Applied and approved. Used the two-browser trick to apply for the HHonors card that I have been thinking about applying as well.

Me. My wife. My 2 older sons. My daughter in law. 5 PRG apps. 5 approvals. Had to call in for recon on one of them. Other 4 were instant. 250K MR points for 5K spend--no annual fees. C'mon bonus transfers!

Applied and got approved instantly.. that never happens for me... got the screenshot confirming the 100k points after 3k spend looks like pretty much everyone is getting approved!

Signed up for this about a month ago. The offer has been available there for a while. Will replace the DL SkyPesos AmEx in my wallet. Haven't hit the $3k yet so no confirmation of the points posting.

Amex plat airline credit

FYI - you only get the credit as you spend it on your airline of choice. They don't just give you $200 each year automagically

I have a fraud alert, so I always call as soon as I submit the online application. I submitted the app at about 6:30 pm today and called the application line about 2 seconds later. after directing me to the right person (a lovely rep in New Delhi), she told me I was approved.

btw- I canceled my personal PRG card a few months ago. I have a business PRG card.

So the general opinion is that current holders of Gold Business card are not disqualified from this offer, right?
I've been waiting for the 100K Amex Platinum for over a year now, would be really sad to miss the offer because of having the Gold Business card that I was just about to close.

I have a Delta Gold Biz and Personal Card, and a Amex Business Gold Rewards Card. Just applied for the Platinum card via the link (had to use safari after emptying cache/cookies). App was declared 'pending further review'. Called Amex at 866-314-0237 and talked to a guy in India. Super nice. He approved the application and confirmed the 100k MR points after $3k spend in 3 months offer. He was surprised at how good the offer was!

Offer Code?

Applied and approved and took several screen shots along the way, but forgot to see if there was a specific offer code (usually a 4 digit code buried in the T&Cs). If anyone caught or catches this, please post as I'm worried we're going to be fighting for these MRs.
