[YMMV] American Express Platinum 125,000 Points + 10x Grocery/Gas For 6 Months

Update 6/2/21: More people targeted.

Update 3/27/21: More people targeted.

(Update: I changed ‘highly YMMV’ in the title to ‘YMMV’ since many readers in the comments have been able to pull this up using the prequal links, below.)

You’ve probably all seen our post about the terrific American Express Platinum signup offer of 100,000 points + 10x on grocery and gas for 6 months (up to $15,000 in spend).

We won’t rehash it all here again, just to add one little nugget: there are sporadic reports of those who are getting an increased version of this offer with 125,000 + 10x. Both the 100,000 and 125,000 offers have the same $5,000 in 6 months spend requirement. Uscreditcardguide reports that some are seeing this in their prequalified offers, and I see now in the Frequentmiler comments someone who apparently saw it even without prequal (?).

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).

We’ve reported in the past about the highly targeted 125,000 prequalified offer, and apparently that offer now has the 10x grocery/gas bonus attached to it as well. Again, you’re unlikely to get the offer, but it’s good to know it exists and can’t hurt to check your prequalified offers to see.

So I am confused…I got an email inviting me to apply for the 125K offer, but I have already had a Platinum cared like 10 years ago. I thought AMEX bonuses were once per lifetime? Has that policy changed?

Seems like a large spend in 3 months.

I got the 100k / $5000 spend. Nice thing is i also got an upgrade offer on Amex Everyday to Amex Preferred which is 40k after $2000 spend. So 140k points after 7k spend.

Which credit bureau do I need to unfreeze for these offers?

In my experience Amex looks at Experian only.
