Amex Platinum Upgrade Offer, Get 75,000 Points and 10X on Gas & Groceries

Some American Express cardholders are being targeted with an offer to upgrade to the Amex Platinum Card for a bonus of 75,000 Membership Rewards points. Besides the points bonus, the offer includes 10X earning for groceries and gas purchases. Let’s see the details.

Update 4/23/21: More people targeted HT DoC

This is a great upgrade offer that was sent out by mail to select Amex Gold cardholders. You can also check your accounts, as sometimes the same offers will pop up in there. There’s no hard pull when upgrading, and can receive the upgrade bonus even if you’ve had the card previously.

If targeted, you can earn 75,000 points plus 10x on groceries and gas purchases, which can yield another 150,000 Membership Rewards points, if maximized. Once you upgrade, make sure to start taking advantage of all the credits and perks the card offers.

  1. So what’s the consensus on whether store-specific gift cards (NOT visa/mastercard…etc. straight cash equivalents) will qualify for that 150,000 point grocery bonus or not be clawed back next year? I know none of these gift cards will count toward any SUB, but this extra grocery bonus could be considered a little different. Especially considering I’ve been doing several K’s worth of grocery gift cards monthly with my AMEX Gold card and have never had a problem being awarded the standard 4X bonus that card offers. On the other hand, they did claw back all those Hilton bonus points last year when they offered the same sort of bonus on grocery purchases for a short period of time. So maybe I just answered my own question.

  2. Probably want to check the terms to see if you still qualify for the bonus if you’ve previously had the card. That’s what my terms say, so it’s useless for me.
