Check out some of the best special offers we’ve been able to find on CardMatch, plus how to use it to your advantage.
When you check for credit card offers on CardMatch, you won’t suffer a hard pull to your credit. You will, however, be able to view a list of personalized card offers – helping you get a better idea of which cards you can be approved for. Even better, you can occasionally snag a targeted sign-up bonus offer for a higher amount of points or cash back.
For instance, we’ve recently found offers for up to 125,000 Membership Rewards points (after $5,000 spend in the first three months) on The Platinum Card® from American Express and up to 75,000 Membership Rewards points (after $4,000 spend in the first three months) on the American Express® Gold Card.

What is CardMatch?
CardMatch is a service offered by CreditCards.com, designed to match users seeking credit cards with personalized offers for them. The platform combines prequalified credit card offers – which can boost your chance of approval – targeted introductory bonuses and interest rates and suggested cards based on your credit profile.
All of these recommendations and matches are determined by a soft pull to your credit – meaning there is no effect to your score.
CardMatch includes card offers from most major issuers – including American Express, Citi and Credit One.
Earn up to 125,000 points with the Amex Platinum
Targeted offers via CardMatch vary from person to person, so you might not be able to find the exact offers detailed below.
Nevertheless, it is worth checking your matches for great deals like this one – which we found on Oct. 1, 2020.
Typically, the Amex Platinum offers 75,000 points if you spend $5,000 in the first six months. But with the special targeted offer above, you can score 125,000 points for spending the same $5,000 in the first three months.
Earn up to 75,000 points with the Amex Gold
Like with the Amex Platinum offer, you might not get this same bonus when you check your CardMatch offers. But we found a great deal on the American Express Gold card on Oct. 1, 2020.
This introductory bonus offers 75,000 points for spending $4,000 in the first three months, which doubles the card’s standard offer.
Earn up to 45,000 with the Amex Green
We originally identified this offer on Nov. 13, 2019, and when we checked on Oct. 1, 2020, it was still available. American Express® Green Card offers 45,000 points for spending $2,000 in the first three months instead of the card’s standard offer of 30,000 points.
As with other offers on CardMatch, you might not get these exact terms.
Earn up to 150,000 with Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card
Avid travelers might find some excellent offers on CardMatch as well. On Oct. 1, 2020, we came across an enhanced 150,000 points bonus for spending $3,000 within the first three months on Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card. This is 25,000 points more than what the card regularly offers.

Since CardMatch offers are personalized to every user, you might not get the same terms.
Other offers on CardMatch
While these are some of the more valuable offers we’ve found on the platform lately, they are just a selection of the great deals you can find. When we checked on Oct. 1, 2020, we also snagged an increased bonus on the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express and Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express.
When you view your matched offers on CardMatch, look out for a “special offer” flag on each card.
It’s important to note that CardMatch combines both prequalified credit card offers and matches tailored to you. Not all the cards listed will be prequalified. Make sure you see a “prequalified” flag before assuming it’s a certain kind of offer.
How to check for targeted offers on CardMatch
The CardMatch platform is incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is provide basic information including your name, address and the last four digits of your Social Security number. You can also opt to receive more information about future card offers, how to view your credit score and top news in the credit card world.
