AmEx Pre-Qual Offering Some People 125,000 Points On American Express Platinum with $5,000 Spend

Update 11/24/19: Looks like more people are targeted, worth checking again.

The Offer

Direct link to offer terms

  • Gisy06 received an offer on the American Express personal Platinum card of 125,000 points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months when checking their prequalified offers.

You can check your Amex Prequalified offers here. Could also make sense to try checking CardMatch for pre-approved offers (see our original post here).

Card Details

Our Verdict

The best we’ve seen in the past on this card is a prequalified offer is for 100k, this one is obviously significantly better. It’s always a good idea to regularly check for pre-approved offers as often they have higher than normal bonuses such as this. Obviously no guarantee you’ll see this offer, in fact I imagine most people won’t.

Keep in mind this does have a big annual fee of $550, but you do get the Uber and airline credits as well as good lounge access. As always read through these things everybody should know about American Express cards first. It might also make sure to check American Express directly for pre-approved offers.

Thats the maximum I have seen. I don’t know how to get targeted for this offer

Hung

Based on his response this is his first Amex card and he used to be an Amex AU .

I can’t even get the 100k even though I have never had an Amex card 😔

Is triple dip still a thing with these cards? Or are credits no longer linked to calendar years?

You sure can triple dip. Now is the time to do that. The issue is getting decent value out of the credit.

But gc method doesn’t work anymore!

Exactly so these credits are pretty worthless unless you are trying to get $200 drunk on tiny bottles on a plane.

How can one triple dip when it’s only november? I was able to triple dip my business amex platinum when I applied december 15 2016

Please note that Amex Priority Pass membership doesn’t allow for their restaurants… that’s a much lower prop value.

Till now I can only dream of 100K offer. Now, I have another dream to pursue.

100K MR to be clawed back…
Reason: TBD.

I told the Amex Executive Office that every time a comment like this one is posted, it instantly has double-digit thumb-ups. The only “trust” Amex has left is that people fully trust them to remove/reduce card benefits and to claw back rewards points properly earned — like 8 months AFTER the fact. Today’s rewards are tomorrow’s abuse/gaming/reason for total shutdown.

I don’t know what you’re in this game for, but for me, it isn’t “trust.” I’m there to take money and points from them. Hard to blame them if they don’t “trust” my motives.
This is like abusing a free giveaway at a store, then asking for a manager when the store puts a limit on how many free things you can get. People just don’t want to be told “no.”

Confirmed – just got approved for the 125k offer. First Amex application, credit score 780+.

CONGRATS! I too have a high score hovering around 812. How did you get it? I keep checking card match but nothing. The only amex card I have is the Bonvoy which I’ve had a couple of years.
Thanks for your help!!

I just checked the offers – I think its because I’ve never had an Amex card before, but that’s just my theory. I checked on Pre-qual after I saw the post.

I’m still not impressed. I want to see 200k offer for a $550 af card with weak point earning categories. The citi prestige is still better than this card after it’s been nerfed.

sure, lets offer $2000 minimum worth of points for $550! that seems like a winning business strategy!

That’s three LH F one-ways across the Atlantic… you value that at $550?
Wow…

Also, what was your SUB on Citi Prestige? Mine was only 50k. So you think Amex Plat is 150k points SUB worse?

YoniPDX

120K is good for a RT Int’l Delta One suites, booked with VA. $550 AF has limited value from card benefits, but SUB and larger card referrals – and some airline fee work around (no GC, some are valuable i.e.for AS MVP 75K).

Wife shows 100k on CardMatch but 125k directly on AmEx site.

Never had AmEx before. Except she is AU on my current Platinum. Right around 800 TransUnion scores according to various other cards
