Update 3/27/21: Looks like this deal will be ending on 4/11/21. Although this deal has been available for years, so good chance it just gets auto extended
Update 11/4/20: Some people also seeing this offer when logged in, not to be confused with the NLL offer which has $15,000 in spend.
Update 6 (6/17/2020): This is working again for many readers as per comments. Remember the Business Platinum also gets some additional credits currently.
Update 5 (12/14): Seems like this is being more freely offered again with a number of readers confirming they were able to get this deal. Of particular interest is that some readers called in, were told the offer was not available only to be called back at a later time and offered the deal (‘call back offer’). As always this is highly YMMV.
Update 4 (07/30): Some reps are stating that this offer will expire on July 31st, 2018. I suspect this isn’t the case as this method has worked since 2014 but just warning readers in case this is accurate. The deal doesn’t really get better than this so might as well get it now if you can.
Update 2: Two readers have reported recent success, so this might be possible to do again. As always YMMV.
Update: It looks like this might no longer work. If you try and are successful (or unsuccessful) then please let us know in the comments section. Also don’t forget to follow us on twitter so you’re the first to hear about deals like this in the future.
This post was originally published on April 8th, 2014. We’re republishing it as a number of other bloggers have recently posted about the standard 40,000 point offer. This is because it’s near the end of the year and the airline credit posts on a calendar year, meaning if you apply now it’s possible to get it once this year and then again starting in January.
- Call 855-407-0599 or 1-800-971-6736 (or 1-800-669-6736 if that doesn’t work)
- Choose option 1, “apply for a new card”
- You’ll be redirected to a customer service representative.
- You should be offered a 100,000 point business Platinum offer. In some cases you’ll need to allude to previously having received a mailer that has now expired.
You should be able to do this even if you haven’t received this offer before, but some reps might not extend the courtesy to you. If this happens, call back and try again another time and hope you get a different representative.
This is basically as good of a deal as this card offers. The $595 annual fee can be off putting but for most people the benefits make up for that. If you value membership rewards points at 1¢ per point then this bonus is worth $1,000.
