Amex Platinum 100k Offer – Yes, Everyone Else Has Posted But This is One of Those to Jump on If You’re Ready

The American Express Platinum personal card has 100k offer for $3,000 minimum spend with a direct working link here (it was first posted on Reddit and subsequently reposted on many outlets. I have still never used Reddit, I just feed off others who do.) Disclaimer: I am not compensated by Amex for use of this or any other Amex link on this blog.

Amex Platinum 100kNo telling how long it will last. Must not have had the regular Platinum personal card before.

Amex Platinum 100k offers periodically appear so that they should be like airfare mistake fares that you mentally prepare your plan in advance for when they appear.

My wife has been wanting a Platinum card for Amex Centurion Lounge access so we had pre-decided to jump on any 100k offer. This is important because otherwise I can only raise such items at our biweekly Practical Discussion. The resit of the time she does not her mind clouded with such mental drags.

Our app, and others I have seen reported, is giving an error after the authorized user step, “Currently, our systems are not responding. Please try again later or contact us to apply by phone.
Call Us: 1-800-223-2670. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to serving you.” That should not disrupt processing and you should see a confirmation email immediately after. Update: on the add authorized user screen click ‘Continue’ rather than ‘Skip this Step’ to avoid this error.

Did you close your club carlson cards or only the flexperks to make way for more cards?

Thanks! Yours is the only blog I read so this is much appreciated. I gave up on all the other blogs that post the same crap every day. I would appreciate if you also posted other offers like this (olympics flexperk….)

I currently hold the Amex Platinum Ameriprise card. Are you aware of any issues of holding a Platinum card while applying for another? Thanks!


Quick tip. Check app status online and you will see you are approved. Regardless if you get error or says pending. Will show live status, usually approval.
