Getting 100,000 points from a single credit card is a big deal, and this one has popped up quite frequently in the last several months. According to Doctor of Credit, it appears it is back as a new round of users have been targeted for a 100,000-point sign-up bonus on the American Express Platinum card! No credit pull necessary to see if you qualify.

New to American Express cards? Check to see if you’re eligible for the 100,000-point offer through CardMatch. Based on past evidence, it seems that those who have never held an American Express card have the best chance of being selected for this offer.

The normal welcome bonus offer is 60,000 points after $5,000 in spending in the first three months. This offer to earn 100,000 Membership Rewards after $5,000 in spend matches the highest rewards offering ever for this card. You can easily get $1,000 in free travel from this bonus – and likely several times more than that.


Amex Platinum CardMatch


If you’ve never heard of CardMatch, it is run by Creditcards.com and helps prospective cardholders find targeted credit card offers. Every person will likely have different offers presented to them based on what cards they hold in their wallet. The best part is there is no credit pull or inquiry to see what is being offered.



The American Express Platinum card is a favorite of the Thrifty Traveler team. Besides the outstanding 100,000-point welcome offer, it gets you in the door to more airport lounges worldwide than any other credit card. That includes Delta SkyClubs, 1,000-plus Priority Pass Lounges, Escape Lounges – including the one at Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) – and the exclusive Centurion Lounges.

You also earn 5x points when purchasing airfare directly through airlines – the best return you’ll find. In my opinion, it is the best card for Delta flyers.


Features on the American Express Platinum card


The card does come with a seemingly hefty $550 annual fee. But with the different credits and the sign-up bonus, that can easily be wiped out. The Membership Rewards points earned from the card can be transferred to Delta, Air France/KLM, ANA, and Singapore Airlines, just to name a few. You can also use the points to buy flight deals you find here at Thrifty Traveler or Thrifty Traveler Premium.


Bottom Line 

I’d make sure to check CardMatch’s offers right away as they could pull this offer at any time. This offer matches the highest I have ever seen on the card, so if you are targeted, I would jump on it right away.

    Hello I have a question. I’m an American Express Platinum card holder in December 26 I apply for the global entry. As of today I have not received any mail. Is this normal ?? Where do I check for my status. Thank you.

  2. JCannon says:

    Wondering why my husband or myself never see AMEX offers in Cardmatch? Anyone else run into that?

  3. Luke P says:

    I don’t see AMEX either. If you hold an AMEX card already they may not offer to you. I’m guessing that’s what’s happening with me.

    A while ago Thrifty Traveler posted something in regards to using a Delta companion ticket to help pay for a international flight, has there been any further information on this? I called Delta and they said they haven’t gotten any word on this yet? Wondering if you know anything more about this? I want to go to Ireland and my companion ticket would certainly help defray the cost.

  5. Mary Wiebold says:

    Pair it with an International Fare Deal

    Consider using your Delta companion ticket to lower the costs of an international getaway.

    This is the statement I was referring to. Can you explain this to me please?

    • Nick Serati says:

      This section of the post I linked is referring to positioning yourself to another US airport to take advantage of a deal. For example, if you are looking to fly from MSP to Germany but it is cheaper to fly out of Chicago, you could use your companion certificate to get yourself to Chicago.

  6. Mary Wiebold says:

    Okay, now I understand what you are saying. Thank you.

  7. Mary says:

    I have great credit but the AMEX card did not pop up when I went through cardmatch. Anyone know what’s going on?

    • Nick Serati says:

      Hard to know exactly how Amex is targeting people for the 100k offer. If you already have an Amex card, it’s likely you won’t be targeted.
