Re: Approved for Amex Platinum Card !!!!

If you can meet the MSR on both Platinum and Aspire I say go for it now.  As far as criteria, i'm not sure.  You can log into your amex account and click the link for "Credit Card Offers".  It will say if you're pre approved or not.

Forgot to add, if you reply and are denied right now, it's only a sp.

Oh i get it.  Wait after 30 days and check again.  Don't forget you can get airline credits with the aspire too.  I picked up mine in December so I bought Delta gc's dec and again this week.

Make sure to use that Uber / Uber Eats credit. Use it or lose it. While it has happened, do not expect the credit to roll over if unused.

Re: Approved for Amex Platinum Card !!!!

It’s a keeper card for sure. I would check every other week just i see if you’re pre approved. 30 days should be good though. Put lots of spend on the platinum card and pay before statement post

Re: Approved for Amex Platinum Card !!!!

Congratulations! In addition to the MR points and other great travel benefits, don't forget:

 

  • To link your Platinum card to your Uber account. You get $15 per month off on Uber rides.
  • To specify an airline for the $200 annual airline fee credits.
  • To check the AMEX Offers on your card frequently. You can save $$hundreds by redeeming AMEX Offers.

 

On the latter point, for example, I just booked an Omni Hotel stay using my Platinum card and got $50 back because I spent more than $250 on the room. That's a whopping 20% off my hotel bill! Just one example but you do have to add AMEX Offers manually to your cards. So don't forget to check them often!
