Our Verdict

You can get a bonus of 100,000 without upgrading. The advantage to upgrading is that you should be able to get the bonus even if you’ve had the Business Platinum before. If that’s you and you’re targeted then this offer is worth considering as normally you wouldn’t be able to get the bonus again. Just keep in mind the $595 annual fee. That’s partially offset by the $200 airline credit and other benefits (e.g lounge access) but still might not be worth it for some especially if you already have another variation of a Platinum card. Spend requirement of $10,000 might also be difficult for a lot of readers to meet.

If you have any questions about upgrade offers, please read this post before asking any questions. General American Express questions are likely answered here.

applied new card, and then upgraded the biz gold on the same day, can I get both after meeting spending?

just be careful on 150K, I got an invite but I think it is a personal link, not publicly available.

That is an application offer, not an upgrade offer FYI

I got an e-mail for the 150k Business Plat after $15k spend in three months. It is for an application and NOT an upgrade, but it doesn’t have lifetime language. I will probably do the 150 offer since it won’t hurt me on 5/24

Could you share the link for the offer? Seems like often times it works for a lot of people

I just got an offer in email as well – surprising as I have literally never gotten anything from AmEx. My offer says I am preapproved but then at the beginning of the fine print it says “Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card. ” I closed business platinum in August 2019 so not sure if this will bypass lifetime language or not. Any inputs?

Finally, the Upgrade button works as expected. It did not a few weeks ago (as others reported as well).

I got 130,000 target upgrade offer but it says “Offer is available for first-time upgrades to the new Business Platinum Card only and for one Card account only.”.
I upgraded it once on 2016 and received upgrade bonus (downgraded it on 2017). Am I eligible to receive this upgrade bonus?

I got the “offer is not available” message when trying to click upgrade button even though the offer shows up for my biz gold. Has anyone been able to get the 130k offer by calling them and telling that you are targeted but not able to apply online?

Same issue. I called and the rep said I can’t see it. Advised me to call technical department for online issue.

I have asked the technical team to check the issue with no response from them but the offer disappeared today from my account. Such a waste as I did not fill the application when it was working a month before.

This shows up in my Offers section, but then doesn’t work when I click through. The Biz Gold is a bit less than a year old, so I’m thinking that’s why.
