or perhaps a merge of the wiki here onto the dansdeals.com links thread?

Good idea!

PRG 50K is dead.
Annual fee column should probably differentiate between offers that have it waived the first year or not.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

PRG is listed as 25k. The 50k link is the DDF for it may come alive again.

Can you see the purple easily?
I think a different color may be easier for the eyes to catch.

Next time you update the wiki - under the "benefits" column,  you can add the $200 credit + GE to the amex plat.
(Now it only shows it by the MB plat.)

I'm not if the business plat also has those 2 benefits,  but I would assume so. . .

Don't mean to sound rude, but I am not the owner and sole editor of the wiki. Anyone can edit it, so its a bit unfair to single someone out to update the wiki. It is time consuming for me too, and there also others who have contributed greatly and are willing to continue to contribute. Without them the wiki would still look mostly empty. In  fact, every wiki has to be a collaboration of various DDF'ers or else it doomed to fail.

If you have no idea how to update it yourself, AND you have tried, only then should you request that someone, ANYONE, to update the wiki. Again, I don't mean to be rude, nor do I mean to single you out from the many DDF'ers that have requested for me to personally update wikis.

Thanks for understanding.

If you take the time to actually read the wiki under edit mode it's pretty straightforward, albeit time consuming, however, to just add one benefit should take 30 seconds and anyone can do it.

What's GE?

You're 100% right.

I was on mobile and couldn't edit.

 I directed the question at you bec I thought maybe you had a reason for leaving it out the first time around.
