  1. In my experience it is a waste of time to call in if you are not targeted for this deal. I tried this and I was told by the CSR that unless you have a code they will not give you the deal. She also said that AMEX is aware of the fact that bloggers are spreading around this link(I did not tell her that is where I saw the deal she just volunteered that information). If you are lucky maybe you will get a clueless rep but otherwise it seems like you are probably be out of luck if you are not targeted.

    • Fair enough. During previous deals people were able to get the deal via the telephone even if they hadn’t been targeted. I have updated the post with your experiences as to not mislead people.

  2. Yeah this is old news and has been reported by many bloggers in detail. This offer only works for you if you have been targetted.Otherwise you get error message online and a rude response on phone.

    Wouldn’t it be better if you tried the methods yourself before spreading the misinformation ?

    • If you look in the comments of the previous post about this, several people were able to get the offer. I did say it was targeted in the body of this post, so I’m not sure what else you are looking for.

      • I would not call it misinformation but I think a couple of things could be clarified. First, the title should say the offer is targeted. Second, it has been reported elsewhere that if you get the error message that means you are not targeted and if you are not targeted your odds of approval are probably not very good if you try to call but hey maybe you might get lucky but be prepared to be grilled on where you got the offer.

      • Thanks for updating the post. Amex seems to be trying to crack down on people applying for this offer. There was a post on another blog about how trying multiple times with the incognito trick is no longer working. I noticed this has happened to me as well. I was able to get a 75K/5k offer a couple of weeks ago or so but now all I can get is 25k/5k but there have been a few reports of success still using a VPN(I guess to spoof the IP). You would think with the loss of Costco and JetBlue Amex would try harder to attract more customers.

  3. I received it in the mail. I recently applied and received two Chase cards (united and ink). I have two LLC and got one for each. Perhaps this is why Amex sent me one… but I got it.

    I just completed all my min. spending on my CCs. Is this an offer I should jump on? I also received a 100k miles for Amex Platinum not too long ago but had too many cards that need min. required amounts for bonus award.


  4. I received the offer in the mail. 75K points for spending $10,000. After spending $5,000 they gave me 50K points. I am still working on spending the rest of the requirements. It’s a good deal, in my opinion.

  5. I am able to get to the application page, but it doesn’t give me a “sole proprietor” option, just partner and corporation. Plus it formats my social as a EIN. Can I do this on my SSN?
