100,000 Point Bonus Offer Back for Amex Platinum Through the ‘CardMatch Tool’

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).

While the Platinum Card by American Express has a standard offer currently of 60,000 points after $5,000 in purchases within 3 months, some people can do even better than that — 100,000 points through the CreditCards.com CardMatch tool.

Flagged by JT Genter, “Another Round of Amex Platinum 100k, Gold Card 50k Bonus Offers Available via CardMatch.” So you should check if the offer is available to you now.

Go to the CardMatch tool to see if the offer is available to you. You enter your name, address, and social security number and they’ll match you against the profile they’re looking for.

While you provide your social security number, the site is explicit in assuring “A soft credit check will be performed but it will not affect your credit score.”

Some people receive an offer through the CardMatch site for a 100,000 point initial bonus for the Platinum Card by American Express. Many people will not receive this offer.

Screen Shot When I Retrieved This Offer, November 7, 2017

Look for a ‘CardMatch Special Offers’ tab, Amex cards may not be what display but default but look for special offers on the left hand side of the screen. If you aren’t targeted, you won’t see it.

Definitely worth checking to see if you’re eligible. This is a fabulous offer for a fantastic card.
Lounge access is American Express’ own Centurion lounges, Delta lounges when flying Delta same day, Airspace lounges and Priority Pass lounges.

And you get elite status with Marriott, Hilton, National Car Rental, and Uber.

It’s also a pretty hefty metal.

  1. LOL, thx for posting AMEX irony…they keep throwing big signup bonuses at people yet they also continue to inflict pain on the cardholder in either lost/poor benefits and higher annual fees. Smoke and mirrors. Meanwhile they didn’t even try to keep my business when I closed my Plat card 2 weeks ago.

  2. I bet AmEx is targeting 1 out of every 1000 possible customers for this offer. Still can’t seem to get an offer, or even an offer to upgrade from my AmEx Gold Card to Platinum. rolls eyes.

  3. So no mention of the $550 fee plus the serious decrease in benefits to warn people? Maybe more important then that the card is “hefty metal” 😉
