I did it, but why don't you do it yourself next time. It's not that complicated...

I hope this is the right thread to put this, search didn't bring up much on "Mercedes Benz".
I applied for that card yesterday, and the Topic Wiki here states that
Quote
Mercedes Benz Platinum   50k   1k/3 months
.
The link didn't work, it gave an error message
Quote
We apologize that the offer you are looking for may no longer be available.
Click here to learn more and apply for the current offer.
so I googled  "Mercedes Benz Platinum" and opened the card, but after opening it told me that I'll need to spend 3K in 3 months.
What went wrong here, and is there a way to get around it?

Thanks in advance.

The link does seem to be dead, as do many of the links I found on google. What link did you use?  I seem to remember hearing about a 3K/3 months spend.
3K isn't difficult - as long as you get the 50K points it's no big deal methinks.

It's no big deal, but when you did a 2BM together with the BGR that needs its own 5K it is.

The link I used was this:
https://www.mbfs.com/mbfsr/en/misc/creditCard.do
And selected the one on the right. Which takes you to this.

Make sure to apply for the "explorer" card, not the "club " card.

Is there a current link for the 50k MR MB Plat card? The link in the wiki seems bad. Thanks.
