As seen on March 18, 2015 CardMatch is now offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 Membership Rewards points for the American Express Platinum Card after spending $3,000 in your first 3 months of card membership. There’s also another lucrative offer for 50,000 Membership Rewards points for the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card after spending $1,000 within the first 3 months.
Here are some current offers readers sent to me:
The CardMatch tool allows you to see if you’ve been targeted for any special credit card offers, and the great thing about it is that searching for your offers does NOT put a hard credit inquiry on your credit report.
Both of these offers are through the CardMatch site, which means I can’t guarantee you’ll get them. I’d take screen shots of whatever offer you receive just in case.
To get the offer legitimately, go to the CardMatch tool and enter your information. This is a reputable site and is just as secure and any site you would apply for a credit card through. Hopefully you’ll get an Amex Platinum offer for 60,000 Membership Rewards points (or even 100,000), and/or the Premier Rewards Gold offer for 50,000 points. Again, take a screen shot of any offer you want to apply for as proof that you received it legitimately.
Signing up for the American Express Platinum Card with a sign-up bonus of 60,000 Membership Rewards points is a great deal. In my most recent monthly valuations, I list Membership Rewards points at 2 cents each, so I value 60,000 Membership Rewards points at $1,200, which far outweighs the $450 annual fee.
The American Express Premier Rewards Gold card offers 50,000 points after you spend $1,000 with no annual fee for the first year, and I value those 50,000 points at $1,000, making this another great deal. For both of these cards, it’s important to note that these offers are not available to applicants who have or have had this product previously, so if you’ve ever had one of these cards before, you won’t be able to sign-up again and receive the bonus.
As a reminder, CardMatch doesn’t force a hard credit inquiry, so there’s really no downside to looking. While these two cards are particularly good deals, you might also be targeted for other lucrative cards; readers have also reported higher offers for the Gold Delta SkyMiles Amex and the Amex EveryDay, so it’s worth taking a look!
Feel free to share your success below if you were able to get these offers through the CardMatch tool.
