Earn up to 9,000 Membership Rewards Bonus Points (from Minimum $1500 Spend) @ American Express


I received an email from Amex -

  1. Bonus 2000 points for spending $1500, by 15th August 2021
  2. For spend above $1,501 until 15 August 2021, you’ll earn 2 bonus points per $1 spent, up to 7,000 bonus points

This is available on my Amex Platinum Edge but not Amex Qantas card.

Membership Rewards® Bonus Points and eligibility: Offer is valid for payments made online, in-app, via phone or in-person at any merchant that accepts American Express.

    Mine is $7500 spend for 9000 points.

    No thank you


      Mine too. And so would need an average spend of $3750 per month for 2 months, for a relatively small reward.
      Maybe I could do it in discounted Coles Gift MasterCards! hehe!

        Not worth it haha. Years ago, DJs had a homewares offer where all you had to do was buy anything from their Homewares department and you'd get 5000 points. $2.95 espresso spoon for 5004 points is a much better prospect than this offer.


          oh nice yea that is better


    Nothing on my plat charge

    Mine is spend 9k for 9k points. Ookkkaayyyy


    I received this offer ($1500 spend for initial 2000 points) on my Essentials card.


      Same on my DJ card. Just $1,500 for 2,000 with nothing beyond that.


        Apologies, I should have been clearer! I did receive the 2 points beyond $1500 spend up to 9000 points total, but was referencing the initial spend amount required, as others seem to be getting awfully high spend targets! Sorry for any confusion :).


    Mine is 9000 points for $7500 of spend and the double points up to 9000 points for spend over $7501. $1619.10 already spent on Coles prepaid Mastercards today.


      Got the same as you, already spent $6500

      Also, can you see it in the offers saved section?


        nope.. but if you try to activate it again, it tells you its already active.


        No, I can't see it either, however just like @skinny, if I try to reactivate it says it is already active.


    I got (total 15,500 points) for a Gold Amex:

    Spend $4,500 by 15 August 2021 and receive 5,000
    For spend above $4,501 until 15 August 2021, you’ll earn 3 bonus points per $1 spent, up to 10,500 bonus points

    *Spend on Additional Cards not included. The first $4,500 spend does not earn 3 bonus points per $1.
    *The 3 extra Bonus Points will be applied to your Card’s base earn.


    Got 12,500 points offer on the Edge.
    Spend $1,500 to get 2000 bonus and then 3 points per dollar over $1,501 up to 10,500 bonus points.
    Assumed it was because I haven't used my card lately but probably not as targeted as I thought!

    I actually need the Amex points ASAP for a redemption, just realised the wording says that the points will be allocated after the end of the promotional period - ie August. Has anyone ever used a similar offer and gotten the bonus points before the end of the promotion?

    Can confirm that the bonus points post as soon as you reach the target amount.
