250,000 MR Targeted Business Platinum (need TEN $5k+ individual transactions to max)

[IMG][/IMG]

Anyway, I have gotten no less than 8 targeted offers from Amex for a business I created in October. I have gotten 2 150k Platinum, 3 100k platinum, and 3 75k gold offers.

So here you go, never heard or saw of this one before. Spend $5,000 in 6 months get 50k points. For every PURCHASE of $5,000 get 20,000 points up to 10 times for a total of up to 250,000 points. It's clear that the transaction has to be over $5,000 not statement balance. I have 6 months to do it. I am thinking about it. Never had the card before and I can pay my quarterly taxes that way since I have 6 months. So pay $900 in fees to get 250k + 50k = 300k MR points.

It does have the exclusion for previous cardholders. I am not . My wife did one of the 150k point ones last month.

We havent gotten this one yet, but have gotten many 100k and then recently a 150k offer. I was bummed we didnt get the 150K offer in time to set it up and use it to pay taxes as the would have been a quick way to get the 150k MR points.

They're one time use codes... I am going to use one or the other. I will give out a bunch of 75k business gold and 100k platinum codes, I have 5-6 to be used. I am heading to Mexico tomorrow, PM me, and in a week or so I will send them out. NONE are any good if you've had the card before.

If anyone is not using this offer, I would take their code for my business account, please. I don't have any previous cards that would prevent fulfillment.

I received the same offer but I don't see any language on there that excludes from getting the bonus again.

Is there a particular section where this language is located?

Thanks

Got this offer yesterday. It definitely has the usual language, "Welcome bonus not available if you have or have had this card." I threw that part of the paperwork away, but it is in the same place it always is near the top of the long list of terms & conditions.

I though all AMEX targeted offers have no such restrictions.
