Forums Payment cards American Express When does the 90,000 points Amex referral cap reset?

    Hello. I was told (both here and by Amex on live chat) that there is a referral limit of 90k MR or Avios per account.
    On my Platinum charge card, I received 3 * 24k 6 months ago. I received a further 24k this week.
    Does the 90k limit reset at the start of a calendar year, or is this a glitch of some sort?

    Interestingly, I have a 2nd pot of MR for my PRG on the same account. Not sure how this came into existence but has been there for some time. I have made a number of referrals from the PRG card which takes the combined referral bonus on the account to over 150k in under a year.

    Right so that explains the 96k on the Plat, thanks.

    Do you think the PRG 2nd pot of MR is due to a bug then?

    If you have separate MR accounts then you will have separate referral caps. You can merge the accounts – useful if you want to close one card but keep the MR – but you would then only have one referral cap.
