Our Verdict

There was a previous upgrade offer for 50,000 points after $10,000 in spend, this is the same but with the ability to earn an additional 25,000 points with $20,000 total spend across five months. You should read the following two posts before considering this:

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:

Seems to be quite targeted. I was (and still am) targeted for the ongoing 50k BGR upgrade offer, but was not targeted for this one.

Looks like both upgrade links (75k / 50k) are no longer available.
