I just checked too....I was really hoping for a 100k offer for the Platinum but only got 60k under both mine and husband's name. We are going to call AMX later today and see if there is any shot at the 100k offer via phone.
I read somewhere else on FT that someone recently got a mail 100k offer. If I can't get 100k via phone I might hold out for the mail.
I definitely don't want to apply without getting that 100k offer now.

No. American Express (USA) has no mechanism for transferring points from one Membership Rewards account to another. You could transfer your points to one of her frequent flyer accounts, if you first request a supplementary card for her on your card account.
Thanks for the info!

What are the rules about getting the bonus if you already received it?

No one has posted the terms of this specific offer, but if it includes this sentence you would very likely not qualify:

This offer is also not available to applicants who have or have had a Platinum Card account enrolled in the Membership Rewards program.
(See post 25 for a better answer provided by rstlsgirl . )

That's because no one really knows. There is ambiguity about whether personal, Ameriprise, Fidelity, Goldman-Sachs, Mercedes, and Morgan Stanley cards disqualify a bonus for all other Platinum cards. The way the terms are worded they might, because they are all Platinum Cards which participate in Membership Rewards. However, American Express practice frequently differs from written policy, and usually in the customers' favor. The only way to know is to apply and report the results.

From TPG Blog: "Its important to note for both of these cards, these offers are not available to applicants who have or have had this product, so if youve ever had before you wouldnt be able to sign-up again and receive the bonus."

There is no application, you have to go to cardmatch.com and enter your information to see if you have a targeted offer.

Right, but then you click the link to apply for the offer and it takes you off the cardmatch site and to the application page

Nevermind, I just tried it with a different amex offer from cardmatch and they do not transfer, it asks you to login when you try and go to the link. Bummer.

Card Match seems so random. I have several Amex and Chase cards, including a biz plat. Score over 750. And it matches me up to 1 stinking card
