  1. You mean until Sept 25, 2013 as the page indicates?

    Sadly this is the "original" offer earlier this year, and still no $120 annual fee waiver, so I'll continue to wait for 15K SPG + no fee, if possible :)

    Thanks for the tip

    1. Thanks Jerry, like you said this is the 'original' offer from earlier this year which made it a copy and paste and hence the old date was still in there mixed with the new date.

  2. I have been using this card for over 2 years now and love it. This is great card and well worth the $120 annual fee.

    21k sign-up bonus if you apply through referral link:


  3. You can wait to see if Amex will offer the 15K SPG bonus or alternatively sign up for the gold card (using this link) and get 20K MR points & convert to 10K SPG. Note that there is no fee for year #1.
