[Expired] American Express Platinum 100,000 Point Link – Publicly Available

Warning: Last time such a link was found people had their accounts frozen. Make sure you take screenshots and don’t do any manufactured spending. Also keep in mind it was their whole point balances and not just the 100,000 points from the Platinum offer.

Are You Eligible If You’ve Had Another Flavor Of The Platinum Card?

American Express issue a lot of different versions of the Platinum card (you can view them all here). In the past people have been succesfully in getting the bonus on different versions of the platinum card, but I did see a few recent datapoints (during the last 100,000 point offer) of this not being the case.

Our Verdict

Incredible offer, but obviously with some risk involved. I assume most people won’t be eligible due to the once in a lifetime limitation as well. Read these things you should know about American Express before applying.

what is manufactured spending?

So did the people who had their accounts frozen receive their points? cfpb involved? I never had this card before.

Some did, some didn’t. Mine were frozen, and then unfrozen and I still had the points. From what I read, those who actually lost their points were people who MS’ed. getting the CFPB involved actually made it worse for most – amex quoted some of their terms (I can’t remember the exact wording) and cfpb agreed that it was abuse. Definitely want to do real spending on this card.

Those benefits are for the business plat version.

If last time i had my account shut down before I hit the bonus spending amount, am I still eligible for the bonus if I hit it this time?

The terms referencing having the card before and nothing about the bonus. Therefore you have had the card and are not eligible.

All the card details refer to the business version of the card…

Datapoint…I applied for this last time and was approved. Did the send with no MS, but actual spend. Two months after I received the bonus I was able to transfer out with no issues.

I previously had an Ameriprise version of the Platinum. Would I still be eligible for this version to receive the bonus?

Yes . I was able to get bonus from both version of Amex Plat . But in case of leaked version , bonus for some users were taken back as Amex claimed that they have already got the bonus.

You had Ameriprise Plat while getting 100k plat, or you had it before, closed it and then got 100k plat?

My dad was just approved for this card. Then there was the screen to either create a new online profile or add this card to the existing profile. He entered his existing login info, but then was notified that he had to create a new profile for this card. This is his 3rd AMEX card (2 existing credit cards, first charge card and first MR card). Once multiple logins are created, can he add this card to his main login that he’s had for years?

Fiby

Yes. You can unlink Amex cards from logins and relink them to other ones.

Had the same issue when I was trying to link this card to my existing account. 3rd Amex (1 charge and 1 revolving). I’ve google the “We apologize for the inconvenience. This Card cannot be added to your existing Online Account. Please set up a new Online Account by completing the fields below.” and it appears that it’s possible to merge two accounts. Hopefully there’s no issues with the 100k bonus.

Just wait for the email, it should work then.

Will never use these leaked Amex links again and I suggest people to not either, had enough headaches with the last 100k offer and my points being clawed back..

Did you do any MS Ric?

Approved! I thought this wouldn’t happen until next Spring or Summer. Thank you, DOC. (I, too, was not able to link the card to my existing login). I have no plans to MS on this card so hopefully there shouldn’t be an issue with the bonus.

My brother and I apply the last 100k in may 2016. We both have our point clawback. My brother did legit spend but close his card in July. His point was clawback in early September. I MS on my but I didn’t close it. My point was claw back in middle of August.

I’m assuming we can’t apply and get the bonus since we had the card before even though we got our bonus clawback.

Not able to get the offer to load. Opened incognito browser and getting this message “We apologize that the offer you are looking for may no longer be available.” Any ideas?
