AMEX Platinum Charge offering 8,000 Membership Rewards points for a card photo

Oh snap.

From now till 31 July 2019, AMEX Platinum Charge cardholders can get 8,000 MR points (equivalent to 5,000 miles) simply by uploading a photo of their Platinum Card on Instagram.

Share Your Platinum Moments

The steps are:

  1. Snap a photo of your Platinum charge card
  2. Share the photo on Instagram with the #AmexPlatinum hashtag
  3. Send a screenshot of the post to [email protected] with your name and card number

If you’ve complied with all the steps, you’ll receive the 8,000 MR points within 6 weeks. This offer is limited to a maximum of one gift per Platinum account, so even if you have two supplementary cards, you’ll only get a maximum of of 8,000 MR points.

Guard your privacy

Given that you need to take a photo of your AMEX Platinum Charge card, I imagine some may be concerned about privacy. Remember that your card number is on the back, so it’s not like someone could take your details and go on a shopping spree (I wonder if there’ll be any geniuses sending in the back side of the card, but you never know…)

That said, it’s probably best practice to obscure your name and CVV number. Kind of like this:

It sounds a bit like the start to a Nigerian Prince scam (“send me a photo of your credit card and you shall become the next prince of Muchscamistan”), but the offer is legit and a couple minutes’ work for 5,000 miles is a great deal in my book.
