I tried calling amex to see if they could guarantee the 75k before I applied, but they couldn't help.

Anyone have any advice?
Not really. I just took the leap of faith myself. In fact, I applied using the 10k link since I couldn't find a 25k link. Now we'll see what they say.

But if you are not, just email them with your blue cash card, but put your application reference number in the email and explain in the email that you have not got the card, but just see this ID bonus promotion and want to get it.

I did the same and got it.
Thanks for the response. I haven't got the gold card yet. I just applied for it yesterday . I will select the BlueCash card when sending the message with those information. Sorry one more question, what Subject/Category did you choose? Or does it matter?

While I didn't get the Amex plat 50 => 100, I did get the Gold PR 25 => 75.

Thanks again Ingy!

When I click on the link I get to the Gold card application page, but it recognizes I'm already a member (I have a Green card) and invites me to enter my user/pass or CC# to upgrade. No mention of any bonus.



When I try to do so, I get an error saying the info doesn't match their records (tried a few times) and now I get an error saying to try again in 24 hours.

I've sent a secure message and I'm awaiting further instruction. I'm worried though that if I get the 25k, having already sent a secure message, I'd be pushing my luck to send *another* secure message asking for 75k.

I'd be fine with 25k though.

I don't think upgrading will get you MR points. Just clear your cookies, cache, etc. and reapply as a new member

"The terms and conditions say the offer is not valid for current Amex consumer charge card members. So if you have the Amex Gold, Platinum, Green and Zync cards, you may not be eligible for this offer. Disclosure: I DO NOT earn any referral bonus if you follow the link mentioned in this post."

Bummer.

Ok, I got shot down. I'd just signed up for the 10k link, got instant approval and got the following:

I understand that this may be disappointing to you; however, because many of our offers are targeted to specific types of Cardmembers, you can expect to see various promotions throughout the year for which you may be eligible. Our intent is to provide offers that will appeal to various interests and different types of people.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to assisting you in the future.

Can you offer any assistance in correcting this since I haven't even received or activated my card so I can receive an additional 50,000 points? Thank you for any help you can provide.
Best,
I sent this to "MR points balance". I don't have a charge card but I do have an SPG card. I'm thinking of re-sending in a few days hoping for more luck. What are the magic words that you guys used? I think I'm the only one in this thread that got turned away. This was on my Dad's card (doesn't live in the US anymore so credit history is irrelevant) and I was hoping that if this went through I would do mine too.

I think I choose "Rewards Definition.."
Not sure it matter or not.. but it does regarding the reward question.

At the beginning of this thread, I had successfully contacted MR by phone and got switched to the better offer. My DH applied for an account, activated it last night, and send a secure message to "MR balance" and got a denial message this morning. The person's name sounds very american, unlike the other names we've been seeing? Note the "senior manager," anyone else get that?

I appreciate your interest in the bonus ID 5894 offer associated with the Premier Card for 75,000 bonus points.

I would like to inform you that this offer was sent to a limited number of Cardmembers by solicitation.

Since your account was not solicited for this offer, I'm afraid, we are unable to honor this promotional offer to you.

I understand that this may be disappointing to you, but because many of our offers are targeted to specific types of Cardmembers, you can expect to see various promotions throughout the year for which you may be eligible.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to assisting you in the future.

Sincerely, (american name) Senior Manager, Email Servicing Team American Express Interactive Services

Here's a direct link. YMMV as far as actually getting the 25K MR however.

What number are people calling for MR? I got shot down via secure message.

EDIT: Actually, can someone just give me the number off the back of the card?
