Amex Business Platinum, Best Ever 150K Bonus Possible
American Express keep upping the welcome bonus for the Business Platinum card. We were first seeing 100K offers, then 110K, then 130K and now a whopping 150,000 Membership Rewards points. The spending requirement is the same for all offers, but not everyone will be able to pull up this largest ever offer. Let’s see the details of the offer, and how to check if you are targeted.
UPDATE 8/20/22: A huge round of these went out via email, mail and in the Amex Offers section of people’s accounts this well. You may wanna check and see if you can get the 250K offer by calling in first or check out this 170K offer before grabbing it though.

I was targeted for the 150k + 10k offer via mail. It was the third Biz Plat card I’ve received since the pandemic began despite previously having the card years ago. Thank you, Amex!
Your referral link is expired
Does anyone targeted see any lifetime language on this offer? I already have the biz plat (targeted 150k MR SUB, $15k spend, signed up in Aug 2021), and then just today my Biz Gold acct was targeted for a biz plat 150k MR/$15k spend SUB + 10K MR (AU, $1k spend). I don’t believe I see any lifetime language but was curious what other ppl are seeing. Does anyone know of any DPs around successfully getting the biz plat 150K SUB two times? TIA!
Got the Platinum Business card just over 5 years ago. Received targeted offer for 150k MR with 15k spend with NLL a few months back. Applied for it and received the bonus. Just yesterday, got another email for the 150k + 10k AU bonus with NLL. Is there any datapoint of getting the signup bonus in these cases? I’ll be able to meet the MSR organically, so very much tempted.
Link appears to have expired. Said to have “friend” resend the link.
I got the offer for upgrading a previously held plat business card that ultimately down gradded to the blue business. Kept getting errors when I tried to apply. Ended up calling amex. They were not able to fix the problem and had no offers for me. Literally, after I hung up, tried the link again, Bingo worked. Got no pop up, hopefully good to go.
Here’s my recon:
1) Attempt 1, workstation where I interact with my AmEx account most often, private Edge session: 100,000 MR off your link.
2) Virtual machine used previously but never with AmEx, private Edge session, 120,000 MR off your link.
3) Different virtual machine, clean installation of Chrome (not using incognito), 100,000 off your link.
4) Snail mail arrived during this process offering me 90,000 MR for $10,000 spend on Business Gold, annual fee not waived.
Since I’m happy with the personal Gold and have multiple business charge cards, I haven’t decided but I am grateful for your blog either way.
My latest update is that the mailer for 150,000 MR + 15,000 in 3 months arrived by snail mail yesterday. I may try the telephone option but need to wait until the end of the offer (July 31 in my case) before attempting a different gambit because I mostly qualify for the bonus through airfare and income tax payments. I should be in a position to buy another transatlantic business fare by the end of October (with $6,000 to the IRS weeks before).
Oh, right, and I already exercised that option in late December (before the annual fee spiked). I had the Business Platinum about 15 years and liked it and was really surprised to receive another offer with my current Business Platinum in active use.
I plan to keep the current one past renewal because I adjusted my spending patterns enough to justify the $700 fee. I’ll think about keeping the second Business Platinum Card pass the first year because of the ability to apply airline reimbursement to a second carrier and my routine need for Dell purchases. Computers and accessories ain’t cheap.
I keep seeing the 150k offer on my BBP+ when I log in, but $15k in 3 months will take way too much effort and focus for me, and it wouldn’t be organic spend. Strangely, Amex gave me the pop up twice when I tried to apply for the personal Platinum 100k/$5k/6mo offer.
Mine (and P2’s) 150k offers disappeared from our amex offers (biz green card) after about a week. So don’t expect it to be around indefinitely… we were hoping until 12/31/21 which was the stated offer expiration date.
I have gotten so many offers it makes me suspicious. They all have no lifetime language. Just signed up for 150K offer for Plat on my blue biz card. Boom. Got another offer for another plat biz 100K $15K spend. Same thing happened on my gold card.
Bottom line is I’ve had a number of platinum and gold personal and biz cards especially in the last year. All with no lifetime language. Not sure if this is a glitch or the RAT team will be clawing back
I was targeted for the 150,000 points for the platinum business card. The requirement being $15k in the first 3 months of account opening. I have a huge project coming up and an upcoming trip, family of four so this offer comes in handy. We’ll see how it goes this first year.
Just to be different; I saw 140K in incognito.
[…] Update 5/15/20: We’re now seeing an offer for 150K points for some people! That’s the best offer I’ve ever seen on the Business Platinum card and matches the offer I got when I first opened the card years ago. The spending requirement is still $15K, but if this card is on your radar it’s worth reading the original post below and seeing if you’re targeted. H/T: Miles to Memories […]
I wonder if Amex and Chase are concerned that with the many devaluations they will have to keep upping the offers or if they like that because it will be more practical to just get MR and UR earning cards instead of co-branded. I’ve felt for a while that unless you frequently stay at a certain hotel chain or fly a certain airline the co-branded cards are pretty useless and the signup offers get you very little. IHG will have to start doing 500K sign up offers just to get a free night at a roadside motel in Nebraska.
Has anyone done an analysis of the number of planes (seats) that were retired over the past 12 months? The demand for travel will probably be back to 100% in 6-12 months, but rebuilding capacity will take longer. How many seats were available 2/1/20 and how many are in service or can be quickly put back in service now? The airlines are not incentivized to add seats quickly because they can jack up $ and point prices with limited supply. They will also be cautious increasing capacity for some time in case of another COVID like event.
I think they are not getting as many folks jumping at this as they thought and this is why they keep raising the bonus.
I know if they gave me SIX months to make the spend I could do it but since with AMEX I am super leery of any kind of hint of MS to get the bonus, 15k is too rich for me in my situation.
I wonder if they will ever go back to that 6 month thing they had for a short while during the early pandemic?
