    I have a post up about this on my blog, but I didn't see it mentioned yet here.

    Mixed success (as always), but some are having luck getting code 6661 applied to their Amex accounts (Premier Gold cards seem to be having the most success). It gives 75,000 bonus MR points for an authorized user spending $1000 in three months. Again, mixed success, but might be worth a shot!

    I called earlier today and got signed up for the 6661 code with my PRG, so it appears that it works. As soon as I get the AU card, make the spend and receive the points, I'll post back to verify the promo. Thanks mommypoints!

    Ha ha, yeah, sorry I just put the "highlights" here. These Amex deals are wearing me out (in a good way)!

    When I called about offer 6664, the MR CSR mentioned this one as well, and then said 6661 applies only to cards opened after July 1. Perhaps she was wrong, but this CSR seemed to go out of her way to try & help, so I give it some credence.

    Yeah, it didn't personally work for me either, but others are having better luck!

    I opened my card before July and the 6661 deal worked, so maybe try another CSR?

    No problem - glad it was helpful! Seems that code was intended as a new card sign-up bonus, but has worked in way more situations than just that (perhaps by dumb luck!). Either way, I'm happy about it. Glad it helped you!

    Is this an Australia only deal? I'm in Canada and would love to take advantage of it.

    There's a 15K Amex Gold Rewards available that I could apply for and use the code if possible.

    It took 3 calls today before someone would add 6661 for me.

    msgleff was actually targeted for 75k (with first purchase!). So she signed up for the card. I never received any of those offers, and as much as I wanted this card [great for airline tickets, gas/groceries especially] I was holding out. Yesterday morning i took the plunge with the 15k bonus, and thanks because I should now receive 75k instead :)

    Now, I don't know for sure that the code was applied correctly, that I'll see the miles without followup, but since the agent agreed to post the code I think I'll ultimately succeed in getting the points :)

    Thank you for sharing it...

    Now, once the card actually arrives, or maybe tomorrow, I'll seek to add 6664 ...

    Got approved by email three days ago for a PRG card, and I've been calling daily to try and apply code 6661. First two calls was told I needed the card in hand, third call today rep said since I am already getting 5k for first month charges + 5k second + 15k third month + 10k for $1000 total spend in first three months; then no codes can be applied. I have no idea where the 35k came from, since the online app showed 15k for $1000 spend. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

    Does anyone knows how long for the points to actually get posted in the account after reaching the spending criteria?

    I was able to get them to apply the code to my new card last month. The points didn't post after I made the spend, so I called and asked about it. The MR rep told me that they would not be crediting the 75K because I was not targetted. I then asked for a supervisor who took care of it instantly. 75K posted! Thank you.
