Late last week, a 150,000 point offer for the American Express Business Platinum card was published on a number of blogs, including Frequent Miler’s Quick Deals.  This was intended to be a targeted offer, but it worked for pretty much anyone who called and used the published offer code. The offer was slated to end on May 15th but, probably due to the media exposure, it was killed a day early. Pondering the 150K offer…
