An even bigger bonus than the previous promotion! The American Express Platinum Card needs no introduction, but a quick run down of the main benefits:

- No preset spending limit and uncapped earning at a rate of 2.25 MR per dollar spent with a wide range of partner programs and redemption options
- Shop Small promotion offering a total of 5.25 MR points per dollar at eligible merchants (capped at 40k points, until 31 Mar 2022)
- Elite status with major hotel chains including Hilton, Marriott, Radisson and Accor
- $450 travel credit with Amex Travel
- Accor Plus membership including a free night certificate, and up to 50% off your bill at Accor restaurants, and 'red hot' deals (which does offer some excellent savings)
- Digital subscription to The Australian for primary and supplementary card holders
- Access to special deals/perks via Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts, The Hotel Collection, and International Airfare Program
- Access to over 1000 lounges globally, including Virgin Australia lounges, American Express lounges, Priority Pass, Plaza Premium, Delta Skyclub
- 2 x $75 annual credits to use with NET-A-PORTER / MR PORTER
- Up to 4 free supplementary cards for family or friends

The card has a hefty $1450 annual fee, but you could decide to use the 350,000 MR bonus to pay for $1750 worth of statement charges.

There's no set end date for the offer, Amex can change or withdraw it at any time.

I will earn 100,000 MR for any successful referrals. You cannot have held an American Express card in the prior 18 months to be eligible for this promotion.

What? A thread on 350,000 MR points for $3,000 spend. 🤣

Anyway, good for all those who can get it.

Super lax approval process - my income is well below the "$100k" listed.
No payslips submitted. I've changed jobs this year as well. No expenses entered. Just usual contact/personal ID info.

I have had a number of Amex cards (nearly all types 2xQF / 1xReserve / 1xPlCharge / 2xDJ's) in the past but not for past 19mths. Guessing they pulled this history. Noting also this'll be my ~27th card in past ~5yrs (all paid in full etc.) #churnandburnbaby!

This was my experience too when applying for the card 2 years ago. Never asked to verify income or anything at all.

Also I think you can cancel before the annual fee is paid. Because it doesn’t get charged until the end of the first statement period. So it you meet your spend quickly and use the bonuses then in theory you could cancel before it hits. This could reduce your chances of easy approval next time though.

FWIW I just called AMEX Plat and they will not make same offer available to me - what is available to me is 45K / 300K

Sucks that they wouldn't increase yours! Might be worth it to try again with a different rep.

Only certain accounts have these higher offers. Sudoer and I always seem to get the same ones. I think to trigger it you need to have already had a successful referral in the past 12 months.
