This nice little gift showed up in my wife’s Amex Platinum this morning. The new Amex bonus offer is to spend $1500 on the targeted card to receive 1,000 bonus points. The kicker is that you can do this up to 3 times. The offer expires November 20 so plenty of time to get an early start on holiday shopping.

Easy Points to Attain!

If you use your Amex cards for typical spend like we sometimes do, especially when we travel, this can be an easy way to earn some good Membership Reward points. As we all know, Membership Reward points can be quite valuable and transfer over to many partners, sometimes with transfer bonuses. So your additional 3,000 points could translate to sometimes 25% more depending on your transfer partner.

The language is typical for this offer and doesn’t prohibit you from taking advantage of any other offers that may come your way. I checked all of our other accounts and have yet to see it appear, but am hopeful that more may be added. Not a bad offer to simply just spend on your card and as I mentioned above, these points can mean more to me than most. So check your cards and see if you can get some easy points.
