Huge Amex Platinum Offer, 150K Points Bonus Through Referrals
American Express has been very generous over the last year when it comes to welcome bonuses. We have seen amounts that were previously unheard of, such as 190,000 points.
Now there’s yet another huge welcome offer for the personal Amex Platinum Card for 150,000 points. This offer is showing up through referral links, when using a clean browser window. That’s an additional bonus on it’s own as some people can also get a 30,000 or even 45,000 points referral bonus. Let’s look at the details.
Update 9/8/22: The offer is showing back in some accounts (HT Spencer Howard)
- 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.
- $695 Annual Fee

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

This is a tremendous offer if it shows up for you. Currently the public offer is for 100,000 points only, so you would get an additional 50,000 points through this referral offer.
We often see increased referral bonuses as well, so this could go up to 195,000 points if you have a 45K referral. And remember that you can now choose the two new fancy designs.
