There’s an incredible targeted upgrade offer that some American Express cardholders are seeing that’s not only offering 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards for upgrading to the Platinum card, but also the opportunity to earn 5x on up to $15,000 of groceries, gas and dining.
As you can see from the screenshot here are the terms of the offer:
- Earn 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards when upgrading to the Platinum card & spending $6,000 in the first 6 months of card membership
- Earn 5x points on up to $15,000 of combined purchases in the following categories during your first 6 months of card membership:
- U.S. Supermarkets
- U.S. gas stations
- Restaurants worldwide
If you were able to max out this offer by spending $15,000 in those three bonus categories, you’d earn a total of 175,000 points which represents a return of 11.67 Membership Rewards points per dollar.
Reader Igor saw this offer on his Green card when logging in to his American Express account, so be sure to check your cards in case you’ve been targeted for this specific offer or another great upgrade offer on any of your Amex cards.
If you do get targeted for this or any other upgrade offer from American Express, be sure to keep the card for at least 12 months after upgrading because Amex is very strict about clawing back bonus points if you cancel or downgrade your card any earlier than that.
Are any of you seeing this specific offer too or any other upgrade offer on your Amex cards?
