Update: The offer now appears to be dead. Congrats to those who got in. Hopefully it is just the first of many great deals in 2013. As is typical, you gotta act quickly.
Not sure how long this will last, so I wanted to briefly share some crazy stuff that is going on with Amex offers right now. Via Travel Summary, if you go to creditcards.com and put your info in to search for “offers matched for you” on the upper left of the screen then many, many folks are getting offers for 100,000 Membership Reward Points from American Express Platinum cards after spending $3,000 in the first three months (comes with $450 annual fee) and offers for 50,000 Membership Reward points from Premier Rewards Gold cards after spending $1,000 in the first three months ($175 annual fee waived the first year).
This is just crazy, and while the site creditcards.com states that it has offers none other has, this just smells too good to be true. I can’t personally vouch for this (these are not my affiliate links), but others are getting approvals and I have no reason to think it isn’t good other than it just seems too good to last for long!
When you enter your info on creditcards.com you can leave off your SSN. You can save that for the Amex site. I personally was offered both of the offers listed above, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet myself. I’m at least going to sleep on it. However, if you want in for sure you might want to move quicker than that.
