No, 40,000 Points Isn’t The Best Offer On The American Express Personal Platinum
Recently there has been a lot of talk about the American Express Personal Platinum card because of the changes coming after March 30th. Unfortunately some other sites have been promoting an offer for 40,000 points. The reason that this is unfortunate is because there is an offer for 75,000 points after $5,000 spend, I understand that this offer requires some people to use incognito mode to get it – but other sites should at least be presenting it as an option.
In October of 2014 we decided to remove all credit card affiliate links from the site, it’s a decision I’m glad we made but we probably do make significantly less as a result. On the flip side, because of that decisions readers generally trust our recommendations more and are more likely to recommend this site to friends & strangers alike.
Hopefully this post serves as a reminder to always be looking for a better sign up bonus before signing up for a new credit card (we list some of the best offers here). This post isn’t meant as an attack or to toot our own horn, just a friendly reminder. As always if you want to learn more about American Express cards, start here.
