I have a physical invite for this, but it's in a family members name. Do you think one would have any luck crossing out the name and sending it in with my information for the 75k?

Another data point

I received my card an hour ago. Gave a call to Membership Rewards and said I heard about this new offer with bonus id .., could I get that offer? Asked me to hold and after a minute she said it has been applied to my account. I need to call after making 500$ purchase and they will then add the points manually. yay!!

That's great!

Just curious, which bonus did you applied for, 10K or 25K miles?

Which new offer bonus did you asked for, 50K or 75K, or which bonus ID #?

Thanks.

5985. It may be a new code as I just got it in the mail today. It requires $1000 spend for 75k points.

I just applied and wondered how I email to ask about upgrading to the 75,000 offer. It won't let me email or make an account without a credit card.

you need to wait for the card, then activate it online and setup online access.

then you can use secure messaging to send an inquiry (Membership Rewards --> Points Balance)

I signed up under one of the links here. I clicked on the 25K offer, but is would change to the 10K offer. I signed up anyway. Got my card and called CS and they said I did get signed up for 25K.
Sent a Secure Msg and got turned down, sent another one and got this:

Dear Bodice22,

You will be happy to know that I have issued 50,000 points to your account. The remaining 25,000 points will be awarded within 6-8 weeks of completing $1,000 spending.

Have a great weekend!

Sincerely, M. xxxxx, Senior Manager, Email Servicing Team American Express Interactive Services


Thanks for all your help guys!
