I canceled my American Express Business Platinum Card about 18 months after the annual fee came due and after I had already earned the 100K sign-up offer and an additional 10K for enrolling in the extended payment option (though of course I never took advantage of the benefit). I later signed up for the personal Platinum Card to earn another 100K points. A few months later, I received both an email and letter inviting me to enroll in the extended payment option…but with no bonus incentive. Two months after that, I was again reminded that I could opt in to the extended payment option, again with no incentive. I was not interested since I don’t actually use the feature and was holding out hope for a 10K sign-up bonus. Well, it finally arrived today. Below is a copy of the email offer received from AmEx:
To be eligible to earn Membership Rewards® points, you must be enrolled in the Membership Rewards® program at the time of enrollment in the Extended Payment Option feature. Only one offer per Card account is permitted, and points will be credited to your program account within 6-8 weeks after your Extended Payment Option enrollment is approved. Maximum 10,000 points per account.
