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.

Over a year ago I wrote about how there was a targeted 100K welcome bonus on The Platinum Card from American Express through the CardMatch Tool. The bonus stayed around for a while, and I’ve written about it every couple of months, because it seems like more people are constantly being targeted for the offer. So if you weren’t targeted in the past, it pays to check again.

Every time I write about it I know a bunch of new people apply, so I’m guessing it’s a combination of new people being targeted, and also a lot of people having just not checked the previous time to see if they were targeted.

The CardMatch Tool continues to show this incredible 100K point offer, and there are also reports of more people being targeted, so if you haven’t yet applied and are eligible, I’d highly recommend doing so.

Finding the 100k offer

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 60,000 Membership Rewards points after $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months.

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 100,000 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:

Does using the CardMatch tool count as a credit pull?

While you do have to enter some personal information when using the CardMatch Tool (including your name, address, and the last four of your social security number), using the CardMatch Tool doesn’t count as a hard pull. CardMatch just does a soft pull on your credit, so checking your CardMatch offers (no matter how often) won’t impact your credit in any way.

I check my CardMatch offers all the time, in hopes of being targeted for a special offer.

If you don’t check the CardMatch Tool every so often, I’d certainly recommend doing so. That’s especially true if you don’t have the Amex Platinum Card, as it means you have decent odds of being targeted for the current 100K offer on the card. If you are targeted for the offer, then applying for the card should be a no brainer.

Bottom line

If you are targeted for this offer, then I highly recommend taking advantage of it. The CardMatch Tool may also have targeted offers for some other cards, so I recommend checking it out to see what you’re eligible for.

  1. Can you be targeted if you have previously had this card and a sign-up bonus from it? Would you get bonus again?

  2. Just canceled ameriprise version…is “regular” version still an option for an intro bonus?

  3. Lucky, I have used this tool every time you come up with a promo and mention it. I have always gotten the same card offers and I have usually 80% of them already. I never get any AMEX promotion. I find it difficult to believe this is a legit promotion since I have “excellent” credit, AMEX cards you have except this one, same Chase cards you have, same Citi cards you have plus one, same Barclays and BA cards you have.

    Just giving you a heads up as I suspect you always get the great offer just so that you will POST it and draw many applicants to their site.

    Best to regard these regular articles on the same theme as a fishing expedition. If 1% of readers see this offer and click through to accept it, then that is probably decent revenue for the site owner.

    Would i do that? No. But do I understand it? Sure.

  5. @matenai, I had the same problem up until the last month. I picked up some tips from the points guy that apparently made the difference. Use Chrome, or another browser, in incognito mode, so cookies aren’t stored on your computer. Try with and without your middle name, or with other legal variations of your name. If you have have different addresses you can use, try them all. Good luck.

  6. I was targeted on Cardmmatch after having waited an “eternity” (almoSt 10 years) for the 10000 bonus offer. However, no joy because when I applied on AMEX for the card, the pop up came up to say I will not be getting the bonus. This is despite having a FICO score of over 830 and currently no other AMEX cards and never having had AMEX platinum. Called CS and they would not help! Any suggestios Lucky? Thanks
