Amex Business Platinum 250K Offer

We didn't think Amex could get any crazy with their offers, but they did. The offer is being sent out via USPS. I know you will be checking the delivery alert emails very closely over the next few weeks. The offer has a lot of details.

It is possible to get a 250K offer with a 10K authorized user by calling in. People were getting over the phone to take advantage of the 180k Amex Gold Business offer. It is a radio station.
