Get 2,000 extra Membership Rewards Points/ JPMiles on taking an Amex referral (India only)

Back in November, American Express India launched a member-get-member promotion, where the referrer and referred new cardholder are both going to get bonus points/miles for signing on for a new American Express Credit Card via this program.


Under the program, the referrer will get 3,000 extra JPMiles if they hold the Jet Amex, and 3,000 extra Membership Reward points if they have the Amex Gold Charge Card/Platinum Travel Card/Platinum Reserve Credit Card. A maximum of 5 referrals would be awarded, and you can submit your referrals all the way uptil October 2014. Self nominations do not count.

The Referred Member will, on successfully getting an Amex Jet/Platinum Travel/Platinum Reserve Credit Card via the referral scheme, get 2,000 MR/JPMiles within 6-8 weeks. The detailed T&C are here.

So, if you’re interested in getting your friends to sign-up for the card, here is an opportunity to get both of you a bonus on sign-up. Not the best Amex referral schemes in my opinion, since in the past Amex has run a referral program on LinkedIn a couple of times where they would give out even 10,000 MR for successful applications, and a discount to the person at the receiving end. Anyhow, they are giving bonus points now instead of discounts it seems.

If you’d like help with a referral from my side, please drop me a line at . I appreciate your references.

  1. Hi AJ, Amex started offering personal cards (all type) for 1st year free and 50% from 2nd year onwards for Corporates including mine, however, it would be without welcome bonuses. I have applied for Gold card as I am not sure how much I’ll be able to use other cards in Hyderabad as acceptability is still a issue. Gold seems to be easy to rack up MR.
