Yes, There Is Still a 50,000 Point Bonus Available for Amex Platinum

You may have read that American Express has dropped their Platinum signup bonus to 25,000 points. That’s true if you’re only looking at affiliate links. If you’d like to get 50,000 Membership Rewards points for signing up for the Platinum card, use this link That’s non-affiliate, I get no referral bounty other than the incredible satisfaction I get knowing that you’re getting 25,000 extra points. You can’t really put a price on that can you? :)

As always with Amex, I suggest taking screenshots and keeping for your records.

  1. Thanks for sharing this — the last 50k link I had (which I also got from you!) came up dead. So appreciate the new one!

    • i applied through the last 50k link you posted. when i received the card and spent 1k, amex said “too bad you werent targeted”. i got the standard 25k.

  2. I’ve seen that a few others have this option as well but when I sign into my amex account, I can refer others for a 50k bonus on $3k spend in 3 months. In full disclosure, it also yields me 10k points but this may protect from ‘not being targeted’ as amex has gotten much tougher about that.

    Feel free to e-mail me if interested and I’ll send you a referral ASAP.
