Last week, I wrote about the opportunity to earn an additional 20,000 Membership Rewards (MR) Points on top of the spend bonus (applicable to all new American Express Platinum Card members) of 75,000 MR Points when you use my unique referral link. American Express has now changed this offer to 40,000 bonus MR points (equivalent to at least 25,000 miles) for spending S$5,000 within the first 3 months of card approval. The American Express Platinum Card comes with a huge range of benefits and despite the hefty 'price tag' of S$1,712 each year, card members can easily offset that cost with the travel credits, free hotel stay and perks that come with this beautiful metal card.
To get the most points for your spend, The American Express Platinum Card offers 20 MR Points per S$1.60 (approx. 7.8 miles per S$1) spent at participating Platinum EXTRA Partners (up to the first S$16,000 each year). Spend above the annual limit of S$16,000 at these partners will earn 10 MR Points per S$1.60 (approx 3.9 miles per S$1). Therefore, if you are eyeing a luxury watch and if you are planning to purchase it from The Hour Glass, spending S$20,000 there under this referral bonus will get you
First S$16,000: 200,000 MR Points
Next S$4,000: 25,000 MR Points
Referral Bonus: 40,000 MR Points
New Member Spend Bonus: 75,000 MR Points
Total: 340,000 MR Points (Approximately 212,500 Miles)
