Last Chance For AmEx MB Cards

Thanks to reader Charlie Lux (who came out to visit me for dinner a few months ago) in alerting me to the end of the Mercedes-Benz card from American Express. Who knows what card this will become? The article can be found here on frequent miler. This is certainly a sad day for me because I have become accustomed to getting $200 in MB schwag every year! I was even considering getting the Credit version in the hopes of upgrading the card to another MB Platinum with $100 in MB stuff.

If you haven’t gotten the Charge or Credit version of the card for 60k and 10k  respectively then I would go ahead and take advantage before the card goes away in Jan 2019!

Then go ahead and buy a new Benz for some sweet 5x points, it is entirely possible to buy a whole car on an AmEx Plat!

Thank You LCDR Lux for the great intel!

    Derp, Will you please clarify if current AMEX Platinum card holders can get the sign up bonus for either MB card? Per Dr. of Credit, it doesn’t look like it but unsure about AU on my account.
    I have the regular AMEX Platinum, am active duty, my wife is an AU on my Platinum, so looking to get the MB bonus on one or both cards for one or both of us. So, 1-4 MB cards eventually for us.

      I had no problem getting the bonus 3 years ago despite bing a regular amex plat holder. However that language was not in there, and they had considered the MB card a completely separate product. Still worth doing just for another $200 uber and another $200 in flight credit. Not sure if the bnus will hit because of this extra wording!
