Re: AMEX AMEX AAAAAAA M E X! PC PRG to PLAT offer!

So I have been seeing the upgrade link on my account for months but have ignored it...well Amex just sent me an invitation via email to upgrade my PRG to the PLAT LOL. I will gladly accept if they would give me some bonus points Smiley Happy

Yep, I had that offer to upgrade my PRG to the Platinum for a long time too, and as much as I wanted a Plat with the amount of travel I do (weekly) I waited until that last 100k bonus came along and jumped then.

Yep it's been there for a while but the email states the "offer" expires some time in July. That is just fine with me, I will let it expire and wait for the next 100K offer.

I always have the upgrade link.


I actually tried incognito and the current offer is 40K Smiley Frustrated

I had the upgrade offer, used chat to see if there were any bonus points offers and of course there were not. 

 

I did the math, read this "10 Things to Do When You Get Amex Platinum" article on TPG, and decided to just "cold" app for it with the 40k bonus. Instant approval, card delivered first thing Monday morning, and I'll start working down the benefits. I'm already SPG gold organically, and Hilton gold through Founderscard, but the car rental promos and lounge access (and $200 airline credit) will make it worth the annual fee at least for the next 2-3 years.

Climbing to 700 and beyond. It's too cold for gardening.

More helpful data for me to use. I'm finally apping them next month but have no clue what card.
