Our Verdict

This offer is being reported by some r/churning members as appearing when they click the referral link incognito. I don’t see it on a few links I checked, YMMV.

We’ve seen 110,000 point offer that required $25,000 in spend on a non-referral offer; this one is for less spend and gives your friend the referrer credit – might be the best offer we’ve ever seen. Some are also able to get 100,000 after $10,000 in spend via the call in method.

Might be worth waiting a few days  to see how the ‘exciting offers’ on Business Platinum pans out. As always you can read more about American Express cards here.
