Even if I'm currently holding a SPG Bus card I can do this?

Since I applied for the 25k SPG less than a month ago, can I request a match since it's a public offer?

Amex and matching is dead AFAIK, but maybe that's just for MR cards and with SPG you might get lucky. Give it a shot, what have ya got to lose?

Tomorrow :)
YAY!
Any idea how long this promo will last for?
Also, if I have a personal now would I be a fool for trying to get ANOTHER one? i guess i'll go for the business one but do u guys think i should leave out my SPG #? (I would assume not since it is a diff product)

What if they automatically link your account? wouldn't it be safer to open a new account for the bonus and then merge them later?

I'm just trying to figure out the chochma of this game. if you leave the United # blank you risk them automatically linking your account, so I assumed that it can happen with SPG # too
but i sure do trust Dan!!!  8)

Part of the chochma is that it isn't one size fits all and while something works one way in one situation it might work differently in another situation.
