Deal Details

from flyertalk
here is the process

You need to do the CreditCards Card Match here: https://www.creditcards.com/cardmatch/

I put in all my information without my SSN. I had to do it in an incognito browser tab. Amex Platinum 100k Link showed up for me... Clicked "Apply Here" and it worked! I was approved for 100k MR after $3,000 Spending in 3 Mo's. I received a confirmation e-mail shortly thereafter with my approval information.

Also placed a phone call to American Express to confirm the sign up offer.

Can't get the offer. 1st year waived?
Amex never waives the fee for Platinum cards.

even with the 450 fee, the 100k points are worth at least $1,000 -- possibly much more if you transfer to partner airway reward programs. There are many other benefits to go along with the card, but even if you just want the bonus, it's worth paying $450 for one year then canceling. How many other sign up bonuses will net you $550?

This is a FANTASTIC offer. Usually, it is only 50k points at best!

I have had a Platinum card for a long time and there is no fee on mine.
Maybe because it is a business cardConfused

It should be noted, that the thread on FT is closed due to moderator action not to say that this isn't an amazing deal. With the bonuses when transferred to partners. Just an FYI

I had my card for 5 months now and this is what I have used so far. Easily got $450/year back using these benefits.

-$200 Airline increment fee reimbursed.
-Unlimited airport lounge access on US Airways, Delta, AA with Platinum card.
-AMEX pays for Priority Select, which gives you access to over 500 lounges world wide, for main card holder and if you can get 3 extra cards for $175, and AMEX pays for those 3 as well.
-Book your hotel with Platinum card and it gives you early check in, late check out as late as 4 pm, usually free continental breakfast for 2.
-Free concierge service. I've used to locate iPhone 5 when it was so hard to find, and they called 30 places nearby my house and found one.
-90 days Purchase protection. Any purchase you made within 90 days can be reimbursed for any reason. Theft, damaged, defective, etc...

These are the main benefits I use it for. Absolutely worth $450 a year. If you get priority select, they give you 5 year membership, so even you cancel after the first year, you are left with extra 4 years of Priority Select.
