Earlier this year, I wrote about some impressive credit card offers, as well as some new offers that were loaded more recently through the CardMatch tool. It appears that several of these targeted offers are still available, so if you haven’t checked with CardMatch lately, you may want to take another look.
As reported by several readers on April 22, 2015, CardMatch is still 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 from CardMatch:
60,000 Amex Platinum Card Offer:
50,000 Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card Offer:
50,000 Gold Delta Amex Card Offer:
To get the offer legitimately, go to the CardMatch tool and enter your information. Some folks might be squeamish about entering the last four digits of a social security number, but it’s a reputable site and you shouldn’t be any more anxious about it than applying for a credit card online. 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 currently have this product, or have had it previously. 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 the cards mentioned above are particularly good deals, you might also be targeted for other worthwhile bonuses. Readers have also reported higher offers for other Amex cards, and Chase just recently added some of its cards to CardMatch as well.
