, 75k for spending $500 for cards opened by 07/31.

-------------------------------------------------
I saw a thread on ft saying that people were successful getting the 75k bonus if they had previously applied recently with  lower bonus. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/milesbuzz/1204440-targeted-no-fee-1st-yr-american-express-gold-card-75-000-bonus-reward-points-signup.html
I figured i would give it a try. I called a few times with no success i then sent this secure message

Dear xxxx,

I understand your concern and will be happy to assist you with this matter.

After reviewing your account, I verified that you do qualify for the better offer in question. However, before I can issue the additional 50,000 bonus points to your account you will need to meet the spend requirement.

Please contact me again by email after you have met $500.00 in spending within the first three months of Cardmembership and I gladly adjust your account.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and handled your inquiry to your satisfaction. As a valued customer since 2010, we thank you for your continued loyalty and look forward to serving you in the future.
Sincerely, Cindy Travers Email Servicing Team American Express Interactive Services


in other words an extra 50k points for very little work.

Wow! That's amazing! I too just got the Gold Card when I did the Platinum Card... My 75K MR points posted but it would be great if I can walk away with 125K. Which category secure message did you do?

Hi, I applied for the Premiere Rewards Gold card in March with a 25K MR points signup bonus after spending $1000, which I met, and the points posted. But I'm a little disappointed because now there's an offer for 75K MR points (offer 5894). I feel like I missed out by applying early to the card... I wanted to know if there is a way that I can receive these additional 50K MR points. Thanks in advance.

I hope it works  ;)

If people are interested you can apply for the Premier Rewards Gold for the DD raffle here:
http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/13846

It's only advertised as 15K, but seemingly if they're willing to match the 75K offer it shouldn't make a difference which offer you apply with...plus you'll have an amazing shot at an iPad 2 or 32GB iPod Touch.

Added bonus: The first forum member to apply for the premier rewards gold card through the promo link, get approved, get an answer from AMEX about the 75K offer, and posts about it here will get 2 CO Presidents Club/UA Red Carpet Club passes that have no expiration date.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

you do run the risk of being rejected by amex as ineligible for the 75k promo, as many people on ft have reported happening to them, in which case you're stuck with 15k.    (though maybe you could at least get them to match you back to 25k, i guess ymmv).

The 25K is a public offer, so you can always match to that offer.
The 75K is targeted, but seemingly if you try a few reps you shouldn't have a problem getting the offer as long as you provide the bonus ID.
