How often do Amex do an increased sign up bonus for getting Platinum?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know historically how often Amex have done a promotion with the increased sign up bonus for The Platinum car? For example there was recently a 60,000 sign up bonus, how long before that was the previous promotion and how big was ? Has there ever been a 100k sign up bonus?

    I’m curious to know because I don’t know whether to hold off and wait for a better sign up than 30k points or just get it now.

    Many thanks!

    I don’t know the direct answer to your question, but one thing to bear in mind is that if you apply this month you will get this year’s £150 UK + £150 foreign dining credits if you can use them this year plus £50 Harvey Nichols and then you would get the same again on 1 Jan.

    My referral is currently showing 50k for a plat sign up, I’m sure the HfP team will have a similar offer they can share

    That’s interesting that it varies between accounts.

    That’s a good point. I would probably be able to make use of all of those before the new year.

    @VerdantBacon
    any chance you could share your referral link for 50k? Thanks in advance if so!

    Drop Rob an email and ask him first, general etiquette here is to give the referrals to the HfP team considering we all get to read everything for free!
