From time to time CardMatch™ has some fantastic card offers and sign-up bonuses. One very popular offer that pops up on occasion for some lucky folks is an American Express Platinum offer that awards 100,000 sign-up bonus points after hitting the minimum spending requirements. This is much higher than the 60,000 point offer available via the standard bonus, and certainly something that catches my attention.
Today (December 1, 2017) is apparently a lucky day for some as I saw reports at The Points Guy that the 100,000 point Platinum offer was popping up at CardMatch again, so I tested that theory using some different family members and low and behold, the offer was indeed there for some of them who had never had the card before.
This particular offer awards 100,000 Membership Reward points after using the card to make $5,000 in purchases in the first three months.
The Amex Platinum card also provides $200 in annual Uber credits, a $200 annual airline fee credit, access to airport lounges such as the Amex Centurion Lounge network, and really so much more.
It does come with a $550 annual fee, but that is easily worth it to me in the first year when you are getting 100,000 sign-up bonus points that you can use at a fixed value towards travel or transfer to a number of partners including Delta, Singapore, British Airways, ANA, and many more, sometimes with a transfer bonus. In fact, several of those programs contain many of my favorite award chart sweet spots.
The only way to find out if you are targeted for this 100,000 point Platinum offer is to log-in to CardMatch™ and check to see if you are targeted. If you are targeted, I would not personally think about it for too long, as there is no guarantee that the offer will hang around.
Were you provided the 100,000 point Amex Platinum offer via CardMatch?
