How to get invited for Amex platinum

I’ve heard they have terrific benefits.

I do have chase sapphire reserve already.

So, looking for cards with great travel benefits.

Edit: I know I can apply, but my credit score isn’t that great. Like 720 or something. I was thinking if they invite me that’d be great instead of facing a credit denial

    What are these benefits that you don't have already with CSR?

      I’ve heard there’s better rewards/travel points. As in for same dollar spend, your reward is even more. Don’t have all the details.

      Don’t do it cuz you heard it’s better. There’s pretty clear analysis behind these things, look it up before dropping $550 a year on a new card that only works at half the places you go to.

      Apply for the Platinum Schwab card. Get your bonus. Cash out to Schwab. Centurion lounge access is dope

    I bet if you waste enough money, they'll get in touch.

      I did. I’ve consistently spent over 10k every month in the last one year and yet I was still not contacted.

      I have a regular Amex and my credit score is pretty high. I keep getting this platinum invite but I keep throwing it in trash. I'd rather buy an apple watch with that money! 🤣
      Do you have regular Amex? I feel that got me in their radar.

    Yep promotion offer is great. Try calling up to see if they'll give it to you.

    I got 150k points for signing up

    Worst case that means I got 1k net best case around 2k net

      150K offer for Amex plat? Highest I've heard of is 100K. 150K MR is easily worth $2250, and could have $3000 value. So that's hella good sign up offer.

    Not worth it, Chase CSR is better!

      Each have strength and weaknesses. Amex Plat is better for airlines, sometimes better for hotels booked through them, concierge is much better, dispute process and customer service.

    But is it better than Sapphire Reserve?

      Depends. It’s better for travel if you fly and use hotels. Lots of nice perks for those. I recently got first class upgrades and got my room upgraded to a suite, which I think was related to Amex Platinum or it could’ve just been luck

    I got some other no annual fee Amex card and and received an invite for platinum almost immediately after that. You just need to get on their radar.
