Amex Platinum Mercedes-Benz Now 60k, Keeps $475 Annual Fee for a Few Hours (Charles Schwab, Morgan Stanley 60k and $550)

Update: reader Miles reports the Mercedes-Benz annual fee is now up to $550. I hope some of you were able to get the card for 60,000 and $475.

Amex is punctual and operates on US Eastern time.

Earlier I wrote Should You Toss Up an Amex Platinum Ameriprise/Charles Schwab/Mercedes-Benz/Morgan Stanley Application Before Midnight? Much of the country has not reached midnight and already the results are in.

The following cards are now all 60,000 bonus points:

  • Charles Schwab Platinum, annual fee now $550
  • Mercedes-Benz Platinum, annual fee still $475 (if this fee stays down and 75k offer returns, this will be great!) (see update above, annual fee now $550)
  • Morgan Stanley Platinum, annual fee now $550 (reader Ted Fung points out this requires a brokerage account with Morgan Stanley which sounds less trivial than getting one with Charles Schwab)

The Ameriprise Platinum still waives first year annual fee and still has no sign-up bonus.

What is the max historical sign up bonus for the Schwab and Morgan Stanley cards?

Schwab was 40k from card launch till this change, now 60k. Morgan Stantely is an older card, I have not heard of more than 50k, but maybe they have had targeted offers.

glad I got on Mercedes right away (after missing out on Surpass upgrade by a few hours – link looks dead). Took screenshot of $475 fee. Thanks for being the 1st (that I saw) to post.
