Amex Platinum Offer, 150K Points Plus 10X Shop Small
American Express has been very generous recently when it comes to welcome bonuses, upgrades and referrals. Especially for its platinum cards we have see offers up to 190,000 for the business version and 150,000 for the personal card.
For the Amex Platinum Card however, there’s an even better offer that some people have received in the mail and it includes extra earning on Shop Small purchases. That’s an offer that is no longer available publicly, and a big opportunity for tons of extra points. Let’s look at the details.
- Earn 150,000 Membership Rewards points after you spend $6,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership.
- Plus earn 10x points on eligible purchases at restaurants worldwide and when you Shop Small in the U.S., on up to $25,000 in combined purchases during the first 6 months for card membership.
- $695 Annual Fee
Amex Platinum Earning Structure
The Amex Platinum card earns the following rates:
- 5X Membership Rewards on flights booked directly with the airline
- On up to $500K in spend per calendar year
- 5X Membership Rewards on prepaid hotels via Amex Travel
- 1X Membership Rewards on everything else
Amex Platinum Card Perks
The Amex Platinum card comes with over 40 unique perks, which you can check out here, but here are a few of my favorites:
- $200 Annual Uber Credit + Uber VIP Status: Our Guide to Amex Platinum Uber Credit
- $200 Annual Airline Fee Credit: See Complete Guide to Maximizing Your Travel Credits
- $200 Annual Hotel Credit: On prepaid bookings at Fine Hotels + Resorts® or The Hotel Collection properties made through American Express Travel
- $179 CLEAR Credit: Annual statement credit for a CLEAR membership
- Priority Pass Membership and Centurion Lounge Access
- More: $100 Saks Credits, Free Walmart+, $240 Entertainment Credits
This is a tremendous offer for those who are targeted. The 150,000 bonus is as good as it gets, and you can possibly find it through referral links. However, the added 10x on Shop Small and restaurant purchases is no longer available. If maximized, that would be a total of 400,000 Membership Rewards points.
Let us know if you have received this offer, or similar ones, from American Express.
