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.
The steps are:
- Snap a photo of your Platinum charge card
- Share the photo on Instagram with the #AmexPlatinum hashtag
- 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:
View this post on Instagram
“Find different perspectives to create unique and unexpected angles” “Embrace negative space so your subject stands out more” Or, you know, just grab whatever you have around you to block your name and CVV and post a photo of your Amex Platinum Charge card to Instagram to get 8,000 Membership Rewards points (5,000 miles). Tag with #amexplatinum and remember to send a screenshot of your post to [email protected] with your name and card number. Good thing there’s no bonus points for aesthetics #AmexPlatinum #modernart #socialcommentary #negativespace
Bonus points for anyone who manages to outmodern my modern art masterpiece as depicted above.
The terms and conditions of this promotion can be found below:
| Offer is only applicable for Platinum Members holding the Platinum Card® issued in Singapore.Offer period is from 28 June 2019 – 31 July 2019 (“Promotion Period”).|
Each Platinum Charge Account will get to enjoy a 8000 Membership Rewards® bonus (“Gift”) according to the following instructions, during the Promotion Period:
1. Snap a photo of your Platinum Card in your favourite setting.

3. Email a screenshot of your Instagram post to [email protected] with your name and Card number.
4. Receive 8,000 Membership Rewards points in your account within 6 weeks after Promotion Period.
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.
