Just logged in (to my Westpac Qantas Amex) to find:

161929

Not the flashiest of promotions but I'll take it. Posting here as it may be eligible to other Amex-issued cards.

Also got this on Amex Explorer, pity it’s only worth 2500 flyer points.

Interesting. The application timed out, and now when I log on it does not appear. Will contact amex tomorrow if it doesn't come back.

Popped up again when logging in today so applied. Interestingly it came back with a "we will let you know the outcome of your application" rather than an immediate confirmation. I would have thought that there was little to confirm.

IIRC in past promotions there has not been spend requirements attached.

They have been doing this with the $500 spend requirement for many months.

Has anyone received the bonus points yet? Have just been advised 8-10 weeks after meeting the eligible spend criteria, but I'm hoping to close the card -.-

Good to see I’m not the only one. Would be nice to get it before the end of May to get the 15% transfer bonus to Velocity.

I met the spend about 3 weeks ago now and still nothing. It's rare for AMEX to not trigger automatically isn't it? That's been my experience in the past anyway.

Yeah, that's why I checked with them via online chat. Normally they're very quick to award bonuses.

I also am waiting on the 5000 points. Everything else AMEX related for me has been instant...
