AMEX Plat First Year Free

I noticed that if you go through Ameriprise, you can get a Plat with the first year free.

Re: AMEX Plat First Year Free

You have to be an Ameriprise customer to get the first annual year fee waived?

 

 

Also is this card hard to get like the Black Card?

Re: AMEX Plat First Year Free

There are plenty of other offers that have requirements like that which are not enforced.

 

Example - Barclays US AIrways MC has a special offer with higher bonus miles that's supposed to be open to US Air's Chairman members only.  But, no one checks status.

 

This offer could be the same.  I may guinea pig it later this month.  Although, I do have Ameriprise insurance.  I wonder if that counts as membership.
