k there.

  • thepointsguy

    Not directly to AA, but to oneworld partners British Airways (often at a bonus) and Cathay Asia Miles. You can book one ticket using AA and the other using BA/Asia miles

  • Melthead

    I received a processing error but just got an email I was approved. Looks like I’m good!

  • Douglas Mcghee

    That’s how I read it too. Makes it tricky to build membership rewards. To churn wouldn’t you have to drain all your mr and then cancel?

  • R B

    Talking about Amex, did anyone receive the 100K bonus for the Plat card last month?

  • Wireone

    I have a Canadian PRG and a US starwood…you think I will qualify for the bonus on this?

  • jjmAAplat

    FYI – you do NOT have to put your SS# in to see the cards for your credit profile. I didn’t and got the same offer for AMEX gold 50,000 and the AMEX Delta 45,000 in addition to others.

    Approved for the PRG Gold Card. Thanks for this great tip!

    Quick question: when does the 3 months begin, during which I have to spend $1,000? Is it the application day? Or when I receive the card? Or when I call in to activate the card?

    And if it’s when I call in to activate the card, how long can I wait before doing so? Thanks!

  • Jtgray

    In my experience it’s the day of approval and/or account creation. Sometimes they actually give you 93 days or something to account for that, depends on the card. Ask them when you activate.

    Reminder: AmEx sometimes offers 75k or 100k points for the Premier Rewards Gold card (see )

    No it’s just a glitch with Amex systems. Log out of your Amex account and use a different browser and it’ll populate

    I called the number and got AmExp and they know nothing about the better offer

  • Kingart55

    what did I do wrong

  • Nick

    As of 2/22 (1 a.m. EST) the deal is still good.

    However, I had to try three different browsers to get approved. With Chrome, I got the error message that several others have reported–wasn’t even given a chance to enter my information. With IE, I was able to input all my information, but that same error message came up after I hit submit. I tried re-submitting ~5 times, but it didn’t work.

    So finally I tried Firefox, and everything worked beautifully. For those of you they are getting the error message, make sure to try all three browsers, particularly since others have reported success with browsers other than Firefox.

    Good luck!

    JUST DO IT!! 50K MR can do a lot of things such as fly LAX to Hawaii 5 one way trips assuming the transfer from MR= BA Avios is worst at 25% to fly alone, you can get on Alaska air or AA with BA Avios or Delta ( if with transfer bonus) HKG-TPE 4.5 K on Cathay etc etc

    so can I sign up for the premier rewards AND the delta amex card and get all those miles?
    also- can I add the permier rewards miles to my Skymiles account??
    Thanks guys,


  • Andy

    I thought there was a 1=1 transfer between Amex and Delta?

  • Andy

    Looking at the AMEX website it looks like you can transfer Amex points to Delta on a 1:1 basis. I am also wondering if it is worth it to sign up for both cards and transfer the points to Delta?

  • thepointsguy

    Yes you can transfer to delta at 1:1. They used to run transfer bonuses often but there hasn’t been one since 2011

  • thepointsguy

    Yes you can transfer membership rewards to delta instantly at a 1:1 ratio

  • Andy

    TPG, Is this an advisable strategy?

    thanks for your reply

  • thepointsguy

    I personally don’t transfer Amex to delta because delta miles are
    Difficult to use at reasonable levels. I usually wait for transfer bonuses and transfer to British airways/ air France / Aeroplan for max value. Singapore and ANA can be good too

    Offer is still showing up for me but short application results in error so I guess I’d have to go through the long app. Before I pull the trigger, I got in on the Platinum 100k offer on Jan 8 so will I likely be denied the bonus points as this offer limits : † Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card® account within the last 90 days.

    Brian, what does the disclaimer mean by saying the welcome bonus is not available to people who have “had” a Gold or other Amex acct in the last 90 days? Does that mean people who have started a new account in the last 90 days, or people who currently have such a Gold Amex card? I would hate to switch and not get the bonus. Thanks!

  • Judy

    I called Amex and was told that it’s not just if you GOTt another Amex card in the last 90 days; it’s if you HAVE any Amex card now or in the past 90 days. It’s an offer for newbies only. So maybe some of you are getting the card but not the sign-up bonus!

    Dubious of this site. Was offered A Cap One Student card, and I’m 55. Four other Cap One cards, and three First Premier cards aimed towards people with credit issues.

    Chase approved me last week for my fourth card from them, the BA card, so I’m not a risk more than anyone else.

    In my situation: They around july 2012 gave me Business Gold Premier so I could cancel the ex Premier Gold in Sep 2012 and dodged the imminent $175annual fees ( to keep my MR rewards) . This round they gave me back my Personal Gold card and I can cancel my new Business Gold card whenever I want to get away the $175 fees in this July.

    DEAD!?!?! I checked earlier today through and it was working. Just tried (March 14th at 9PM) and it seems to be now dead for the Premier Rewards card. The others seem to be active still. Can anyone else confirm?

    Oh man… what a waste of time for me then. I had a Zync card. I’m going back and forth with customer service and now I look like the idiot. Thanks for the post.

    When the offer states $X,XXX spending in the first three months, does that mean you need to spend the specified amount each month? Or the specified amount over the period of the first three months combined?

  • Uri Hadelsberg

    For whoever asked- u have to spend that amount in 3 months and not each month

  • Kathy

    Applied and got this card back in February based on the 50,000 pts bonus. Met the spending requirement within the three months but never saw the 50,000 pts posted to MR account. Just called MR customer service and they told me the pts bonus was denied because I have had an green AMX card for years. She said the only recourse was writing a letter to MR and see if they would change their mind. Any other ideas? Anyone in a similar situation?
