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 Discover.
Earn up to 150,000 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 July 1, 2021.
Currently, the Amex Platinum offers 100,000 points if you spend $6,000 in the first six months. But with the special targeted offer above, you can score 150,000 points for spending 6,000 in the first six months. Plus, with either of the offers, you’ll earn 10 points per dollar on eligible purchases at restaurants worldwide and when you Shop Small in the U.S. (up to $25,000 in combined purchases) during your first six months with the card.
Additionally, on July 16, 2021, we found an increased preapproved offer for the Amex Platinum: 150,000 points if you spend $6,000 in the first six months with the same 10-point boost on restaurant and Shop Small purchases as indicated above. Preapproved offers signal the best approval chances on CardMatch without a hard inquiry although approval is not guaranteed.
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 July 1, 2021.
This introductory bonus offers 75,000 points for spending $4,000 in the first three months, which doubles the card’s standard offer.
Earn $300 with the Blue Cash Preferred
On July 1, 2021, we also came across this offer on the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express: $300 in statement credits after you spend $3,000 in purchases within the first six months.
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. As of July 1, 2021, the 150,000-point bonus offer for spending $3,000 within the first three months on the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card was still available on CardMatch. This is 20,000 points more than what the card currently offers (130,000 points after you spend $2,000 in purchases within the first three months of card membership; limited time offer expires 8/25/2021).

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 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 and preapproved credit card offers and matches tailored to you. Not all the cards listed will be prequalified. Make sure you see a “prequalified” or “preapproved” flag before assuming it’s a certain kind of offer.
