Yes I am Platinum Amex.The T&Cs on the transfer page show that you only get 20% and the status bonus if you're a Centurion or Platinum card holder:
<strong>*Transfers are normally immediate, but please allow up to 1 business day for the transfer to be completed.</strong><br><br>www.americanexpress.com
So, a little more targeted than it first appears.
Yes , the terms and conditions state that if you are already SG , then you will be able to retain that status after the promotional period for one year if you transfer 400K points.nice! i have a platinum..tempted to transfer 400k.
i wonder if this will take care of 500 SC, so the following year i'll need 400SC only?
Only a 15% offer for me.

I used a similar offer May 2018; 750k for Platinum +40% bonus. I remember having to chase VFF up for the Platinum. Great timing for me; I was sweating on the February bonus round as I am handing back the platinum charge and reserve at the end of the month.IIRC there was a similar offer to this last year.
I used a similar offer May 2018; 750k for Platinum +40% bonus.
Can anyone help me get my head around this one?
I'm WP with Virgin with a review date of end November 2020.
Would transferring 800k MR points (I have Amex business platinum, so I'm eligible for the offer) give me another year of WP Virgin, so my next review date is November 2021?
Or would it nudge my review date to Feb 2021 (i.e. one year from now?)
