[YMMV] American Express Premier Rewards Gold 50,000 Point Offer

The Offer

Both offers should require $1,000 in spend within the first three months to trigger the bonus.

Card Details

Our Verdict

We’ve seen PRG go up to 65,000, but that was split up over two years. From memory 50,000 points after $1,000 in spend is the best sign up bonus we’ve seen apart from that two year offer (and that required paying a year of $195 annual fees). Probably worth grabbing if you can get the offer to show and have a use of Membership Rewards points, but not such a crazy deal to be disappointed if it doesn’t show up. As always if you have any questions regarding American Express credit cards I’d recommend you read this post first.

I’ve found to get the offers to show up quicker in incognito, try using a device that you’ve never used before on Amex site.

Incognito? Go in chrome then search for link? I did this by cleaning browser then searching but always get 25k to show up

Yes, but with a device you haven’t used to access Amex before. I used an old iPad I never use, got it first try.

Hey thank you for this! I just found another use for Edge. It now has two uses, download Chrome, and get the 50,000 /2k offer! Approved

This offer shows up for me. Unfortunately, I’ve already got this offer last year, so I won’t be eligible. Shame. Easiest 50K points I ever accumulated!

Did you get the 50k/$1000 offer? If so which link did you use? I can only get the $2000 offer

Beth

Meh… 25K for $2000 spend. I’m not feeling the AmEx love…

I got, under Amex Offers when signed in, 50k points for $2k spend with first year annual fee waived.

Tried both methods for my SO and I, no luck. What a shame. This is one of Amex MR cards that neither of us have had before.

One thing worth noting. When I tried going through AMEX to look at my offers, I was shown a few select offers after putting in my info. My SO though was required to login to see hers. As I said, neither of us got this offer and I don’t know if either situation is better than the other, but just thought I’d point out.

I received an offer by US mail about a week ago for 50k pts for $2k spend. No lifetime language that I could see. Offer good until June 28.

So it looks like Amex is still using snail mail for marketing. Rumor was that was going to end and everything was going to be e-mail. I wonder if codes are shareable.

Used incognito mode and got instant approval for both me and wife. Thank you DOC!

I got this offer to show up two weeks ago when I checked for Amex pre-approval on their site per the instructions I got from this site. I applied and have my card and did the 1k spend and now my points will show up next statement.

I’ve had this card TWICE and received the bonus both times. I was told repeatedly on Flyertalk and other sites at the time that there’s no way I would receive a second bonus. The second offer was received by snail mail and did NOT have the once in a lifetime language. I encourage all former cardholders of various AMEX cards who are interested to thoroughly read the details of every offer every time.

Thanks for the DP. I assume the first time you applied it was an online app?

Thanks Doc. I got the 50k MR points after 2k spend offer and got my wife, and both parents approved instantly through a Chrome incognito browser on my phone.

Kept using incognito in Chrome, no luck. Tried it with InPrivate with Edge via the expired personal Platinum link and *immediately* got an offer for 50k points/$2,000 spend, along with several other special offers (including 25k/$1,000 on Green!)

Tried this method for both my SO and I and no luck just as a counter point.

I’ve been trying both methods for longer than I’m willing to admit with no luck tonight. Has anyone tried calling and asking for this offer?

Peter

Is it possible?

No Luck.
Only require $2,000 in spend.
