American Express Miles Platinum Sign Up Bonus upped to 1,000 Reward Miles

This is the increased sign up bonus I mentioned about 2 or so weeks ago. Looks like Amex held off on releasing it so that it wouldn't come out the same week as their new Air Miles Reserve Card. Now it is here and the offer matches that of the Reserve Card which I find a little surprising they make it the same as outside of some the extra benefits that the Reserve Card offers this card is cheaper yet earns the same amount Air Miles Rewards Miles (Sign up bonus and earn rate). I still have to confirm this,  but apparently this level of sign up bonus for the Platinum Card will remain as standard from this point forward.

Here are the full details on this offer and the card:

Earn up to 1,000 Bonus AIR MILES® reward miles! Receive 500 Bonus reward miles upon first use of an approved Card, plus earn 500 Bonus reward miles after you spend $500 in your first three months of Card membership
• $65 annual fee waived for the first year
• Earn 1 reward mile for every $10 in Card purchases at AIR MILES®* Sponsors
• Earn 1 reward mile for every $10 in Card purchases at other eligible stand-alone grocery stores, gas stations, and drugstores in Canada
• Earn 1 reward mile for every $15 in Card purchases everywhere else
• More than 1000 rewards to choose from! Redeem for a wide range of rewards - everything from movie tickets to electronics, travel and more
• Shop at participating AIR MILES Sponsors across Canada with your American Express® AIR MILES®* Platinum Credit Card and show your AIR MILES®* Collector Card, and you can earn reward miles twice

  1. I tried purchasing something online with my newly paid American Express gift card but I got an error. Then I read online I need to verify my name and address on my gift card in order for the website to verify that it's an actual card. Where can I do this on the American Express website? Do I have to call them?
