The Offer

Direct link to offer (will error out if not targeted)

Our Verdict

Great offer if you’re targeted and if you’ve had the card before as it doesn’t contain any lifetime language (make sure to double check your own offer). We recently saw a similar offer on the Platinum Personal card (60,000 point sign up bonus) as well. We have seen bonuses of 65,000 recently, but that is split up over two years. As always if you have any questions regarding American Express credit cards I’d recommend you read this post first.

Login into your account, and then re-click the link. it worked for me that way.

Looks like I am targeted for this offer, and I’ve had PRG card before, but it was opened almost exactly 7 yrs ago and closed within a year. I’m not in a huge need for MR pts, and thinking I might be better off waiting til AMEX forgets that I’ve had this card before and applying for a higher pt value offer, whenever it appears. Thoughts?

Curious to see what others think about how this targeting is done. Could it be based on IP/location?

FYI, don’t give up if the link errors out for you. It does for me (both regular, and incognito), but I logged into my account and it was in the offers page.

The only issue I have personally is, because it is a personal card, it will bring me back to over 5/24 for Chase…

What exactly do you mean it was in your offers? Did you look through credit and charge cards and that was the offer given?

Hi Chris, which amex card did you log into, or you have all your amex cards in one online account?

Chris

It shows with the Amex Offers when I log in online, specifically with the personal Amex everyday credit card. Hope this helps.

I am being charged $175 second time for PRG. Am I grandfathered into some reduced annual fee?

James

Delayed but not grandfathered. Most likely $195 next year.

I closed my gold card a couple years back and received this email invite a couple months ago. There was no lifetime language so I signed up again. It appears they assigned me the same card number I had before, which worries me a bit.

I met my spend and called customer service and they say my bonus is pending. Time will tell if they pay off the bonus (and I’m still wary of a clawback from what I’ve heard from others).

TIP: Don’t add an authorized user right away. Shortly after signing up, I got an offer for 5,000 additional points for adding one with a $500 spend on their card (recognizing it probably affects my AU’s 5/24 status).

LOL the desperation of Amex to keep up the spend image for Wall Street. Happy to take the points

I wish Amex allowed pooling of points like Chase. I’m not targeted but my sister is.

You can’t pool them in your MR account but you can easily pool the points at the destination FFP account by adding AUs.

I rarely transfer since I mostly fly economy. And economy flights are so cheap that one can barely get 1 cent per mile redemption.

why is it always showing an error without even asking me to log in??

P
P

Yes. Me too. I opened it on dolphin browser on my phone just to test it. I’ve never used that browser to log in to Amex or access Amex site but it errored. I wonder if it’s IP specific.

Scratch that. VPN still returns an error

Need datapoints to back this deal. Anyone who got the bonus for PRG before received it a second time because once in a lifetime language was missing in the second offer? Thank you all.

1 out of 4 ppl is targeted. Signed up 1. Based on Biz Gold w/o lifetime language and received MRs, hopeful this being the same in receiving bonus

I’ve gone through every MR earning card…would love some new MR points…

Wishing I could get targeted one day.

For those that did apply for this offer, did you see your credit pulled? I’ve read a lot about Amex not pulling for offers like this, but am reluctant to try it on my own.
