You can use the credit for seat upgrades on your selected airline. 😎

On another note, just checked my MR balance this morning, and I see the 100k MR points from my $3k spend sitting there... yay (got in on the 100k offer)
NFCU $60.4k/PenFed $22.5k/Commerce $15K/53 $11K/Synovus $14K/BBT $11K/CapOne $12K/DCU $7.5K/BMO $7.5K/Chase $14.5k/Cabelas $10K/ and many many more!
Total CL $398600, plus car and RV loan.
Ooh. Ooh. Getting closer to that $500K mark!

Very Nice!! Congrats as well..

 

Would have gotten the CSR if I wasn't Chase 5/24. But this Amex Platinum is definitely a good alternative.

Congrats btw... what offer did you get?

**bleep**! I feel I got ripped off with my bonus points.. I just called today and was told there is no such thing as 6 months spending for bonus points.

 

Public offer is 40K MR for $3K spending in 3 months.

 

How can you call mine special good deal if I have to spend $5K in 3 months for 50K MR.

 

Rep said.. Well you get more points, and I said well I have to spend more to get more points. **bleep**! How rude.. She even told me if I wanted the public offer to cancel my account and re-apply..

 

That's not very Amex rep like.. Hmmmnn..

Congrats on the approval. To be fair you should have read the fine print of offer details before you app'd. All water under the bridge now. Enjoy the card! I've been loving my PRG!

I read the fine print.. I kept insisting to the rep that I was looking at my deal, and he just told me he had a better deal for me.

 

Anyways.. I'm persistent and did not quit. Called again tonight and another rep saw that deal also and opened up a case for me and noted my intention for apping was because of that deal. (crossing my finger) hope they take that into consideration.

 

Still happy that I got approved for the Amex Platinum.. I'm more excited to use the perks.
