This offer is now dead. The link below had a 100,000 Membership Reward sign-up bonus offer live for less than 24 hours. If you didn’t get it this time, next time don’t hesitate.
There is a publicly available offer for 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards after spending $3,000 on the American Express Platinum at this link. I value those points at about $2,000. Jump on this offer now because it will not last.
A few months ago I was approved for a similar offer before it was pulled offline in less than two days.
The card’s $450 annual fee doesn’t bother me. I will get $200 in airline gift cards this year, $200 in airline gift cards in early 2016, and lounge access to Delta SkyClubs and American Express Centurion lounges for a year for that price. Plus the 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards are worth about $2,000 to me because I will transfer them to partners for one or several high value awards.
See Get the Most out of Your American Express Platinum Card for a rundown of the benefits.
If you have ever had an American Express Platinum personal card, you are ineligible to get the bonus again. The American Express Platinum Mercedes-Benz personal card and American Express Business card are considered separate products.
