Can anybody advise me on the following;

I took out an Amex Platinum credit card following the link from with the expectation of 5% for the first three months and then after 1.25%. A year later I discover a £300 membership fee from Amex with reference to the same card. I contacted Amex regards this and it turns out this is not the same card as I intended to apply for back in feb 2011? However this are is under the same name (Platinum)? I know I wouldn't have applied for any other card as I simply followed the link from Martin's website the same way I have for my other cards (successfully I at that). Is there really more than one Amex Platinum? Amex have agreed to credit this years £300 however not the £300 from 2011. Can someone tell me if there's a way to retrieve that? Also the purchases we've paid for on this card only amount in points so cash wise no more than 2x £25 M&S vouchers for about £12-14k spend! I'd appreciate any sound advice.
