I have an update on the American Express Rewards Premier offer. Apparently this offer was targeted for Columbia University graduates. Their offer was for 50,000 Membership Reward points after $500 spend in 3 months and no annual fee for 2 years.
My wife had applied and was approved through the link and so she called and asked American Express what signup bonus she received. The informed her that they only gave her 10,000 Membership Rewards points and no annual fee for 1 year.
Due to this – and after reading Frugal Travel Guy’s post – we asked them about bonus offer #5985– 75,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $1,000 in the first three months and no fee for the first year.
After some initial “I don’t see this offer” etc, they ended up granting us that offer since we had not received any real sign up bonus.
If you applied for the link above, you may want to try and call them to confirm what offer you were given and try to bargain a little – as always, YMMV.
