It says on the page "fee waived........... If you're an ameriprise member"

I think it just assumes you are an ameriprise member when you use that link. I don't think it ever confirms that you are a member.

Yes, very odd point structure on this offer. The only advantage to this offer is the first year free. Get lounge access for a year then PC.

Re: AMEX Plat First Year Free

This offer has been available for at least the past 4 years.  It probably isn't going to disappear anytime soon, so I wouldn't app until reports come back from the few who already have.  It states that the offer for the Platinum card applies to Achiever Circle Elite members which requires $500,000 in  investments with Ameriprise.  I'm not sure how closely they check but I would be hesitant to apply thinking the annual fee would be waived until we get a few reports back.

Re: AMEX Plat First Year Free

I read a thread on a different forum. One person for their account closed after four months, but another person was fine.

Re: AMEX Plat First Year Free

Well Drapping paid off!  After four days of pending and a twenty minute call I was approved for the card.  I have NO Ameriprise account and the CSR stated that there is not a verification during application, she could not confirm during the account being open.  FYI If there is a minimum requirement for assets, ie $500,000, well haha to them.  I listed my assets as $10k-25k.  I am stoked, a year free of the Platinum card!!!!!  Oh yeah, 6 more years of backdating too.

Good luck!

Just hope you don't get closed down after a few months or something.
