(Via FT and Travel Summary – in fact, go to the Travel Summary link and click through his site so he can get the affiliate credit for this:

Here’s the short version:

Many people (myself included) are able to apply for an American Express Platinum card and get an offer for 100,000 Points after spending $3,000 ($450 annual fee not waived) or the Premier Rewards Gold and get 50,000 points after $1,000 spend in 3 months (First year fee waived, $175 thereafter). Here’s how: (there’s actually now a direct link at the bottom of the post)

Go to

Click on “Offers Matched for You” in the left navigation

Fill in your personal information (it’s a soft pull, don’t worry)

Then you’ll see a list of offers for you:

There ya go…

UPDATE: Or I just saw that One Mile at a Time posted a direct link here.

This offer is only good if you haven’t had a Platinum card for a year, or a Gold/Green/Zync for 90 days. Also, I had trouble get the link to Amex to work because I had been signed in on Amex already — clear your cookies or use incognito mode.
