How long for pay over time sign-up bonus to post?

Was offered 5k MR points to sign up for pay over time. Did it, and I have been seeing the option to use it when I pay my bill for a couple of months now. Still no sign of the bonus points showing up in my points or pending points. Anyone have any recent experience? TYIA.

We're Sorry...

None of the Cards associated with this online account are eligible for the Extended Payment Option.

If you have any questions, please call the customer service phone number on the back of your Card.

I got a mail flyer offering the extended payment option but no bonus! I tried the link above and it says either my bonus offer has expired or the offer is only available by invitation and that I can "apply" for the extended payment option (I'm assuming with no bonus so no thanks).

Edit to add that this is in ref to biz plat, I did get the 10K bonus on my now canceled personal plat in 2013.

Amex Business Platinum 10K points for enrolling in Pay Over Time

Called today to ask a question about my bill. Was offered by the agent to received 10K points just for enrolling in Pay Over Time. Maybe this is old news but I figured I would post this. Also was told that starting in June, there would be 30% MR points rebate if MR points are redeemed for an airline of choice.

Thank you. These bonus offers seem to come in waves, separated by periods in which they encourage cardholders to enroll, but do not offer a bonus.

The other "enhancement" is actually a revision of an existing benefit, see discussion here:

Looks like to bonuses for Extended Payment Option are back. I just got a 10k offer on my Biz Gold today. Came via snail mail and expires 11/1/2016.

To see if you are eligible try americanexpress.com/openpayovertime59

Judging by the url I am guessing that this is probably available only to Biz card holders, and possibly only Biz Gold.

Good luck. I love free points!

10000 Amex points for enrolling "Extended Payment Option"

It seems to be a targeted offer, one 10000 point reward per account. I received for Amex platinum biz, but couldn't get it worked on Amex gold biz...

Take a screenshot before you accept this offer. I received this offer online, by email, and by snail mail for a plat account a while back. I accepted the offer online, but the points did not post automatically. Despite receiving the offer through three venues, multiple phone reps insisted that I was never offered bonus points for enrolling for extended pay. They finally gave me the points after I dug up the email of the offer and mailed a printout to them (at their request). The whole experience left a very sour taste in my mouth and was very contrary to the friendly, helpful service they're always bragging about.

Received a letter in the mail about enrolling in the Select & Pay Later feature for my PRG card.

First two paragraphs from the letter:

You have been qualified for enrollment in the Select & Pay Later feature as of 11/30/2015. This feature provides ... [No mention of any bonus ]

If you do not want to be enrolled in Select & Pay Later, please contact us using the number on the back of your Card and request to have the feature cancelled. You will not be able to request charges to be moved to Pay Over Time balance after cancellation.


Does this means that I am signed up for the feature even though I never asked for it and need to call to cancel?
