Amex Platinum 100K Offer October 2018

Amex Platinum 100K Offer October 2018

It is being reported that a new batch of people are being targeted for the 100K offer.  If you were not targeted before you may be now!

From time to time CardMatch and American Express team up to provide targeted offers to certain people. Today we are hearing new reports of readers being offered 100,000 Membership Rewards points for signing up for the personal Amex Platinum card. Some of these readers were not targeted before so this could be a new round of people getting it.

Let’s take a look at the deal.

Analysis

Since you can only get the bonus on the regular Amex Platinum card once, it is always nice to wait for the best bonus possible. I always suggest people wait for a 100,000 bonus to maximize their opportunity. I personally applied for this card during a similar offer before and have no hesitation recommending the Amex Platinum 100K offer to those who are targeted. Check out our Complete Guide to Platinum Card Benefits.

100K points are worth over $1,500 for most people and you get lots of extra perks with this card. As a quick reminder it comes with Centurion and Priority Pass lounge access, $200 in Uber credits per year, various elite statues and a $200 airline fee credit each calendar year. (See below for more benefits) Do keep in mind this card does have a $550 annual fee which is not waived.

Use Caution

If you do get this card we strongly urge you to meet your minimum spend without purchasing any type of gift cards. Some people have had Platinum bonuses clawed back for purchasing gift cards.

Card Details

While the American Express Platinum card used to come with a $450 annual fee, it was upgraded last year with added benefits, a metal design and a $100 annual fee increase. The $200 annual Uber credit was perhaps the main addition. Now you can also get free additional Gold Cards, which help you to get even more awesome Amex Offers.

Here’s a list of what this card offers:

  • 5X MR points on airfare booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel
  • 5X MR points on eligible hotels booked on amextravel.com
  • 1X MR points on all other purchases
  • $200 in annual Uber savings
  • $200 airline fee credit
  • $100 in annual Saks Fifth Avenue credit
  • Fee credit for Global Entry or TSA Precheck: Receive one Global Entry ($100) statement credit or one TSA Precheck ($85) statement credit
  • Access to over 1,000+ airport lounges, including The Centurion lounge, Delta Sky Clubs, Airspace Lounges and Priority Pass Select membership
  • SPG Gold status (also give you Marriott Gold status)
  • Hilton Gold status
  • Unlimited Boingo internet access
  • No Foreign Transaction Fees

Conclusion

This is one of the best offers you’ll see on this card, aside from the rare 150K offers that we haven’t seen in a while. If you’re not able to get the 100K offer, you’re stuck with the public 60K bonus. For best point uses, here’s our Complete Guide to American Express Membership Rewards Points: Including Best Ways to Earn and Redeem Points.

    • That is the only option currently available outside of targeted offers. You can try using a clean browser to search sometimes that brings up 75K offers.

  1. Does anyone know why Amex would be making hard inquiries on my credit report monthly when I haven’t had an Amex card since 2010? It doesn’t seem to be affecting my score, but just wondering and I can’t find an answer to this anywhere. Tried calling Amex and keep getting transferred around, no one has an answer.

    • I am guessing it is a soft inquirie which everyone does but that should only be if you have an active card with them.

  2. I do not see a place on the left hand menu that says “ALL MATCHES” The only cards are Chase and BoA.
    I have 840 credit. I don’t want Chase as I am 5/24. Really looking for Personal Platinum AMEX with 100K

    • Same here… Not seeing a single AMEX card or offer coming up for me… With an 840 credit score and very low debt to income ratio… I should be able to see this offer or at lease other AMEX offers.

  3. Something is up. I NEVER see Amex cards.

    I am an “alumni” of the “stop sending me pre-screened offers. I think Amex got that notification and followed through. I have since asked to get pre-screened offers on one particular site, but still no Amex on this site! Kills me!

  4. AMEX is very weird in my experience with their offers. We make good money, have excellent credit scores… Nothing (incognito, different devices, different browsers.) We have a couple, friends of ours who we are trying to guide town the path of points and miles. Humble income, humble scores (wonderful folks, btw) and they literally get every offer, cannot apply because they have a hard time meeting the spending requirements for the bonus.

    • Same here… Interestingly, I had dinner with a friend on Saturday and he talked about getting denied for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, but getting approved for the AMEX Platinum. He got a 75,000 sign up bonus AND they waved the $550 yearly fee for being military.

      I picture Cartman from South Park sending out pre-screened offers and approving applications based on how many hot pockets he has had in the last hour…

  5. I just got targeted from this!

    For more context, I already have a cancelled SPG card and an active blue cash preferred card with Amex. I have been waiting for the 100k offer for two years and finally got it from Cardmatch.

  6. Any idea when it will expire? I finally got it (yippee! ) but really need to be poised for getting SW companion renewed…it expires in December!
    So I wanted to wait until I applied for those?

    • CLEO: I’m sorry I don’t have an answer to your question. May I ask, you said you finally got it. Do you recall, before you got it, if other Amex cards showed up on there? My experience has been Chase and Capital One cards only.

      • Hi Leigh. Idk why I finally was targeted. My credit score has always been high. I have never done much Amex …. I am not a “player” but have tried to be strategic for certain goals…..mainly UR….because I find the Amex structure tricky.
        I did get. Hilton card a year ago and downgraded to the no AF card when time came for it.
        I too have always gotten worthless freedom, etc, in the card match thingy. Honestly, I almost didn’t even check.

        • Hi Cleo, My question was not clear. On the Cardmatch website, do you recall if you’ve ever seen any Amex cards on there before? On the website, I haven’t been suggested ANY Amex cards ever. That seems strange to me. I’m trying to get more data points.

  7. I have has this card before but closed later and now I’m seeing I’m getting targeted. Will I still get the bonus if I apply again? Thanks.

  8. I have the same issue. When I open the email it goes to the 100K offer. Ive called multiple times to SPG and Amex and they still have not fixed it. Frustrated.

  9. I got the offer last year for the 100 points on AX platinum. I had questions so I called, and was erroneously given 25,000, not 100, and AX acknowledges I had the offer, but I “agreed” to the 25,000, and even though they stated this as factual, they will not honor the bonus miles. The only reason I did this was for my Charity, I take ladies with terminal diagnoses on “bucket list” trips/journeys. Worst service ever! Smug young guy read me the “rules”, all the while stating if I’d accepted the offer on line, and not called “dumb & dumber”, I would’ve been fine!
