I logged in to AMEX site to look at my wife's AMEX account to see when her introductory 0% expires.  She had a message that she was pre-approved and to apply for the Gold Card.  I never seen that on my account, and was envious.  I actually prefer the Platinum card as it is the ultimate card for me, mostly status and in my mind, "the official card to declare I'm back."   I used to look on a weekly basis and never saw the Pre-Approved invite to apply.  So I stopped looking 4 months ago.   Anyway, I quickly log into my account and of course, no message for me.  I decide to take a look.  Didnt believ I would  Today....however, was a different day.  I see the Pre-approval and click the apply button.  Funny how 30 secs can feel like 3 minutes......

 

APPROVED! American Express Card Art

Welcome to Platinum Card® Membership! We're excited that you have chosen American Express again.

 

I pumped my fists and celebrated like I hit a game winning basket.  I called my wife and she was unenthused like "really, so you got another credit card. I hope you didn't apply and get me one."  Just killed my happy moment so I am reaching out to my forum family. 

 


 

Wow !  That's a great story. I just got an approval on a Platinum card today too. I don't really need it, but I think for many of us, it's a precieved status symbol for us. I am happy with my Gold Card, but I really wanted the Platinum. It was a goal for me too. I do not care about the $550 AF. I think the benefits/rewards over the term of a year will squash that out and then-some. Again I didn't need the card, but I wanted the indulgance none the less... LOL  Plus I am taking a trip to London, and a really wanted to bring this card with me, so I look forward to seeing it in my mailbox tomorrow.
Congrats to you, and Enjoy your card bro. Don't let the wife kill your joy...lolkk
