Look Out For New Amex Platinum Upgrade Offers, 100k MR + $150 Credit
Check your American Express accounts for upgrade offers to the Amex Platinum Card. My wife had an interesting offer in her account today. This offer included both points and a statement credit. Here are the details.
Receive a $150 statement credit on the account, also
As with other upgrade offers, there shouldn’t be a credit check, since you are not applying for a new card.
My wife applied for this and was instantly approved. The confirmation screen said she can keep using her Gold Card until the new card comes in about a week. It’s common to see upgrade offers with points, but the addition of a statement credit sweetened the deal for us. It’s also nice that the offer allows 6 months for meeting the minimum spending requirement, rather than the standard 3 months we see on most cards.
