is it a new way to get AMEX Platinum
« on: January 09, 2018, 04:14:56 PM »
Hi everybody,

Probably your already discussed this topic, however I can't find it.
I want to share that my better half and I received offers for The Platinum Card (AMEX).

1. I received in a "popup/banner" message when I logged into my amex account. Usually, I see something like "Refer friends. Get rewarded" but this time I got "You're pre-approved...". I followed the link and applied. Of course I did screenshots and downloaded T&C (no "Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product.").
Last week I got my 60K.

2. My better half received an email with "You're selected to apply ... ". T&C doesn't have "Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have or have had this product".
Lets see if this one works as well.

Both of us applied for a 100K offer in 2016 and closed it in 2017.

Probably will get a claw back, it's easy to get these preapproved offers.

Why? For a 100K offer I applied when it was official, no games. This offer I received online in my amex account.
I heard about people who received those offers in mail. This post is about 2 other ways.
Additionally, I know that many people use an old UI link, so they won't see this type of offer there.

Not necessarily, either way, keep us posted in a couple months.

Yet another way I got a pre-approved offer. Appeared in my "Offers" feed.
I canceled PRG ~6 months ago, so I guess this is a right time to get a new one .
