American Express Platinum card sign-up – 25,000 Membership Rewards points, first annual fee waived and additional authorized user fee waived

Posted on July 26, 2014 by in American Express Membership Rewards

American Express is currently offering Ameriprise customers its Platinum card sign-up with 25,000 Membership Rewards points after $3,000 spend in the first 3 months, plus the first year fee waived (saving $450) plus the additional authorized user fee waived (saving a further $175).

Apply here.

We reviewed the card favorably recently, and that was with the 40,000 Membership Rewards points bonus (annual fee and additional authorized user fee not waived), so the current Ameriprise sign-up is a no-brainer too!

This sign-up states it's for Ameriprise customers, but you should be able to get the card even if you aren't a customer. Take screenshots when signing up, just in case.

Terms and Conditions

5,000 Membership Rewards points
