Update: We’ve been informed by Amex that this is a targeted offer. It may no longer be possible to sign up unless you’ve been selected to receive this particular offer.
Via a Reddit thread, American Express is currently offering 100,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $3,000 in the first three months with the Amex Platinum card. The regular Amex Platinum offer is for 40,000 points with the same spending requirement, so this is a fantastic deal.
Note that you aren’t eligible if you currently have the Platinum card or you’ve had one in the past, though you can get the bonus if you’ve had a different version of the card, such as the Mercedes-Benz Platinum Card or the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN.
While it comes along with a hefty $450 annual fee, the Amex Platinum card can be tremendously valuable for frequent travelers, thanks to its $200 annual airline credit (which may possibly be used for Amazon gift cards), lounge access (including Amex-branded Centurion Lounges), Hilton and Starwood Gold status, Global Entry credit and more. You also get access to Amex’s Platinum Concierge service and the Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts program.
TPG values Membership Rewards points at 1.9 cents each, thanks in part to Amex’s transfer partners, making this bonus worth a whopping $1,900. If you’ve been on the fence about Amex Platinum, now’s the time to jump!
Will you be earning 100,000 bonus points with the Amex Platinum card?
