Some Amex Green Card holders are being targeted with an offer to upgrade to the Amex Platinum card and also receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points. You can find this Amex Platinum Card upgrade offer either in your account, or could have been sent by email.
To be eligible to earn the 60,000 Membership Rewards points, you must be enrolled in the Membership Rewards program at the time of purchase. 60,000 Membership Rewards points will be credited to your account after you charge a total of $3,000 (the “Threshold Amount”) or more of purchases on your Platinum Card® from American Express within the first 3 months of Platinum Card® Membership. Qualifying purchases can be made by the Basic Card Member and any Additional Card Members on a single Card account.
When you upgrade, your card anniversary date doesn’t change. You will be charged a prorated annual membership fee for your new Card based on the time remaining until your next account anniversary date.
This Amex Platinum Card upgrade offer is a great opportunity if you are targeted. There’s no hard pull when upgrading. You can receive the upgrade bonus even if you’ve had the card previously. You could also possibly still be eligible for future offers on the card, even after the upgrade (assuming you never had the card before).
Let me know if you’re targeted or if you see any different offers.
