Many people are seeing this offer now. Others get the error message: “We’re sorry, but our systems are currently down. Please consider applying by phone by calling 1-800-519-OPEN, or try again later after exploring our current offers.” This means you aren’t targeted.
Annual fee is waived the first year; second year and on there is an annual fee of $175.

-Airfare purchased directly from airlines

The public BGR offer is usually 25k, now 50k, and this 75k offer is the best we’ve seen. This targeted offer has been coming fairly regularly over the past year, and a new slew of emails from Amex were just sent out with this offer.
The biggest advantage of this targeted offer is that it doesn’t show the once-per-lifetime limitation usually shown on Amex cards, and many have reported getting the bonus more than once using these links.
If you aren’t seeing the offer, these tips might help:

Being that the annual fee is waived the first year, it’s well worth considering applying for the card if you get the offer. Check out the post 19 Things Everybody Should Know About American Express before applying.
