Targeted: CardMatch 100K Amex Platinum Offer Is Back

In the interest of full disclosure, One Mile At A Time earns a referral bonus for anyone that’s approved through some of the below links. These are the best publicly available offers that we have found for each card. Opinions expressed here are the author's alone, not those of the bank, credit card issuer, airlines or hotel chain, and have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by any of these entities. Please check out my advertiser policy for further details about our partners, including American Express, Capital One, Chase, and Citi, and thanks for your support!

The CardMatch Tool, which is offered by, often gives people access to bigger targeted card welcome bonuses. In order to use the tool you have to enter your name, address, and last four of your social security number, and based on that, it may make certain targeted offers available to you.

Last November I wrote about how there was a targeted 100K welcome bonus on the Amex Platinum Card through the CardMatch Tool. The bonus stayed around for a while, then it seemed to disappear for a while, and then it returned again in February. Then in early April it seemed to make another return.

Doctor Of Credit reports that a new batch of people have now been targeted for this offer, so if you haven’t taken advantage of this deal in the past, you’ll want to see if you’re targeted.

To see if you’re eligible for this welcome bonus of 100,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $5,000 within three months, enter your info through this link. You might have to click on either “Pre-Qualified” or “CardMatch Special Offers” on the left side of the page to find this offer.

This is significantly better than the current publicly available bonus of 60K Membership Rewards points.

Again, this is targeted, so not everyone will be eligible. However, in general it makes sense to check the CardMatch Tool periodically to see if you’re targeted for any offers. Hopefully some of you are eligible for this 100K Amex Platinum Card offer and can take advantage of this.

The $550 annual fee Amex Platinum Card is one of my all around favorite credit cards, and comes with so many awesome benefits, including:

Get access to Amex Centurion Lounge with your Amex Platinum Card

If you are targeted for this offer, then I highly recommend taking advantage of this killer deal. The CardMatch Tool may also have targeted offers for some other cards (including the Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card, which sometimes offers a targeted welcome bonus of up to 50,000 points), so I recommend checking it out to see what you’re eligible for.

Were you targeted for an Amex Platinum Card 100K offer (or anything else interesting) through the CardMatch Tool?

  1. If you’ve received an Amex platinum signup bonus in the past are you eligible if you’ve been targeted?

  2. @ Mark — You’ll want to look at the terms of the application through CardMatch. If it says the bonus isn’t available to those who previously had the card (which I think it does) then you wouldn’t be eligible. However, sometimes applications don’t have that “lifetime” language, in which case you may be eligible.

  3. How many times have I seen this in the last 3+ years: about thirty (and checked every time)
    How many times have I been targeted: 0

    A lot of wasted time.

    #1 reason I haven’t dabbled in MR.

  4. I seem to never be targeted for this offer. My credit score and income would seem to indicate that I should qualify. Any suggestions?

  5. I too never get targeted. I never get any Amex on CardMatch, period. Excellent credit, makes no sense!

  6. I got targeted and my terms didn’t have the “once per lifetime” wording. Applied for the card six months ago and met the 5k spend limit within the first month.. my 100k bonus just posted. Whoo hoo! (I was starting to get worried I wasn’t going to get it.)
