Our Verdict

This YMMV offer of 110,000 points might still be available, and there’s also the call-in method which offers (YMMV) 100,000 points on just $10,000 in spend; otherwise the 85k referral offer is the best around as the public offer is just 75,000 points. The referral offer also gets the referrer somewhere between 5,000 and 20,000 points, depending which card they refer from. There was recently a 100,000 offer on $25,000 spend, available both publicly and via referrals, that offer has expired.

As always you can read more about American Express cards here. Do not leave referrals in the comments.

I’ve been seeing lately an offer for 75,000MR with only $5,000 spend. It’s been mainly showing up under AMEX Offers with the title: “Earn 75,000 Points”. Then when clicking on “learn more” it shows pre-approved

What does everyone mean that MSing on AMEX is dead? I just MSed 7k recently for 2 signups, easy as usual. Besides Simon Mall (and maybe Staples), are there are other merchants with multiple confirmed DPs that gift cards there won’t count for minimum spend? Either way there are plenty of stores, local grocery stores, etc that sell VGC that haven’t posed any problems. I mean there’s a CVS basically everywhere…

It was my understanding that SUB clawbacks applied to any MS regardless if store gives L3 data, so long as their algorithm can detect it.

If Amex would let me MS this SUB, I’d be all over it 🙁

Have you considered attempting to do some research and not asking to be spoonfed?

From everything I’ve read here, FF, and r/churning, everyone recommends not to MS amex SUBs regardless of the stores providing L3 data due to clawbacks. No need to be like that mate
