Amex Platinum card 125K Offer with 10X on Gas/Groceries

It has been a wild ride of some great American Express welcome offers in the last few days. First we saw two Resy offers for the Platinum and Gold card which were some of the best offers in long time. But just two days later the 100K offer popped up for the Amex Platinum Card.

While many people were trying to pull up the 100K offer, a select few got an even better surprise, a 125K offer. That offer also included the 10X earning for gas and groceries, which makes it the best offer ever for the Amex Platinum Card. You can actually earn total of 275K Membership Rewards points when you complete the spending requirement and maximize the $15k spending within the first 6 months. Let’s see the details of this offer, and how you can look for it.

The Offer

  • Earn 125,000 Membership Rewards® points after you spend $5,000 on purchases on your new Card in your first 6 months of Card Membership.
  • Plus, earn 10x points on eligible purchases on your new Card at U.S. Gas Stations and U.S. Supermarkets, on up to $15,000 in combined purchases, during your first 6 months of Card Membership. That’s an additional 9 points on top of the 1 point you earn for these purchases.
  • $595 Annual Fee

How to Check

The 125K offer most likely will how up through Pre-Qualified Offers from American Express. They are tailored to your personally. To check if you have any improved welcome offers, just go to the American Express website, click on ‘Cards‘ at the top of the page and then click ‘Check for Pre-Qualified Credit Card Offers’.

Amex Platinum Card Perks

Let’s take a quick look at what the Amex Platinum offers in terms of yearly perks & credits:

I don’t think we need to analyze this offer much to figure out that it is a great opportunity for those who have been waiting for a big bonus. Even with the $595 fee you can come out way ahead with the 125K points and 10X on gas and groceries in addiiton to all the perks the card gets you.

The main issue is getting this offer, which is still pretty rare. But the 100K bonus that most people are able to get is still an amazing option. let us know if you get lucky with the 125 offer.

  1. This is for a business card. Annual fee for business is 595. And also it’s very rare. They cant help you if you call in. Get your facts right miles to memories!

    • You are wrong Kyle…this is for the personal card. Multiple people I know have signed up for the offer and there are numerous screen shots in Flyertalk and on Facebook. So we have our facts 100% right.

  2. How do you check this on Amex website. Tried both regular site and incognito and in incognito i fill out information but then it takes me to log on to my account where i only see upgrade offers i am guessing from my gold card. Am i doing something wrong.

  3. I was lucky enough to get the 125K offer and jumped on it. Now I have my first Amex card and I’m off to learn all of the benefits. Whoop whoop!!!

  4. For someone that has other VIP cards like the chase Reserve an a 800 credit score do you think there’s a chance if I call them they’ll give me the offer I haven’t been targeted?
