[YMMV] American Express Personal Platinum 100,000 Points After $5,000 In Spend

The Offer

No direct link, see below

  • Earn 100,000 Membership Rewards points after $5,000 in spend on the American Express Personal Platinum card

platinum 100,000 offer

How To Get The Offer

This offer isn’t available to everybody and is a bit difficult to do. Try to follow these instructions and hope for the best:

  1. Clear browsing history/open a new incognito window
  2. Go to & search for American Express
  3. Click cards > Charge and Credit Card Offers > Check for offers

You want it to show you the offers without having to log in (let me know if it shows when you log in as well). If you see the 60,000 link then keep trying, people have gotten it to work even after initially seeing that the first time. This comment is also insanely helpful.

Our Verdict

Will this be treated like the leaked Platinum links and accounts frozen? I don’t see why it would be, but you never know with American Express these days. This offer also does include the once per lifetime language unfortunately. American Express is currently offering all types of incentives to sign up/keep the Platinum card. We’ve seen 50,000 retention bonuses, 60,000 point upgrade offers and targeted 60,000 point offers with no lifetime language.

This offer is basically as good as it gets for the American Express Platinum card and if you can get it to show, I’d sign up as long as you’re comfortable with the annual fee. As always read through these things everybody should know about American Express cards first.

60000 for me

couldn’t see anything before logging in, after login saw 60k

This is night and day different than a leaked link

60000 for me.

60K in both google chrome incognito and Firefox private window

Does this have once per lifetime language?

Not having any luck. Tried a few times. Anyone successful?

same here. only 60,000 – whether not logged in, logged in, or submitting partial personal info to solicit offers.

Any chance AMEX will “match” this offer like they have with the SPG and hilton. Those were public offers though.

Try VPN into china

Tried. Didn’t work.

after i go to the “Charge and Credit Card Offers” link, I don’t see “Check for offers” link anywhere

Using Chrome incognito mode, I can see “Earn up to 75,000 Membership Rewards® points Earn 50,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $10,000 and an extra 25,000 points after you spend an additional $10,000 all on qualifying purchases on the Business Platinum Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership.”

How/where is once in a lifetime worded? In Terms and Conditions?

Oops, this is business platinum card.

Ummm Baidu method’s been around right? Just got the 75k for $5k, but locked in the $450 AF, so I feel ok about it.

I got the 60,000 point after $5000 spend.
However, I also got the 50,000 point after $2000 spend on Amex PRG.
Got approved in one Click since I was already logged in.
Easiest application ever !!!
Thanks DoC.

How do I check these offers without it asking me to log in if I’m already a member?
