CardMatch/AmEx Pre-Qual Offering Some People 100,000 Points On American Express Platinum

Update 11/18: Another round targeted

Update 10/04/18: New round of people targeted

Update 8/31/2018: Another round of people have been targeted.

Update 07/11/2018: Reposting as we’ve now had another 4-5 reports of people seeing this offer when they weren’t previously targeted.

Update 05/27/2018: Reposting again as new round of people are seeing the offer.

Update 04/09/2018: Reposting as as a new load of people have been again targeted. It’s worth checking American Express for pre-qualified offers directly as well.

We originally posted this on November 7th, 2017, reposting again on December 1st, 2017. Reposted again on February 17th for same reason. It seems that some people that weren’t originally targeted are now being offered this 100,000 points offer, so it might be worth rechecking if you tried it before. Goodluck

The Offer

Direct link to offer or here

  • Reader @djmomgenes received and offer of 100,000 points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months on the American Express personal Platinum card when checking CardMatch for pre-approved offers. Also make sure you’re choosing view ‘All Matches’ not just pre-qualified offers, you’ll see this option in the left sidebar (Categories > Pre-qualified/CardMatch Special Offers/All Matches)

Card Details

Our Verdict

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. If this doesn’t work, you can also try getting the offer another way. 100,000 points after $5,000 in spend is usually as good as the offers get on the personal Platinum card, although they sometimes have targeted offers for 150,000 points after $10,000 in spend but those are quite rare. 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.

Theres also an incognito 75k offer public

Can you share details of how to pull it up? I’ve tried daily in incognito, no luck.

I only get it in Safari Private browser

Go to the page incognito. Leave the page up for a couple of hours. Hit the refresh button and it shall appear.

I got the 100,000 pre-approval.

I have not gotten the AMEX Platinum before. Does anyone know if the once in a lifetime language exclusion means I can get this card AGAIN at some point and receive the bonus?


@Doc it’s $5000 spend, not $3000. That or you put the wrong screenshot

saw the 100K offer, applied. Thank you, DoC

Given how difficult the incidental credit and uber credit can be used, the only thing i like about Amex Plat is the Centurion Lounge access. Now that Priority pass seems to be constantly improved, i’m not sure if the $550 fee can be justifiable.

I got 100K offer last year Well, so far for this year

Uber credit (used up each month via Uber/Uber Eat)
Airline credit to UA Gift Registry ( 2x $200 for first year) which I used to buy a UA flight from NYC-SFO

In additional for the credits The Gold Status from Marriott and Hilton got me room upgraded in 3 properties (Paris, Seoul, Istanbul). 2 upgrade to a suite at Marriott and 1 upgrade to deluxe room in Hilton and all upgrade included free breakfasts and access to the executive lounge (free drinks, happy hour) free mini bar at the hotels.

And I got the Amex offer for Air France for 20K with the 5X ticket a $1100 ticket got me 25000 MR points ..

So yes I am keeping it for the next year

Been using both the uber credit and 100k in points for uber and its not difficult at all…

I am seeing the following fine print:

“Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.”

That’s been Amex’s “once per lifetime” language for a while. However, if you have a different Platinum card, you’d still be eligible for this one.

Whoops, not sure where the “for a while” part came from.

Yes, but doc mentions above, “Once per lifetime language is not included in this offer, meaning if you’ve had the card/bonus before you are eligible.”

I was hoping on jumping on a second platinum card with this…

As am I. Sadly. First line under “Offer Terms” in the full T&C page.

“Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.”

I see that when I click on “Rates & Fees”

Damn I’ve been holding off on an AX Plat application for a long time. Only prequalified for two Cap1 cards

DoC, I was not able to pull this up for myself, however it did show up for SO. I clicked on the link under SO’s logon, and it brought me to the Amex site. I logged in as myself (not SO) and it worked. Applied and approved under my name.

Got it, thank you, sir!

I got everyday preferred 30k for $2k spend… not terrible but i’ll pass

Looks like they fix it. 🙁

Sorry, an error occurred.

I got that error at first. I just clicked the link from cardmatch and it brought it back, as I was logged in to Amex.

Pulled up the 100k offer on mobile.

And now it’s just Chase…on both laptop and mobile

Thanks Doc! Got it and applied. For some reason, I wasn’t able to add the card to my existing account, so I had to create another one.

dont have to, you can log in to your current Amex account, online chat CSR and ask them to help you add the card to your account. But if you already create one, not sure if you can combine ti.

Got it and applied. Had been waiting for 100k Amex Platinum for a long time. Thanks, Doc.
