American Express Platinum 75,000 Points Link Available via Referral and/or Incognito

Update 12/19/18: Reposting as a lot of people have been able to get this offer to show up recently. If you have your partner refer you (or self refer) then you can get an additional 20,000 points (e.g if you refer from business gold rewards referral). Potentially 95,000 points for 5,000 spend is almost as good as the 100,000 CardMatch offer but should be much easier to get.

The American Express Platinum card is now showing a higher signup bonus than the standard public 60,000 offer:

  • Signup for the American Express Platinum card and get 75,000 bonus points when spending $5,000 within 3 months at this link when going incognito. I was able to pull this one up with no issue.
  • Some people are also seeing the 75,000 offer with just a $5,000 in spend via referral. Note, many people are still seeing the ordinary 60,000 offer via referral.

Keep in mind, many people have had success getting 100,000 points with $5,000 spend using Cardmatch. But not everyone is able to always get that offer. Plus, if you can get the referral offer to show that’s quite a sweet offer since it has the advantage of racking up referral points (even self-referral). Course if you get the 100k offer to show, that’s still superior.

The screenshot is for business platinum whereas your post is for personal plat. For business plat, 75k has been around for a while.

This is the standard offer for plat biz card…I think the new trick has the same spending requirement as before

Was able to pull the 75000pt offer in incognito

The personal referral is still the same at 60k points: I just checked.

Chuck, it is important to differentiate between biz and personal versions. The biz offer has been around for a while. The new improvement is being able to pull 75k personal offer (with $5k spend) through opening referral links in incognito.

Wow, I’m seeing 75k for once. Never had any luck with the other methods. Might still hold out for 100k though…

Hey Chuck, Am I correct that only the vanilla plat is available via BPP self- referral? I was eyeing the Schwab Plat, but the screens available didn’t seem like this was an option. Fingers crossed, I overlooked it?

I think Schwab Plat is not part of the Amex referral program.

10 comments and not one person trying to post a referral (which is not allowed, but that doesn’t seem to stop people when the word referral is mentioned at all). I’m proud of us guys/gals! People are LEARNING!

The second bullet point – don’t you mean 75,000 point offer, not $75,000 offer?
“Some people are also seeing the $75,000 offer”

I am seeing the $75,000 offer. Just applied and approved. Finally can afford a Tesla.

$75,000 would be too steep even more light MSer lol. That’s enough to score Marriott Platinum.

Fixed, thanks

My referral still pulls 60k but I see 75k using the link above with incognito trick.

For me, Personal Platinum 75,000 incognito offer has been around for several weeks now so this isn’t that recent.

YMMV on personal referral offers, when I applied earlier this month for incognito 75,000 offer, my referral offer only showed the 60,000 offer. Now it shows 75,000 offer so in hindsight I should have waited but never would have thought a 75,000 incognito offer would stick around for this long.

William Charles

Yeah what’s recent is that it’s showing up on referrals

Hey doc, I have a question. So my PRG has a 60K upgrade to Platinum offer. If I apply for this Platinum 75K offer and get approved then do the upgrade from PRG to Platinum, will I get both the 75K + 60 K?

William Charles

I think you need to apply directly first and then do the upgrade later to get both. Not 100% on that though

I think this is a trap set up by RATs.

I have a 60k offer on login to upgrade my Everyday card, that does not have the previous applicant language. Can I apply for that and get a match to 75k? I have had both the regular, Mercedes and business plats.

Really want the Schwab plat at some point for 1.25 on a lot of points. Not worried about much with Amex (getting lots of bonuses, clawbacks, denials, etc) My only worry is getting a platinum and then them changing the procedures down the line and not allowing another Schwab plat. I guess I still could get the 0 bonus Schwab and use the airline credit, Saks credit, and Uber credit, and the 1.25 but $550 is a hefty price for that. Everyone pretty confident Amex will continue to allow multiple platinum’s?

Incognito on the standard link is still showing 60k for me, unfortunately. Tried different browsers and even VPN. Appears to be YMMV?

William Charles

Incognito is always YMMV
