There is no American Express Business Platinum Card 100k point bonus. The American Express Business Platinum Card currently offers an initial bonus of 85,000 points points for spending $15,000 within 3 months of opening your account.
But at one time, there were 100,000 point initial bonus offers for both the American Express Platinum card and the American Express Business Platinum Card. They’re expired now, though. The American Express Business Platinum Card 100k bonus was a targeted offer, which means you only would’ve seen it if Amex selected you.
Here’s what you’ll get instead of an American Express Business Platinum Card 100k bonus:
85,000 points points for spending $15,000 in your first 3 months.
5x points on eligible purchases in 5 select business categories, up to 80,000 bonus points per category, all within the first 3 months of card membership.
The points will be credited to your account 8-12 weeks after you meet the spending threshold.
Your account can’t be canceled or past due when Amex posts your points, or you won’t get your bonus.
You can only get one initial bonus per card, but additional card members can help meet the spending requirements.
You can’t get the American Express Business Platinum Card 100k point bonus because it doesn’t exist. But the 85,000 points bonus is pretty close. To get the entire bonus, you have to spend $15,000 on purchases in 3 months. And the bonus is only worth it if that’s a natural fit for your business’ spending patterns.

American Express Points Value by Redemption Method
Tips for Maximizing the Value of American Express Points
Redeem Points for Travel.
American Express points are worth the most when redeemed for travel.
Redeem American Express points regularly.
American Express points do not expire due to account inactivity, but stockpiling points does put you at risk of rewards devaluation. Plus, you won't get to enjoy the fruits of your spending if you don't redeem.
Keep your account in good standing.
If American Express closes your account because of a failure to pay the bill or fraudulent activity, you'll lose any unredeemed points you have saved. And if you pay late, you might have to pay a fee to get back the points from that billing period.
Redeem before closing your account.
Any points you don't redeem before closing your account will be lost, unless you keep another American Express credit card account open.
