Platinum International Dollar Card – 100k Points + No AF First Year (Must Be Resident Of Latin America, Caribbean, Spain Or Switzerland)

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The American Express Platinum International Dollar card is currently offering a sign up bonus of 100,000 Membership Rewards after spending US$10,000 in the first three months.

Card Details

  • Must be a resident of Latin American, Caribbean, Spain and Switzerland
  • Must have US$100,000 in assets in a US bank account and be a Non US resident
  • Annual fee of US$795 is waived first year
  • Sign up bonus valid until March 31st, 2019
  • Same lounge access as normal Platinum card (e.g Centurion, Priority Pass Select, Delta SkyClub, Plaza Premium, Airspace & escape lounges)
  • Card earns at the following rates:
    • 2x membership rewards points on U.S. restaurant purchases
    • 1x membership rewards points on all other purchases

Our Verdict

As far as I can tell these are just normal Membership Rewards points, so the transfer partners should be the same. I couldn’t see any mention of any Uber or airline incidental credit, so the card is clearly not as good as the regular Platinum card. I don’t see any lifetime language in the terms, so I wonder if it’s churnable? Update there is lifetime language in the terms. Obviously most readers aren’t residents of Latin America, Carribean, Spain or Switzerland with $100,000 in assets so this post isn’t for you. If you do fall under this category this looks like a strong offer, although I can’t see any reason why you’d even consider keeping the card past the first year. I’m also not sure if this is just the standard sign up bonus or if this is an increased offer, wayback machine didn’t really seem to shed any light. I really just wrote up this post because I thought it was interesting.

The link you provided includes “Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.” in the fine print, so there is lifetime language.

Also, the text says both you must be a resident of one of the countries/regions mentioned and also that you must be a Non US Resident which seems to exclude dual residents (eg, those with a part-time property in the Dominican Republic or other Caribbean retirement destination).

Would exclude a dual US resident , but should have no effect since we have plenty of bonuses here.

Is an interesting offer since there are very few bonuses outside the US . Sounds like a Amex is wanting to build relationships with high net worth International customers.

This replaces the Goldman Sachs card as the unicorn platinum.
