Amex Platinum Charge Card - 300,000 points on 3k spend

May 31, 2021
Just received a new referral offer for the Amex Platinum card, offering 300,000 Amex Membership Rewards points to anyone who signs up using my personal link. This deal is 300k in the first year after $3000 spend.

A quick run down of the major benefits of this card:

- No preset spending limit and uncapped earning at a rate of 2.25 MR points per dollar spent
- 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)
- 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 annual fee is expensive at $1450 but you could decide to use the 300,000 MR bonus to pay for $1500 worth of statement charges, effectively reducing the card to no annual fee while giving you 12 months of the above benefits. You could alternatively choose to use the 300,000 points with an industry leading range of airline and hotel transfer partners to get far more than $1500 value.

It's a pretty sweet deal as their website only offers 200,000 points. Wish this was around when I first signed up to the card!

To qualify, you must sign up through the link below, apply for the card, be approved, and spend $3000 in the first 3 months of card membership. You must also not have held any other American Express card in the past 18 months

Please note that I will also earn 100,000 MR for successful referrals.
