American Express has been on a roll lately. Late last year, we saw a whopping 100,000 points welcome offer on the personal version of the Platinum card. Surprisingly, that offer has stuck around for much longer than many expected, which is great news. Moreover, Amex also upped their game further by coming up with new card offers that have elevated points bonuses and an extra $200 in statement credits on many personal cards. Similarly, we’re seeing a welcome bonus of 110,000 points on the business version of the Platinum card as well.

A welcome bonus of 110,000 points after you spend $15k

While browsing the Amex website in incognito mode, I came across this elevated offer of 110,000 Membership Rewards points.

You will earn a welcome bonus of 110,000 Membership Rewards points on the Business Platinum Card after you spend $15,000 in the first 3 months. Moreover, Amex will also offer you the 5x points promo if you apply via this offer. You will earn 5 points per dollar spent in the first three months on the following categories:

  • Shipping
  • Wireless
  • Advertising in select media
  • Office supply stores
  • Gas

You can earn a maximum of 80,000 bonus points per category, making it 500,000 points in total in addition to the 110,000 points bonus.


(After clicking on the link above, you may see a bonus of 85,000 points. In that case, try opening the link again in incognito/private browsing mode. I was able to see the 110,000 points offer in incognito mode consistently)


If you have legitimate business spend coming up, then this is a fantastic offer. In addition to the 5x points offer, you’ll also earn many of the standard benefits that come with the Business Platinum Card. We don’t know a specific end date for this 110,000 points offer yet, so it could end any time soon without notice.

In addition to the welcome bonus, you’ll also get some of the other awesome benefits that the card offers already:

  • $200 Airline Fee Credit
  • 35% Bonus on Pay with Points with your airline of choice
  • 5x points on flights and hotels booked via Amextravel.com
  • Centurion Lounge Access and Priority Pass Select Membership
  • $200 Dell credit
  • Fine Hotels and Resorts Program
  • Complimentary Hilton Honors Gold Elite Status
  • Complimentary Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite Status
  • Deals and discounts via the International Airline Program
