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.

The Chase Sapphire Reserve comes with 100,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards after spending $4,000 in the first three months that you can transfer to United miles, Singapore miles, Southwest points, British Airways miles, or use for 1.5 cents each toward any flight, hotel, or car rentals.
Plus the card offers $300 in credits toward any travel purchase each calendar year, which is $600 in your first 12 months of cardmembership, $100 toward Global Entry, and worldwide lounge access. Basically it's the best credit card ever, even with a $450 annual fee.
