I had this show up and clicked through the link approx 2 weeks ago but the application process hung incomplete, life got in the way, and decided to come back to it. I haven't seen the pop-up since unfortunately.

try giving them a call. I didn’t receive any pop-ups, but called anyway and the offer was on my edge and explorer accounts. Applied on the spot for additional cards over phone.

yeah, bit strange why this promotion will take so long to credit points. Amex are usually a lot more swift with the majority of their other offers.

Maybe they are anticipating a large number of people cancelling and they hope people will wait around for the 5k points...

I only got this targetted email yesterday so added the max of 4 supp cardholders. I only skimmed the ts and cs as OS on phone but didn't see where it was limited to only one lot of 5k per card. Anybody have any insights on this?

Unfortunately, point #2 (my bolding)

More unfortunately, lost the ability on the next round of supp offers. Anyways, all good for ShopSmall bonuses or cash backs.

Drat. Thanks for the point out PDog.

I may give it a go just in case the points come through...it won't be like I'm losing any spend points earn.

I was wondering where my points were then just saw the post above with the T's and C's and didn't realise you had to spend $500 on the supp card - so I better get onto that Snappy Tom.

Excellent, one of ours has arrived.
Just waiting on the second lot (unfortunately that’s the card I want to cancel to start the 18 months on the bench again. But good planning / marketing on AMEX’s behalf, it’s kept me as a customer for longer)

Is this offer still available if applied for now and $500 spend met before 31st July? Logged in and cannot see it in my account, thinking of giving them a call on Monday.

I called when the offer was on my husband’s account but not mine to be told it was targeted so not available for me. A month-ish later I received the offer via email.

Despite that, I reckon it’s worth a call!
