There is an extremely lucrative targeted offer from American Express hitting the inboxes of American Express Business Platinum cardholders. With it you can earn up to 50,000 bonus Membership Rewards points!

Offer details

You can earn 40,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $5,000 on your American Express Business Platinum card between July 15 and October 15. Earn an additional 10,000 Membership Rewards points after spending another $5,000 on your card during the same timeframe.

This means you have 3 months to earn up to 50,000 bonus MR points. If you are targeted and only decide to shoot for the first $5,000 in spending, you’ll effectively be earning 9x MR points on your spending. The latter $5,000 will effectively earn you 3x, which is still better than the standard 2x offered by the new Amex Blue Business Plus.

If you’re targeted, you don’t even need to enroll. Just go out and start spending on your Business Platinum card. Note that the terms of the offer specifically indicate that qualifying purchases do not include loading of prepaid cards or the purchase of other cash equivalents. So treat this as a typical Membership Rewards-earning card sign-up bonus and complete the spend organically.

Not targeted?

Then you can sadly join the ranks of the PWaC contributors who aren’t either. How I wish I was targeted for this offer. It’s honestly one of the best spending offers I have seen in a very long time.

It’s encouraging to see American Express sending out offers for one of their Platinum cards. The card is a solid product for its perks, but is not a good one for general spending. Here’s hoping this offers will become more routine (and that I’ll be targeted)?

Are you targeted with this *amazingly* lucrative offer from American Express?
