Really? I've been sitting on my Amex green waiting until it hits the 13th month to upgrade. Amex did offer me an upgrade to either the PRG, Gold or Platinum but I thought I still had to wait.

if they are offering you then you don't have to wait... click it!

and otherwise yes, those that get scared that green is easier to get then gold and gold easier then platinum... I have seen people go back to back and apply for green and get approved and go back and apply for gold and get approved and finally go for what they really wanted from the beginning and apply for platinum and get approved!

Just to clarify, OP are they listing it as an upgrade or pre-approval?if upgrade and it's been less than 13 mos the request will not go through.

Lexie is right, you cannot upgrade from Green to any higher charge card without having owned it for 13 months.

You will be eligible for the Platinum sign up bonus or the prg sign up bonus provided that you've never had the plat or prg before.

You don't become disqualified from plat or prg sign up bonuses because you've had zync/green/gold

 

OPs best bet is to apply for the platinum if they are willing to bite the AF.
