Congrats! Which part of Asia are you headed to if you don't mind me asking?

Well my family is from the Philippines. So going there first, then the 2nd week we will be going to Macau and Hong Kong.

 

Also my flight layover is in Seoul, Korea.. So I'm definitely excited to use my Amex Plat perks there for lounge access.

 

HHonors and SPG Gold Status access for hotels in Macau and Hong Kong.

I'm still doing research on how to spend 3-5K in 3 months with this card.

 

Some say pay a friend using PayPal, some say buy Giftcard in $500 increments, or some say book a flight for future and once bonus receive cancel and refund.

Re: My First Ever Charge Card AMEX Platinum Approved

OP, congrats! You should be stoked! 

 

Side note, for others following the thread, consider checking Amex prequal via NerdWallet. My offer for PRG was 50K MR with just 1K spend in 3 months. Done!  But it also said the offer was 25% higher than recent offers, so it will tell you if you're getting a decent offer.  

 

Again, well done OP. 

High scores: EQ-689 (5/5/17), TU-707 (5/5/17), EX-692 (5/5/17) GOAL: replacing 6s with 7s

Forget the bonus! LOL, I am stoked.. Thank You..

 

Number one reason I wanted the card was for the Perks. Lounge Access, HHonors, SPG Gold Status, Hertz, Avis Gold Status, etc..
