Credit Card PLATINUM HOT Credit Card

This is Not a new method but with $100 from GreatCanadianRebates, this makes it worthwhile and very likely FREE for most people.


1 - Apply for American Express Business Platinum Card
Option 1 : GreatCanadian Rebate (Get $100 back via Paypal)
https://www.greatcanadianrebates.ca/det ... -Platinum/
(Advanced Trick: Apply for Spouse or Friend and have them refer you to Great Canadian Rebates. They will get $15 and you will get your $100.)

Option 2 : Apply Directly with American Express (You get your Welcome Bonus)
https://www.americanexpress.com/ca/en/c ... inum-card/


2 - You have 3 months to spend $ 7,000 (The counter starts when you are approved. )
(If you can't spend $7,000 in 3 months, consider giftcards that you can use later)

You would now have 50,000 points (Welcome Bonus) and 8,750 points (for spending $7,000)
for Total of 58,750 points.


3- Use the Points for a Statement Credit. You can use 58,750 points to receive an American Express Statement Credit
of $ 587.50 (And unlike the Gold Card or others, the Statement Credit can be on Anything, not just Travel expenses.)
+ $ 100 (Great Canadian Rebates)
= $ 687.50

The Annual Fee = $ 499.99

So you net: $ 187.51

Thank you Atephroll , I removed:

I honestly thought it was OK to ask for a referral but not OK to post a link.

It's not ok with AMEX either. Referrals must come from people you know.

I feel like this is the same with "amazing limited time sales" from airlines. The more you put this in the open that you know you are gaming the system/ knowing it is something that shouldn't be, the easier time they have not honoring it.

I don't understand how this is "Free"
You pay $499 to get that 75000 points, not to redeem.
Why would you even use that much point to use toward to statement? that's a waste man.

Once you get the Card, Refer your Spouse, Friend and RFD Colleagues.
Real bonus move, once you get it create a PLATINUM HOT DEALS THREAD on RFD and pretend this is something once-in-a-lifetime deal and hoping suckers will use your referee to earn 25K more points per

AMEX has been coming down hard on "gamers" (e.g. people who play these referral games, or manufactured spend), so all these tricks could potentially get the person banned from all AMEX products forever. AMEX also happens to be one of the best when it comes to travel rewards so risking a blacklist from them isn't really a good idea imo.

Also, I cry for anyone who actually wastes all those points on statement credit... Just get a cashback card then with 10% cash back or something.

Why bother with GCR? Just get an amex referral from someone and you get 75,000 MR + 8750 for min. spend = $837 statement credit - $499 = $338
