Last week I read on the blog View from the Wing that some people were getting pretty nice offers for a few select American Express credit cards. This is by using the CardMatch Tool through creditcards.com. Sometimes this tool is able to give better targeted offers after you enter your name, address, and last four digits of your social security offer. I personally went through the process (they do not do a hard pull on your credit so I figured why not!), and unfortunately did not see any of these potentially better offers. I do have a decent amount of Amex cards and typically do not see these “better” offers through CardMatch so I was not surprised.
These are the few select American Express offers that you might see that are better than the publicly available offer:
- The Platinum Card from American Express: Earn 100,000 points after you spend $3,000 on the card within the first three months. Currently, the best publicly available offer for this card is 40,000 points. Although, many times Amex sends out direct mailing to targeted customers with the 100,000 point offer.
- American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card: Earn 50,000 points after you spend $1,000 on the card within the first three months. This is twice the amount of the best publicly available offer where you’ll only earn 25,000 points which has been the norm for quite some time. 50,000 points is a great offer for the card, especially now that it comes with a $100 airline statement credit.
- Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express: Earn 50,000 miles after you spend $1,000 on the card within the first three months + $50 statement credit on a Delta purchase within the first three months. This is a very similar to the limited time offer that ended June 30th. Now, the publicly available offer has dropped to 30,000 points.
Overall, these are three great offers if you are eligible. As I mentioned above, I was not able to see these offers or actually any other “enhanced” offers through the CardMatch Tool, but your experience might differ. I do already have the Gold Delta SkyMiles card, but have never been a cardmember for the other two. Remember, there is no hard pull by putting your information in the tool and seeing what offers you are eligible for, just a hard pull once you apply for a certain offer. This will just be a soft pull which is noted on your credit history, but not reported to lenders so will not impact your credit score.
Anyone able to see this better offers?
