Just a heads up for the award travelers out there, the amex platinum 100k public offer is back.
How to get it:
1. Open a private browsing window (Incognito for google chrome, Private browsing window in safari, IE, and firefox)
2a. If you see a 40k offer, close the window and repeat, took me around 8 times to get it to pop up
3. Apply and Profit =]
Hope this helps some of you out!
It took me about 2 minutes of staring at it to just apply. I'm a little upset by one thing, that being I bought plane tickets and had I waited 3 days I could've done the AA giftcards and then bought the tickets, but oh well, I'm sure I'll find a use for $400 in AA gift cards.
Spending 3k in 3 months isn't that hard, just find people who will let you pay their bills for them and give you $ in return.
I think I used all of my luck for 2015 yesterday. After countless attempts in a private browsing window, the 40k offer was replaced by the 100k offer. I am quit sure that I stared at the page for at least 10 minutes not able to believe my eyes or maybe I was on the verge of passing out due to disbelief. Normally, I seem to miss out on these offers. I just happened to come across the "One Mile At A Time" article in my email yesterday evening and happened to get lucky.
Jsucool76, like you, I recently booked a couple of flights for the fall. To the best of my knowledge, most airline gift cards do not carry expiration dates. I sure I will find a use for the $400 in airline gift cards.
jasper100 Call AMEX and tell them you want to apply from your promotion code of BUIB : 0001 and they will give you the 100K offer. Just did it a few hours ago.
I used a code close to that code earlier today from seeing it on a blog, and it worked. Got it approved a few hours ago. Just told them I had a promotion Id of BUIU : 0001 and it worked. the numbers from Jsucool76 are close and I don't know if they work, but my code worked. Good luck.
Jsucool76 Did you call in an use the Promo Code I mentioned above? It has been working so far.
