    I just got this by email, and it sounds like a good deal unless I'm missing something. It does seem to be targeted. Does anyone have any insight on inSite? :)

    Sounds like a no-brainer if it is just a matter of installing the download before May 31. You can always un-install at a later date. 10,000 Membership Rewards Points for a download does not sound bad, just make sure you comply with the T&C.

    This would seem to indicate that it is indeed targeted........

    It is targeted. I got it, too. However, it doesn't cost too much to give it a shot even if you're not targeted. It's possible it's just link-based and not cross-matched with an internal list of invitees. Simply download it, sign in, then see if anything posts to your account. I did it on an old laptop that I never use because I hate cluttering up my computer with these applications.

    Is there a direct link to sign up for this? I didn't find a place to enter the bonus ID.

    Link doesn't make you log-in to amex. they may just be looking for insite logins.

    downloaded and installed. did a search, not seeing that AMEX blue button showing up on the search results page

    besides the one time login, I don't see any indication that this is linked to your AMEX account

    The best thing to do with all of these toolbars is to have a virtual machine ready :). VM's have been my best friend and work as a sandbox for me on testing executables and installs.

    I emailed and asked where my points were. They said they had no record of it but that they were going to give me 10k as a goodwill gesture! :)

    I should have done that...instead I asked if I would qualify for the 10K if I downloaded it per the promo.... and they said no since I was not targeted. But I didn't want to push my luck since I just asked them to match the 75K miles versus the 25K I just signed up for. My first bill hasn't even ran yet and I hope that maybe at another time they will offer me something for Insite or Pay over Time...

    That is bonus ID, they were asking for promotional offer identification number (POID). It consists of four digits of letters and numbers followed by hyphen or semi-colon and four digits of numbers, such as T609:1101.

    Ok, I wrote back with the Bonus ID anyway. They acknowledged that they see the promotion in my account and the points would be credited in 6-8 weeks. We'll see if they actually post in this time frame.

    Ah, gotcha. I just went back to the offer email and didn't see any POID. Glad you have the bonus though. I'm monitoring my points too, and will post here when they post for me.

    That's really great. I asked them about my points, and they told me that I have to wait until the post, which would be 6-8 weeks. I'm tempted to send them another message.

    Do I miss anything? I used the above link and I don't see any 10K bonus. Should I just download? What triggers getting the 10K? Thanks!

    OK I tried again no dice but the rep did say (I did install from link above) and I did log in via the install of the software that I was resisted and she saw this in my record (I did not get the "official" email) and that I should get the points by July 31. If not call back and they will manually add them!
