Our Verdict

Standard bonus on this card is currently 60,000 points after $5,000 in spend, so this offer is better than that but there is a way to get 100,000 points on the personal Platinum card so I’d recommend that over this 75,000 point bonus (that 100,000 offer is listed on our best credit card bonus post). If you have any questions relating to American Express, read this post first.

    I am pulling up this offer consistently with Seattle IP… still can’t find the 65k PRG offer… has anyone seen it lately?

    • chaseaholic says:

      the PRG 2 year offer? 40k 1st year / $2k + 25k / $2k 2nd year?

      I believe that’s been gone for many months. I similarly haven’t been able to pull 25k gold (now it’s gone anyways), ED 25k, or BCE $250.

      Rest of the good offers are still easily available. Just emailed Will and IMO easier way
