75K Membership Reward Points for American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card (YMMV)
by: The Nomad
(HT: Flyertalk thread and our reader Sean)
Most of you already know about the 25K Membership Reward (MR) Points signup bonus offer for American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card. Regular readers also know that I applied for the card with this offer in my latest mini App-O-Rama.
Our reader Sean alerted me that there is 75K targeted offer for this card right now. Then I found this flyertalk thread where the OP said that the bonus code for the 75K offer is ‘5894’. I immediately called American Express Customer Service (1-800-528-4800). I explained to them that I had recently been approved for the Premier Rewards Gold Card with 25K MR signup bonus. However, there is a 75K signup bonus with offer code ‘5894’. I told them that normally I throw away my junk mail. So, I am not sure if I am eligible for this offer. After a bit of hold, the rep told me that the bonus code has been applied to my account. I would need to call them up after I had spent $500 in 3 months to get the 75K bonus.
I am not sure if I was really targeted for the offer. I do throw away my junk mail; but I scan them for any credit card offers. I don’t remember receiving any mailing from American Express. But then, I could have missed it.
If you have never had an Amex charge card or have closed it at least 2 years earlier, this might be worth a shot! 75K MR points is a lot!!
If you are still wondering why I am excited at having got this offer, see this post. Best of Luck!
