Amex Platinum is offering 20K points if you sign up for their “pay over time” option. I called about something else and they offered at the end of the call. No downside, you can still pay in full as usual. Just activated the option. Figured I’d pass the easy points to y’all!

Definitely do it if targeted! And you can also un-enroll your card for Pay Over time and then re-enroll if targeted for the bonus again.

I just chatted and they confirmed this is targeted. They said I should get an email or see the offer in the banner online if I am eligible

Super helpful and sorry that I didn’t know it was targeted 🙏🏽 hope some of you guys get it!

I’ve had it before. They like to auto shift you into pay over time. Be careful!

You can un-enroll from pay over time if they auto enroll you.

Does this work for any other Amex cards?

Business and personal charge cards.

How do LMM/MM/UMM firms in Europe (London & EU) differ from NA in terms of WLB?

Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?
