Is anyone currently getting Platinum sign up offers for 100k MR points?

I have the Delta Reserve currently but would like to switch to the platinum. I haven't seen a big offer recently, but was wondering if people were still getting targeted offers for the 100k sign up bonus? And if so, what is the required spend?

Thanks!

Anyone had luck calling and asking? Do y'all think already having the reserve hurts my chances of getting the offer?

Was this for the personal or the business plat card?

It's good to hear that personal offers are still out there. I've been seeing a lot of business 100k offers, but I really want a personal card. Anyone know if I can call them and ask to convert a business offer into a personal offer?

Any opinions on whether having the delta reserve card will help or hurt me?

All I ever get are the "You're pre-approved!" offers for 25k. I've been holding out for at least 6 months hoping they'll get the hint that I'm not going to bite for that little, but apparently not.

I haven't gotten new offers in a while. I'll prolly just call and ask at some point.

You should I did and even have a secure message from amex to verify the 100K even though I did the screenshots with my phone (date/time stamped) as was afraid this would not work. I would have not signed up unless given this offer. Have an SPG and really happy with it- 70K points after 4 months )ink signup. So from a point perspective I good and I could play the game, but don't really have the time or need. My long winded point is that as I am really happy with Amex and they give me such a kickstart to the platinum I am sure I am staying with them for years! Because now I will have close to 200K points not gaming the system with churning cards. Really happy!!!

My offers were 100 platinum, 50 gold, some of the other cards as well.
A few offers from capital one and a few bottom feeders who kindly offered 300 dollar in credit..

This forum is a great resource and I have learned so much from so few :-)

I got a 50,000 MR targeted offer for a Gold Business Card. They waived the annual fee of $175 a year. I signed up and immediately got the points after the $5,000 spend. Then 2 months later while I was logging into my AMEX online, I saw a pre-approved offer to upgrade it to Platinum. They gave 25,000 miles to upgrade. I already have an AMEX Platinum personal but I went for it since I got another 25k bonus miles plus the $200 airline refund.

The only downside is I would have had the no annual fee for a year but after upgrading it was $450 annual fee for the upgrade.
