think i could apply in my mother's name using my sister's RSVP code? my sis is ok with it, but she wouldn't be an additional cardholder (she already has one via dad).

Great Offer! Do you mind me asking what your spending patterns are like, what amex card you currently have and how long you've been with amex? I'm curious to see what type of customers amex targets.

yes, I did something similar and it worked fine. It was not for the Plat but for an Amex Business Gold.

OF COURSE I APPLY ONLY TO HAVE MY MOTHER GIVE ME THE WRONG SSN. just called amex plat services, they said if they don't contact us nothing we can do about it. hopefully this doesn't screw things up... :/

lil sis is 21. she has an amex plat mercedes benz card under my father's account. we've had the card since dec 2011. prob spent maybe $8k total on the card. has great credit scores (around 800 on karma/sesame) and never had any credit issues, but doesn't work or have any loans, just a few credit cards. been sitting on this offer, which is for the PRG according to the mailing, for maybe 3 weeks now. i did plug in her and all my other siblings info's when they were having that 75k PRG targetted website offers maybe a month ago, but none of them pulled up anything. maybe she was targeted after that and that's how they got her info...

awesome. I wonder if I can call amex up and see if they will offer me a targeted bonus. I usually spend around 30-40k a year with my blue cash card. And i've had it for 8 years and always paid off my balance, so I've essentially been using it as a charge card. Maybe I can "threaten" to move all my spending to my new chase sapphire card. Wonder if that will work

I got it last year and I jumped on it. Just make sure you keep the invitation until you get the points. I threw mine out and it was a little bit of a challenge to get the points but it all worked out in the end. Congrats on the offer!
