Get a better welcome offer on the Amex Business Platinum Card®: 250k still alive! Plus 190k, 150k offers.

Update April 2, 2024: A reader confirmed for us this morning that the 250k points offer after spending $15,000 in eligible purchases within 3 months is still alive. See the screenshot we posted below.

If you’re willing to hunt around, you might get a better-than-advertised welcome offer on the Amex Business Platinum Card®. Here’s what we know about these better-than advertised welcome bonuses.

Why can you get a better Amex Business Platinum Card® welcome bonus?

For some cards, including The Business Platinum Card®, Amex frequently offers better-than-advertised welcome bonuses. You might be able to get a better bonus through a friend’s referral link, by using an Incognito or Private Browsing window on your browser, by using a different computer, or even somewhat randomly by clicking through an affiliate link.

These increased bonuses come and go. Sometimes you’ll be able to get the best bonus, and sometimes you’ll hear that your friend was targeted for a huge bonus, but you simply cannot get that bonus to come up, no matter what you do.

Throughout our site, we will show you the best offer we know about that we have a reliable link to. When we know that there might be a better bonus available, we’ll launch a page like this and link to it from the other pages on our site.

The best offer we know of: 250k miles after spending $15k in 3 months. Alive as of April 2, 2024.

Status: Alive, but it takes hunting around. A reader set the following photo of the 250k offer they saw this morning.

They said that they found it in Internet Explorer (maybe they meant Microsoft Edge) and all they found it by waiting for their session to expire and refreshing the page. This method is detailed on our guide to how to get the best Amex welcome bonuses.

There is no direct link to this bonus. Your best bet to find this bonus is to follow the techniques in our guide.

Another offer we have seen: 190k miles after spending $15k in 3 months

Status: Alive as of April 2, 2024. We were able to pull this bonus up ourselves.

While researching another article, we came across a 190k offer after spending $15k within 3 months. See the screenshot below. We used a direct link to the The Business Platinum Card® from American Express in Incognito mode in Chrome. We found this offer on March 14, 2024. We confirmed it again on April 2, 2024 when updating this post.

One offer is in an Incognito window in Chrome and shows a welcome offer for 190,000 points. One offer is in a private browsing window in Safari and shows an offer for 120,000 points.
190k offer showed up in Incognito Mode in Chrome.

Unexpected offer: 150k offer (sometimes) showing up on our affiliate links

Status: Alive as of March 14, 2024. We were able to pull this bonus up ourselves.

You might be able to support our site and find a better Amex Business Platinum offer. When our links displayed an offer for 120,000 points after spending $15,000 within the first 3 months, we clicked through and found we were targeted for a better offer.

Our affiliate link showed a 120k offer, but we got targeted for a $150k offer.

Referral offer: 150k after only 8k of spending

Status: Possibly still alive, but recently-generated links have expired.

Some existing cardmembers were able to generate referral offers for 150k points after $8k spending as of earlier this year. These lucky Business Platinum cardholders can even earn points if you are approved through their links. We don’t currently have a link to this offer, but if we find one from someone we know, we’ll add it to this page.
