American Express Membership Rewards program is a fantastic program that allows you to do a lot of things, but most importantly transfer your points to dozens of airline and hotel partners. Good 50,000-point offers are not too rare for this program–what rare is a tiny $1,000 spend requirement: they usually want you to spend $5-10K in order to get this bonus. If you want it, I suggest acting quickly, because the offer won’t stay long. The offer worked for me at 10:45 PM Eastern, but unfortunately I’m not eligible since I received the Platinum card just 1.5 months ago. If you don’t see the offer, try using Incognito option in Chrome, or In-Private in Explorer.
