Confirmed Bonus: Upgrade Amex Biz Gold to Amex Biz Platinum
Just a little heads up to anyone who has taken advantage of this awesome offer. I was targeted a few months ago to earn 50k Membership Rewards after $10k spend in 5 months if I upgraded my current Amex Biz Gold to Platinum. The issue was that I already had an Amex Biz Platinum. At the time I confirmed with customer service, but I was a bit iffy. Still, I went ahead and pulled the trigger and have been working toward the 50k bonus. Well I got some great news and it’s this: Confirmed bonus on upgrade from Amex Biz Gold to Amex Biz Platinum
First, I canceled my original Amex Biz Platinum because the annual had hit
I was read a long list of benefits, but wasn’t offered any sort of retention. I told the rep, who was SUPER friendly, that I had two of the same card and didn’t need two Plats. She saw that and proceeded. Then, with a lot of anxiety in her voice, said she needed to transfer me to another person, an Awards Specialist.
I get transferred
Basically I was told that the upgrade offer may be invalid because I had already received a Sign up Bonus for my first Amex Biz Platinum – NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I knew it was too good to be true – and she needed to speak to her boss. OH CRAP!
She came back on the phone and said it was, in fact, a completely different offer and no worries. She went ahead and cancelled my original Amex Biz Plat, kept the upgraded one open and assured me that once I hit the 10k spend, the 50k bonus would appear in my account and all would be good.
BYAWWWWW!!!!! Confirmed again!
In case you were wondering – here are my original terms
