A Recap Of All The American Express Credit Card Offers Available Via Incognito Mode

American Express have been offering more and more higher than normal sign up bonuses that are only available when you’re not logged in. The easiest way to get these offers to appear is by using incognito mode in google Chrome (or similar in other browsers). I thought it’d be useful to go through the offers that are still available through this method:

american-express-green

Frequent Miler/Miles to Memories recently suggested that the American Express Platinum 100,000 offer was back via this method, I have a pretty good way to check for all these offers (unfortunately it doesn’t actually work for applying) and couldn’t get it to show and I didn’t see any successes in the comments so I didn’t include it in the round up (I did get the 75,000 offer to show, that’s why I included that).

I’m pretty sure I haven’t missed anything, but if you’ve seen any other offers in incognito mode then please let me know. You can try using a proxy to improve your chances of seeing these offers (they seem to have some sort of geographical requirement sometimes), just be aware you’ll have to submit your data over that proxy as well – not a good idea in my opinion.

You can also sometimes see these, or even better offers by checking your pre-approved offers with American Express or CardMatch.

If you’re going to apply for one, throw in the green charge and ED for an addl 50k. Combined pulls and only an addl $2k in spend is great.

Dave C, I don’t understand your comment. When you say “If you’re going to apply for one”, Which “one” are you talking about? Are you talking 3 total? That seems to be what you are saying, that we can get an add’l 50K thru add’l 2K spend. So which “one” can these be combined with? Or are you saying total 50K, not addl 50K?

I thought we can do a charge/credit as one pull, but I am not understanding how to do 3, if that is what you are saying.

Also, can someone comment, if we got the PRG several years ago, can we still get bonus? Why would it be in my special offers when I log in, if the bonus isn’t available?

Oh also, a while back I got the Gold charge for 25k/ $1k as well. Not sure if it’s still around, but another great option for combined pulls.

i think the green card is a great deal… 25k points for hardly any spend? i can spend $1k in a week…

Thanks for actually listing the best deals and not just referral links, you are the best so I am always happy to share deals when I hear about them.

@Doctor of Credit – Does the amex once/lifetime rule allow me to get the Mercedes Benz 75k offer and still apply for and receive an offer bonus for the regular Amex Platinum in the future?

Chuck

Reports indicate that each Platinum is usually considered separate, so you should still be able to get it.

I have not been able to get these to show up incognito in almost a year. Used to be able to get it all the time. I have tried several hundred times over the last year to get my wife the same deals I got…any ideas or is my IP just burned?

Regarding the PRG 50K bonus: I tried incognito dozens of times with no success. Instead I went to Credit Karma and looked at what credit cards were pre-approved for me. The Amex PRG 50K bonus was available.

Any opinions on combining credit pulls with applying for the AmEx Green @ 25K/1K and the MB Plat @ 75K/3K? Any combo that people think would be better?

I called AMEX and asked if I could apply for the AMEX Business Platinum Card which comes with 100,000 bonus AMEX reward points (and a hefty $450 annual fee). I was approved. the only catch is you have to be able to charge $10K in the 1st 90 days. I am not sure I can meet that challenge however. Anyone know a quick & dirty method to meet the high spending limit in 90 days? e.g. funding a bank or a debit card with the AMEX credit card (and have it count as a purchase and not a cash advance)

Did you have to give a reponse code to get that offer??? I’ve been trying for months to get the 100k business platinum card.

Opinions on combining hard pulls for the AmEx Green @ 25K/1K and the MB Plat @ 75K/3K? Any other AmEx combinations that would be recommended more highly than this one? The goal is to build up point balances as much as possible. Thanks in advance

If the goal is highest points, throw in the Regular Plat at 100k / $3k

The Gold charge card should have a 25k bonus too.

I just got the Amex Everyday 25k / $2k to pop today. Incognito 2nd try. Used a VPN and randomly selected Dallas for what its worth. Applied and was approved (although had to call in and verify identity). So looks like its still available.

I have a few questions about the MR program and couldn’t find answers on the website. I’d appreciate if someone could help. Currently I have ~70K MR from the signup bonus of the Gold Business, which I plan to close soon. If I get an Amex Everyday will I retain those points? Any limitations to be aware of regarding using or transferring MR points having the Amex Everyday?
