Seems like they have different rules if you are applying via referral – bonus is bigger but restrictions are set to allow only completely new amex users

This isn’t correct, the qualifying criteria are the same whether applying via referral or directly from Amex application page.

I generated my own referral for BAPP and opened Platinum T&C under the offer details
The 80,000 Membership Rewards bonus points will be awarded onto your Account if you are a new customer and you have applied after midnight 11 October 2023 and before 11:59pm GMT 9 January 2024 and once you have been approved and you have spent and charged £10,000 within the first six months of Cardmembership. Cardmembership begins from Card approval. Please note that it can take up to one month for bonus points to be awarded to your Account. You will receive an additional 25,000 Membership Rewards® points if you make a transaction within month 15 of Cardmembership. You must apply for The Platinum Card® by 9 January 2024 to be eligible for this limited time offer.

Please note that your offer is correct at the time of viewing. This offer may change or become unavailable at a later date if you return to your Referral Hub or Mobile App Account. Your offer could be subject to change if your Card is lost, stolen or replaced. At least 80,000 Membership Rewards® bonus points will be awarded onto your Account once you have been approved and you have spent a minimum of £10,000 on goods and services purchased and charged to your Account within six months of Account opening. To qualify for the additional 25,000 points in month 15 of Cardmembership, one (1) purchase of any amount must be charged to your Platinum Card® within month 15 of Cardmembership and subsequently posted to your Account. All spend must be made on the Card you were originally approved for to be eligible. You must apply via the button on the previous page to ensure you both receive your bonus. Applicants must be UK residents aged 18 years old or over. If you have already applied for The Platinum Card® without using this referral, you will not be eligible for the bonus points. All introductory offers are subject to change and can be withdrawn at any time. You will not be eligible for any welcome bonus offer if you hold or have held any personal American Express Cards in the past 24 months.
