In above picture you can clearly see that Amex Platinum is in fact generating 5x on a MileagePlus X (MPX) purchase. It can take quite some while before you get your 5x and that might be one reason why this deal isn’t being noticed. On 7th of August I purchased $25 Amazon gift card but I had to wait till 21st of August for 5x to show up in MR statement page.
That said, PRG should also earn 3x on MPX. While I don’t have first hand experience of 3x earning, I think it is fair to trust DP of 3x earning.

For a while now I’ve seen scattered reddit DPs of 3x and 5x MR earning on MPX for PRG and Platinum cards respectively. At first I thought these were false DPs but the repetitive occurrence of these DPs across multiple platforms hints otherwise. However, the issue with these reddit DPs is that I can’t find them anymore. I suspect they’ve been deleted and I now feel that I’ve been too unwise to not screenshot them.
I recall a recent DP claimed 5x earning on Schwab platinum and it actually had proof to back up the claim. Before making this post I went over my reddit “saved” post history and I couldn’t find the said comment anymore. Anyhow, for now following is what we have:
- On June 25th 2017, a reddit user claimed that he earned 3x on PRG.
I’ll add more when/if I can find some of the other one I’m referring to.
