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

Update 7/13/20: More people targeted.

Update 5/6/20: More people targeted. Try this method.

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.

Cardmatch now requires email address to see offers? Get ready for SPAM.

Not having any success with this even trying the proposed method. Seeing 60,000 point offers and 75,000 point offers.

I got targeted for this. Is it worth getting given the lack of travel? I have an upcoming 5k bill so the SUB would be easy to achieve. Never had an MR Amex.

People discuss whether or not to apply for any amex cards before they see the 100K offer (since the 100K offer has been far less likely to be shown to people who already have one or more amex cards) all the time. The 125K offer is definitely worth it, especially if you only hold it for one year. If at some point you got a Schwab card, you could cash out $1912.50 in your brokerage – this plus the card benefits add up to WAY more than the $550 annual fee.

Schwab is 1.25 cpp cashout option so it would be $1562.5 for the 125k plus a little from from the $5k spend.

125k plat and the 60k from schwab, both with a $5k spend, gets you at least 195k MR which is $2437.50, less $1100 for the card fees, plus any of the benefits you use so you’re Looking at at least $1300 in “profit”

Able to get a 75k for $5k spend offer by messing with the spelling of my name in incognito, but that’s the highest I’ve seen after several attempts/combinations.

FYI: 75k/$5k is available with referral link in incognito.

Could you help explain how you got that to work? I’ve only been seeing a $60k referral.

You can try using a VPN or just keep closing and opening your incognito tab and trying again. VPN usually does the trick for me.

Sometimes trying different browsers may work.

I’ve been trying for the 100k offer for years. I never see the platinum card in any of the card match or Amex pre-qualified offers for myself or P2. Feels bad man.
