referred a friend then realised that if I did with my Platinum Reserve Card than the Edge, then the points I would get would be 20,000 rather than 10,000. They got the 20,000 and my 10,000 came through even before they got the card.

Anyway happy to refer if anyone wants. Hopefully this time I get the 20k.

Did anyone manage to exceed the 50,000 point limit for referrals? got a feeling that they don't actually monitor this

if anyone doesnt already have an amex and needs a referral PM your email address and the type of card you wish to apply for so i can send you the referral so that you can obtain extra sign up points.

You mean rather so that you gain extra points. They would just get what they would get anyway.

Might also be interesting to refer Platinum for example then during the other person's application downgrade after acceptance but before they receive the card and get charged the higher annual fee. Most people happy to try this would probably already have an AMEX though...

no they will earn more sign up bonus points if referred.. ie Take the discovery card. if you apply directly you Earn up to 7,500 extra Qantas Frequent Flyer points[SUP]1[/SUP] if referred they get 8000k points. you can earn 5,000 extra Qantas Frequent Flyer points if your friend does not already hold an American Express Card, chooses to apply via the email they receive and their application is approved. note:
if your friend already has an American Express Card (excluding those issued by a bank), you and your friend will not be eligible for the extra Qantas Frequent Flyer points*.

Recently a friend who I referred a Platinum Edge card was advised that they would get 20,000 points based on my referral. Not sure whether it was because I referred them with AMEX Reserve card rather than AMEX Platinum Edge card. Anyway I'm also happy to refer if you PM me, and also tell me whether you are wanting to apply for Edge or Reserve.

Guys, need a referral for a Amex Platinum Edge. Send me a pm.

Have an existing Reserve, and wouldn't qualify for the current 10k sign up bonus I was told.

Hi Ecka,

Unfortunately I don't think this will make a difference as per below.

*When you recommend The Platinum Edge Credit Card to a friend, you may receive up to 10,000 Membership Rewards points if they choose to apply using the link provided and their Card is approved. Your friend will receive up to 15,000 Membership Rewards points when they spend $500 within the first two months of Cardmembership. If your friend has already applied for The Platinum Edge Credit Card without using this recommendation, you and your friend will not be eligible for the bonus Membership Rewards points. If your friend already has an American Express Card, you and your friend will not be eligible for the bonus Membership Rewards points as this offer is not valid for upgrading Cardmembers. Please allow 8 to 10 weeks for the Bonus Points to be awarded once approval is made. Offer expires 31 December 2013. Subject to the Terms and Conditions of the Membership Rewards Program.

I think that the card is still worth it regardless of the points however, you could maybe ring up and say that you are cancelling your reserve and say that this one may be more suitable and see if they give you the offer rather than lose a customer.

Thanks Paul, but I did ring up today asking about changing cards, and I asked them if I qualify for the 10,000 sign up bonus.

As expected, the lady said I wouldn't qualify for the new sign up bonus as an existing card holder, BUT if I got someone to refer me, she said we would both get the referral bonuses.

Will see what happens I guess.

Looks like Ecka is sorted.

If anyone else needs a referral I am happy to oblige, just pm me. ;)

did you all see that if the applicant already has any american express card that the bonus will not apply!!!!!!

My friend already got a bank issued amex card. Does this mean my friend is ineligible?

Hi - it looks as though more than 10,000 points is possible if I sign up for the Amex Platinum Edge if I am referred by someone else. Can someone please advise what this amount is likely to be ?

Thanks

Apparently it depends on the credit card of the referrer. You can get 15000 points if he's got the Platinum or Gold or 10000 points if his card Green Charge.
