[Dead] Amex Platinum 100,000 Bonus is Back!

The Offer

The public link for 100,000 Membership Rewards points bonus on the Amex Platinum card (the standard Platinum card) is back.

Direct Link (go incognito if it doesn’t work)

  • Sigup for a new personal Amex platinum card and get 100,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $3,000 within 3 months
  • $450 annual fee, NOT waived for the first year

Numerous Reddit users already applied and got approved for the card using this link.

The Fine Print

  • As usual, you can’t get this bonus if you already had the personal Platinum card

Card Details

All Platinum cards come with lots of benefits, among them:

  • $200 airline incidental credit per calendar year
  • Priority pass select
  • Fee Credit for Global Entry or TSA Pre✓

Our Verdict

This offer comes up everyone once in a while; if you are on the fence for a personal Platinum, now is a good time to jump on this as we don’t know how long it will last. It also has a low $3,000 spend threshold.

You can get the $200 airline credit twice (once in 2016 and once in 2017) which mostly offsets the annual fee. I did the previous 100k offer and it was well worth it. Not sure if we’ve ever seen a public offer of more than 100k on the personal card.

There’s also the Mercedes-Benz personal Platinum card available with a lower 75k bonus, and you can find here lots of other targeted Amex offers. It’s probably worth staggering your Amex Platinum cards so that you can get the premium benefits from each one separately.

I’ve had the Ameriprise version of this card a year ago. Can I get this card?

You can definitely get the card, and most datapoints say you’ll get the bonus

Wonderful deal, but I’m going to pass for now. Wife already has the Platinum so that gets us into Centurion lounges, and another opportunity will always come around. I also think I’ll get the Prestige next month when I close my Ritz to take advantage of the lower AF while I have a Citigold account open, so now isn’t the time for me.

Hi, Chuck!

Last yr I was offered an upgrade fr my PRG to a regular Platinum with a 25k bonus but without a HP since the account number stayed the same. I did upgrade and just recently downgraded it back to PRG. If I Apply for this 100k Plat, will I not get any bonus at all, or will I get the difference of 75k since I already got 25k?

Man, just got the MB plat! I’ll pass til next year, after I cancel the MB. If I were to get this, I’d have to throw in the Business Gold 75k / $5k. That’d be 250k MR / $11k spend. Without Serve the spend is just a little too much for me. I’ll take my 75k MR and wait til next round.

If you’re gonna get it, throw in the Green / Gold with 25k / $1k!

I opened a Ameriprise Platinum card just a year ago and it’s still open. I was planning to close it once the $450 annual fee posts and if there isn’t a good retention deal. Do you think I’m eligible for this offer while the Ameriprise Platinum is open? The terms and condition says – “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.” From my understanding these two products must be considered as different.

Thanks. Been waiting for this. Surprised it showed up for me without incognito browser. Never see any good AmEx offers.
