New Amex Business Platinum Upgrade Offer – 140K Membership Rewards

There is a newer targeted upgrade offer for 140K points, that is pretty insane.  The spending is the same as the 85K upgrade offer, $10,000 within 3 months.

Update 6/20/22: More people have received emails targeting them for this offer

Update 11/25/21: I received an email for the new 140K offer on both of my Amex Business Gold accounts this week.

Doug at the Travel Rewards Warrior Facebook Group sent me the details on an awesome offer he saw in his American Express account this morning.  It was an upgrade offer on his Business Gold card to the Business Platinum card. He found it in his Amex Offers section. Let’s take a look at the details of the offer.

  • Upgrade to the Business Platinum card and earn 140,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $10,000 within the first 3 months.

Who Shouldn’t Take The Offer

If you have never had the Business Platinum card then taking this upgrade offer will trigger the once per lifetime language on the Business Platinum card.  So you would technically not be eligible for a future welcome offer on the card (the enforcement doesn’t always match the terms here).  So that is something to consider.  Some people will still want to take it since the spend is $5,000 lower than the normal welcome offer.  Just something to be aware of when making your decision on the offer.

Final Thoughts

This is a pretty great offer if you can meet the spend requirements.  I would be a lot more tempted to jump on this at $10,000 versus the normal $15,000 required.  Unfortunately I have only had my Business Gold a few months and was not eligible.

Check your Amex Offers section for the offer, it should be right at the top.  I heard from a few others that they had it as well so it may be somewhat loosely targeted.  Thanks again to Doug for sharing.

  1. I already have a Busines Plat and yet I got this email for the card. I still want to keep the Business GOLD since I get 4X on shipping and advertising on that. I need to call them to find out if I can get this offer or not (as I have business plat) and if I can still keep my gold card.

  2. It’s very frustrating when customer service people don’t know what is being offered to the public. I’ll call again tonight. Do I need to add this to my card on Amex offers? Or, are there automatically added to my points?

  3. I was told as a new cardholder for the Bus Platinum that I’m not eligible for the bonus categories. They said I needed to have the card by Nov 20 2020.
