The Amex Mercedes-Benz Plat has been discontinued. All former MP Plat card have been converted into regular Amex Platinums.

The Amex Mercedes-Benz Plat has all the same benefits as the Amex Plat.

Differences:
Annual fee is $495 $475 instead of $450
$100 Worthless gift certificate for in dealership overpriced tchotchkas from Mercedes-Benz
Link (You cannot use the Certificate online)
(Edit from ae123: Overpriced yes, but not worthless....watches, travel mugs, ice bags, caps, etc.)
You can get a $200 reimbursement for some airline spends, once every calender year.
Global Entry $100 Fee Credit - Global Entry is the US government’s expedited immigration program for frequent travelers. It costs $100 and is good for 5 years.

Not a bad deal if you can make your entire Mercedes purchase with the CC.

I would imagine that anyone who can afford to pay for a MB with a cc isn't as interested in the points as other may be  :P

True.

oops

"This offer is not valid for existing American Express Platinum Cardmembers"

I guess if you want to cancel your exsiting card and do the 3BM though they might not honor it.

But $100 credit for Mercedes products, which I'm sure can sell on ebay for more than the $25 difference.

Do you think the 3BM would work for someone applying for the 100k and this?

Who says the 100k match works for this?
Seems like a different card product with a different fee.  I wouldn't assume the 100k codes would work.

My bad. I meant applying for the reg. plat to get 100k and also this for the 50k. But I doubt they'd honor it, because the Mercedes offer isn't for plat cardhoders, and when you call to bump they'll figure that out. Or maybe not...

Why not go for other 75K cards?

The PRG doesn't contradict. And you only get softvpull when Amex pulls your report since you already have an account there
