[YMMV] Amex Platinum Cardholders: Get 10,000 Bonus Points with 10 Purchases of Any Amount

The Offer

Direct Link (login required, offer is targeted)

Some Amex Platinum cardholders are getting a fantastic spend offer:

  • Make 10 purchases of any amount and get 10,000 Membership Rewards points

The Fine Print

  • Enroll by 12/31/17 and earn 10,000 Membership Rewards®points after you make 10 or more separate purchases on your Platinum Card® starting from the date you complete enrollment until 1/31/18
  • Points will be credited to your account 8-12 weeks after you make your 10th purchase
  • Eligible purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Member on a single Card account
  • A transaction where you buy multiple items counts as one purchase
  • Purchases may fall outside of the purchase period (and therefore not be eligible) in some cases, such as a delay in merchants submitting transactions to us or if the purchase date differs from the date you made the transaction. (For example, if you buy goods online, the purchase date may be the date the goods are shipped.)
  • Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, purchases of traveler’s checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards; person-to-person payments, or purchases of any cash equivalents
  • Additional Card Members on your account may not enroll in this offer
  • To receive points, your Card account must not be cancelled or past due at the time of fulfillment
  • American Express reserves the right to modify or revoke offer at any time

Our Verdict

Wow, this almost rivals the 10k Pay-Over-Time bonus. It’s obviously a no-brainer for anyone who got the offer, though it’s targeted to a lucky few. Let us know if you had success without having received the email. Might be targeted based on upcoming annual fee or some other criteria.

As per the comments, even those who did not get the email might be eligible. Check yours!

Hat tip to D.

    Another offer that’s… NOT YOURS!

  2. P says:

    I got digitally slapped in the face. Haha

  3. Niel says:

    Thanks DoC, I am eligible:-)

  4. Josh says:

    Nothing for both Platinum’s in my household. Bummer, this one seems easy.

  5. Boufneesha says:

    Got the offer. Annual fee not until July

  6. mommafrica says:

    Wish that they had this for the Blue Bus Plus. The Newegg $.01 deal would work great for this. The Samsung Pay promo, for those who haven’t completed it yet, can combine the two for $.10 and an easy 10K pts.

    • Bob says:

      Oh Man, i forgot about this. Thanks for reminding. I used that method for the Chase and Samsung rewards 2000 promo with Samsung pay.

  7. tj says:

    3 platinum’s, 0 eligible 🙁

  8. YoLaViajera says:

    Did not work for me. I have the Business version.

  9. R Johnson says:

    Not here either on regular plat or MB plat.

  10. Ender says:

    Worked for me. Didn’t receive email though

  11. Vj says:

    Got it thanks doc

  12. mcafeeee says:

    I got a “sorry our systems are temporarily unavailable” message. I wonder if that means I am not targeted. Will try again later.

  13. Sam says:

    Just paid my annual fee, and I wasn’t targeted.

  14. Mike says:

    Thanks DoC. No email but eligible.

  15. Adam says:

    Damn, never get targeted for these offers.

    Personal Plat, AF isn’t due until next summer.

  16. Matt says:

    Enrolled but did not get the email. Annual fee due in March, will be end of second year. I doubt I was getting a retention bonus so this is really nice.

    I’m genuinely shocked because they never target me for anything.

  17. Kat says:

    0 for 2 here. But then, we actually use our Plat AMEX pretty much every month, so they may not think they have to entice us to use it.

  18. Bob says:

    I didnt get an email, but when i clicked on the link and logged in i was eligible. Easy 10,000 points. The terms and conditions do outline that “purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, purchases of gift cards; person-to-person payments, or purchases of any cash equivalents” are not included. Thanks Doc!

  19. Changing the title to YMMV instead of Targeted as people are registering without getting the e-mail

  20. Randy. says:

    I’m shocked to find that I’m eligible for an offer for the first time in years. I used the link in this article and it showed my personal plat as eligible and got the email after enrolling. AF hit just couple of months back and I was able to get 20k retention offer for third year.

  21. J. Grant says:

    Of all the cards, my worst offers are on my plat card. Waiting to collect 200 in airline travel reimbursements and then the card gets the aXe in early 2018.

  22. ktenorman says:

    “This page is temporarily unavailable.”

    Oh well. My plat is barely 1mo old (just got my 100k signup bonus) so not surprising.

  23. Mike says:

    I was eligible and I did not receive the email. My AF was in September.

  24. Max says:

    No for Mercedes, surprisingly yes for personal Platinum. I didn’t get an email but received the confirmation after enrolling. Annual fee due in May, and I do use the card. Sweet offer.

  25. Robert says:

    Tried link, not eligible. Personal Platinum, opened account in May of this year. Barely put any spend on the card other than for 5X airline after hitting the signup bonus

  26. CHarlie says:

    Didnt get , heavy card user .

    DoC Can you also ask the users who got it through the link if they use the card regularly or once in a while . Just want to see if they target to ppl who dont use much card ??

  27. mishyq says:

    Thanks DoC 🙂 my personal plat is eligible for the offer even though I did not receive any email. AF is not due until next summer.

  28. Wayne says:

    I clicked on the link for the heck of it. I usually don’t get these and I was surprised. I’m eligible! Thank you for posting.

  29. k8 says:

    Thanks DoC. No luck on personal plat. Received $300 credit to retain the card just last week. No complaints for missing this one.

  30. Jon says:

    Never get targeted for these things

  31. Shyam says:

    Thanks Doc, enrolled in the offer.
    Haven’t got the email and annual fee is not due until June and one transaction per billing statement.
    Received a confirmation email after registration.

  32. Sean says:

    No email but registered. Annual fee due in May.

  33. jill says:

    Awesome!! Thanks, doc. I was targeted for this but haven’t gotten any email on it.

  34. Ron says:

    Got the email offer, must be my lucky day. Usually I never get any offers from Amex, every now and then they’ll tell me to add a card member spend xxxx dollars for 1000-1500 points. Nothing this good.
