[Dead] American Express Pre-Approval Referral Offers (No Lifetime Language) [Ends 1/9/19]

Unfortunately these offers are no longer available.

Update 1/7/19: Friendly reminder that these pre-approval referral offers end on 1/9/19. Fingers crossed a new round of people is targeted.

Update 12/09/18: Some bonuses have started posting from these offers. Just keep in mind our warning. To discuss these deals click here.

American Express has started sending out e-mails offering existing cardholders the ability to refer up to two friends for a pre-approved offer. The subject lines for these offers are ‘you’re invited to share a pre-approved offer’ and I’ve seen offers for the Platinum & SPG personal card. I’m not sure why they are calling these pre-approved offers, as they have zero idea who you will refer. I doubt they will let me refer somebody with a bankruptcy on file and approve them for example.

That being said these offers are interesting for the simple fact that they don’t contain the standard ‘Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility.’ language. One reader applied for one of these offers and despite having the card previously there was no pop up box informing them that they would not be eligible for the bonus. The downside is that you can only refer two friends. The actual application page also requires you to verify the e-mail address the offer was sent to. If these do indeed bypass the lifetime language, then they will be highly sought after.

Feel free to leave your emails in the comments to refer or get referred. Also please note some idiots are sending out regular referral links, make sure you double check any offers you receive to ensure they don’t have the lifetime language. 

Discussion post about these offer here.

As an aside, does Amex tolerate a little MS for MSR on co-branded cards? I couldn’t help myself but buy fee-free VGCs at a store that provides L3 data to Amex. But I bought them because they were fee-free, and not because I wanted to MS.

Vulnox
Vulnox

It’s always tough to tell what AMEX will do, but buying gift cards isn’t against any rules, and AMEX is heavily used by companies and companies often buy gift cards. The only time I have heard people have trouble is when they are buying $1500 in gift cards every week from Staples in order to hit their MSR. They can definitely still make a case it’s for a business, but AMEX may want additional proof in such cases. A few hundred in GCs isn’t even going to be a blip to them.

In my last job I was a team manager and we had company AMEXs and I was buying a few hundred in gift cards every month for various things, it’s definitely not unusual behavior.

Subhuman-Male
Subhuman-Male

Thanks a lot for your response! That’s certainly reassuring. Mine’s a personal card, though, but I only bought 3 Gift Cards, so I hope Amex won’t care. I’m okay with not receiving points for those GC purchases.

On cobrands I got the SPG Lux bonus with a lot of MS and no consequences yet,

They generally don’t care on cobranded. On MR cards it specifically states gift cards don’t count.

Question, since there’s no lifetime language, if I get the Platinum card cancel in a year, I still can get it again with sign up bonus?

tinytavosa
tinytavosa

No. No lifetime language is only helpful if you’ve already had the card. The next time you get it, the offer terms you have at that time of the second application are what apply, not what you do today.

You need to take risk that you will not get the bonus even there was no pop up box informing you that you would not be eligible for the bonus. DP says Amex reserve any rights to withhold the bonus anytime.
