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.

I got instant approval too. For Platinum, PRG, and Delta Amex 45K. I don't travel much so wondering if the Platinum would be worthwhile. I can simply look at it like getting 100K bonus ~ $1000 - $450 Annual fee = $550 free. Put that way seems like a no-brainer.
Slickde@ler, did you give the initial site your SSN?

AMAZING deal. I got in on two different versions of this card in the last 2 years and only got 50k points. 100k points is easily worth $1k, and you get $200 back/year towards airline fees (you can usually get GC's to use on flights) + lounge access! So worth it! If you have any questions feel free to ask me or PM.

Quick question, after you apply and are approved, where does it tell you that you get the 100K for spending $3,000?

For some reason my browser successfully submitted, but then errored up after submission, and in my e-mail acceptance I don't see anything about the 100K rewards.

Thanks for the help.
