    Hi. I applied for the 100K platinum promo back in January and was assured that I was eligible for bonus and satisfied the requirement of not having had a gold card within past 90 days. Then, after I relied and spent the $3000, etc, Amex said I wasn't eligible. Happily - they reversed and gave me the points. Here's my blog post if you are interested in reading about it.

    On occasion in the past I've had to spend a few weeks wrestling with them to get the MQM bonuses.

    It astounds me that these point giveaways are intended to create gratitude and loyalty yet how often do we hear about the issuers screwing around, pissing people off, making them jump through hoops, etc. And in the end, they cause frustration and alienation! Nice business model!

    Is that a promotion that comes around a few times a year or only in January?

    I've read conflicting things about when the 100K bonus posts. I received my second statement for the Platinum card on Tuesday and then met the spend on Wednesday. Will I see the bonus points posted after the 3rd statement is posted or do AmEx MR bonus points ever show between statements?

    Disregard my previous post as my 100,000 MR points just posted this morning. :)
