[YMMV] 60,000 Point Upgrade Offer To American Express Platinum

The Offer

Direct link to offer (might not work)

  • There is currently an upgrade offer from the Premier Rewards Gold card to the American Express Personal Platinum card. You’ll receive 60,000 points after $5,000 in spend within the first three months.

The Fine Print

Our Verdict

You’ll want to read these two posts before considering this:

This is a pretty great offer as there is no pull hard and you should be able to get this bonus even if you’ve held the card before (just make sure to check the fine print as some of these upgrade offers contain the no bonus language). In addition there are datapoints of people upgrading to a card they’ve never had before, getting the upgrade bonus and then still being eligible for another bonus down the track.

If you have any questions surrounding upgrade offers, I strongly recommend you read this post first. You can read our guide to the new American Express Platinum benefits here. There are also currently the following upgrade offers on other cards:

The link does not work for me, but my PRG is less than one year old. Can someone with a PRG at or older than 1 year try it out and report back?

Anyone else getting this screen? https://cl.ly/1V3G2m251E2q

(I hope you aren’t for your sake, but I guess you can consider this a DP)

I’m the one that sent it to doc. My prg will hit 1 year next month. I had to be logged in for the link to qork. I originally saw a green bar on my prg screen and a bigger pop up when I scrolled down. Was also targeted for the bce to bcp which I took like 2 weeks ago. Applied for spg biz a week ago.

Just so we can narrow down the possible factors:

Do you already hold a personal Plat, and if so, is it being managed on the same online account that you saw the PRG upgrade offer on?

Thanks 🙂

Never had platinum and probably don’t plan to do this offer. Applied for prg and spg last year on same day when there was the 35k spg offer. My prg application was via a 50k 1k spend mailer I received.

Nah I still get the error screen. My PRG is less than one year old however.

I’m seeing the same error message as E Dantes (after logging into the online account that manages my primary PRG), so it appears that I was not targeted.

My PRG is approximately 9.5 months old, and the same online account also manages an active personal Plat as well. If you look at the BGR -> Biz Plat upgrade offer targeting though, neither of these should prevent targeting (was targeted for the BGR upgrade at 3 months old while already holding an even older Biz Plat on the same online account), so there may well be other factors at play.

Does sending money via paypal still work for meeting minimum spend or is that YMMV as MS?

I received this 60k upgrade offer for my PRG. It flashed at the top of the screen when I logged into Amex from my laptop. On my 23rd month with the card right now.

Does it still show up for you if you log in? Can’t get mine to pop up anymore and phone support says it never existed.

Yes – just tried again and the upgrade banner was at the top of the screen after logging in.

Lucky! I can’t get mine to show up anymore. I can’t get the pop up window to show up anymore. I like how all the reps i talked to on the phone say that no offer like that exists, 60k was only for new applicants lol.
