I asked to be matched since I applied less than 30 days ago and they told me to get bent.

Oh well!

its interesting that you can have multiple starwood cards open at the same time without having to move credit lines to close them out
are there any other CC out there that let you keep multiple cards open??
am i understanding this correctly? or did I miss something

You called for courtesy points and they didn't award you any?
For the past few months I have been calling to get courtesy points. I usually recieve between 1-3k

When applying for multiple Amex SPG, should I include my SPG # on the application or leave it blank... and then call Amex once approved to update it with my SPG # ?

Is asking to be matched to a better offer considered courtesy points? I'm not sure

Try both SM and phone for the 5k match, only if these options fail, try for the lower amount of courtesy points.  I am also waiting on SM response to same request, opened new SPG cards last month, trying for match.

Thinking that 2 Ink Bolds ( 75,000 - 100,000 pts.) may be better than 2 SPGs (60,000) today?

Depends on what you wanna do with the points.
But as you read Dan's nice post on the main site today, you might want to reconsider.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Seriously, has anyone ever tried doing 2 SPG biz cards at the same time?
Part of the vast right wing conspiracy.
