We’ve covered credit and charge card sign-up deals here before, and American Express usually have some of the best in the UK market. They also offer enhanced bonuses when new members sign up from an existing member’s ‘referral.’ The process can be a little convoluted however, but the card issuer has now issued a links that you can use yourself to effectively ‘self-refer’.
The bonus for new members who are accepted for the Platinum Charge Card and who spend £2,000 on the card in the first three months of Cardmembership is currently 30,000 Membership Reward Points. However, members applying through the link below and meeting the eligibility criteria will receive an additional 5,000 Membership Reward Points to make a total of 35,000 points – on top of the 1 Point per Pound spent standard earning rate. That’s enough for two Economy return flights from London to Rome, subject to availability and relevant taxes, fees and charges – or a fairly wide selection of other travel rewards including miles conversions with Alitalia, British Airways, Cathay Pacific (Asia Miles), Delta, Emirates, Etihad, KLM, Iberia, SAS, Singapore and Virgin Atlantic.

The link goes to the special secure American Express sign-up page, and shows the full terms and conditions of Cardmembership and bonus earning requirements. The most important things to be aware of are that this is a chargecard with no monthly pre-set spending limit, and that the Platinum Card attracts an annual fee of £450. The offer is not available if you currently hold or have held any other Membership Rewards enrolled American Express Cards in the past 6 months.
Apart from the Membership Reward Points, the Platinum Card also offers members:
- Unlimited access to over 1,000 airport VIP lounges in 83 countries around the world.
- Worldwide travel insurance for you, your family, your Supplementary Cardmembers and their family.
- Car rental insurance.
- Starwood Preferred Guest Gold Membership.
- Club Carlson Gold Membership.
- Accor Hotels Le Club Platinum Membership.
Additional details relating to Cardmember benefits are available from the referral link above. For the purposes of clarity, all applications are entirely confidential between the applicant and American Express. The link is to a secure American Express webpage (check for the letters and characters https:// at the beginning of the web address once the page has loaded).
No personal, professional or financial details are ever available to the referrer, nor even any statistics revealing how many applications may have been made. In the interests of full disclosure, the only ‘evidence’ of a successful application having been made via the link is that a referrer’s bonus of 18,000 Membership Reward Points may be made to the referrer’s account in a maximum of five cases annually, when an application has been made via the link, the applicant has been accepted for Cardmembership and they have themselves achieved their 35,000 sign-up bonus. In all cases, the referrer’s bonus is generated entirely anonymously.
