CardMatch Offering Some People 100,000 Points On American Express Platinum

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • 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 Offers’ not just pre-qualified offers

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

  2. JordanE says:

    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?


  3. Ninja421 says:

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

  4. Lei says:

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

  5. Jey says:

    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.

    • Yeah I don’t think it’s worth keeping long term either, but in first year:

      $200 in uber
      $200 in airline credits * 2
      Lounge access
      100k bonus

      Worth it IMO

    • LNK says:

      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

    • lingua says:

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

  6. Alex says:

    I am seeing the following fine print:

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

  7. kit kit says:

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

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

  8. J says:

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

  9. benjinito says:

    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.

  10. swg says:

    Got it, thank you, sir!

  11. Lantean says:

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

  12. captainsave says:

    Looks like they fix it. 🙁

    Sorry, an error occurred.

    • scoreseasy says:

      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.

  13. Chucks says:

    Pulled up the 100k offer on mobile.

  14. wsupnic says:

    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.

    • lei says:

      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.

  15. ktenorman says:

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

  16. Ivan X says:

    Got it, went to apply. At least on mobile device, Amex forced me to log in to continue with application, at which point they said the offer was no longer available. Went back later on a computer, and the offer no longer came up.

    • scoreseasy says:

      Just click on the cardmatch link again after you login to Amex. I got the offer after my second time on mobile.

      • Ivan X says:

        Thanks. I tried again in a Safari private window on a computer, and again got the offer; and the click through did not require any kind of login at Amex. Got approved. Thanks Doc!

        • Phil says:

          I tried a few times login but got to a page where the offer was not available anymore. After reading this, I copied/pasted into a private chrome window and was able to apply. Accepted within 30 secs. Thanks for the heads up!

        • Shaun says:

          Had similar issue. Saw offer on Cardmatch, followed link to Amex which displayed same offer. Amex made me login, at which point they said the offer was no longer available. Then went incognito – started back at Cardmatch, found offer, clicked to Amex, which displayed offer and didn’t ask me to login. Applied and success!

  17. YB says:

    Got the $100k offer can’t decide… I don’t have the budget for non-ms but this is the first time I’ve gotten this offer to show….

  18. Harman says:

    I’m only seeing Chase offers when I do this… Is it just me?

  19. scoreseasy says:

    Wife and I both got the offer. I was appproved, but my wife will hold off, as she is 4/24, and has another card falling off next month.

  20. Abey says:

    My spouse has a 50K Amex Gold offer. $0 AF.
    (Its basically the the same offer as the Business card).

  21. Spenny says:

    What is better the 100,000 with once a lifetime language OR normal bonus opening and closing with multiple sign up?

  22. Stange says:

    Did not get it

  23. Matt says:

    SO got the 100K offer. She’s about to drop to 4/24 this Jan, where I was planning on doing CP again… decisions decisions.

  24. Bo says:

    Doc – Would it be feasible for someone to share their link so that those who don’t get it can probably use the same link to apply? I don’t know if that link will work for others thou. And it might be risky as well due to that massive frozen and shutdown thing in the past.

  25. James says:

    I got the 100k offer, and the offer terms did *not* include the once per lifetime language (and I triple checked before applying and getting approved!)

    My wife got the 50k offer on the PRG also without once per lifetime language, but with the new anti-gaming language (which mine didn’t have). Also approved instantly.

    In both cases had to use private browsing/incognito mode otherwise the Apply link redirected to an account login page.

  26. BL says:

    Never have Amex Plat before and have been waiting for a 100K offer, but is it possible to get that sign up bonus for the Morgan Stanley version? As I think I’m qualified to get the Annual Fee waived there. If I am pre-approved for 100K, would calling Amex to ask for the Morgan Stanley version work? Thanks.

  27. Faz says:

    Oh just got the card like 10 days ago will they match lol?? Any trick?

  28. LC says:

    Anyone know how i can get this targeted? I am in 3 player mode and none of us are getting this offer. I tried different browser in ingognito, mobile phone and nothing. I need this offer!

  29. Gadget says:

    Apparently Cardmatch isn’t working right now. I tried 3 different browsers (Chrome, IE, & Firefox) and all clear out the address/email fields every time I try the search. Either that, or I got banned. LOL

    • Gadget says:

      I figured it out. I had a Flash update on my computer this morning that apparently needed a reboot to take effect. Thanks Windows 10.

  30. Lena says:

    I reviewed transactions on my Blue Cash card then I got the 50k offer on the PRG without once per lifetime language(closed last PGR 1 year ago) but with the new anti-gaming language. Approved instantly.
