[YMMV] Amex Platinum 100K bonus

-5 Deal Score
4,842 Views
Just received in the mail a invitation for Amex Platinum with 100K points when spending 5K in 3 months. Still the annual 550/year fee. I am a current Amex Delta gold card holder.

Wondering if anyone else is receiving these? Most I see online is 60K and might be pulling the trigger with an offer like this..

Additionally in the terms and conditions it says select Delta fares are eligible for 20% off...is this a new perk?

Cheers!

I got this too. I do not have any Amex cards and am looking to get my first one.

My research shows that the best redemption for points is travel. Other than that what else are good redemption methods? I hear cash has a low payout?

You are very lucky! However, the benefits of this card is really geared toward someone who travels alot. Things like $200 uber credit, lounge access, and the 100K MR points that is worth quite a bit... But if you don't travel much, don't get the card...

More info and discussion here at flyertalk forum thread on this card:

Yes, best redemption rate is travel. I use my Amex Plat mainly to transfer to Delta miles, but have also used it for hotel partners if the transfer made sense point value-wise.

HI

Thanks for the info. We don't plan on traveling anytime soon (new baby coming next month) so I will opt for the cashback AmEx card as my first AmEx card.

Why are you transferring your miles to delta when you have a platinum that gives you 35% points back for every delta flight booked with AMEX?

I have the normal Amex Platinum - I'm not aware of that 35% bonus. And normally I only use points when the monetary value exceeds 2 cents per point.

I believe he is referring to this:

transferring miles is better imo.

I see - it looks like it's only for the Business Platinum - I have the Personal one. I checked my benefits page and it's not on there. I would also probably not pick Delta since you're allowed a choice with this.

The point value sounds like it won't be more than 1.35 cents per point at best, which is much lower than how I value my AMEX point, so yes, transferring miles is always better for me.
