Agreed. It might even cause you to end up spending more ;)

Yup, 10K on a new card (esp a business card) in too short of a period is a sure-fire way of getting an F/R.

Then don't worry, they'll ask for your tax returns and possibly your bank statements and that will hopefully be the end of it.

Yes. You need to build trust with Amex before putting those charges on this card.

Can't decide if I should apply for this card or not! If C'V I get an F/R I don't think i'll pass...

Could you spend $2.5k a month in legit $100-300 charges?

Could you pay off your bill every time you hit $900-1000 in spending?

If you can answer yes to both of these questions I think you should go for it.

I don't agree, as I got F/R before I even spent money on the card.

Also if you aren't able to show Business income (tax return) it is very likely to get shut down.
I would differentiate a Biz F/R and a Personal F/R

From what you are saying the F/R will come after doing certain spending, in my case they F/R before I even got the card.

Sole prop is a business. I know many people who got FR'd. If they hadn't filed taxes, they just asked for bank statements, and at worst put a limit on them.

This could work.

But when you apply make sure you give the same info you will give by a F/R... Otherwise likely they will shut you down.

Have you read the FR thread? See how many people freak out about not having income?

And, yes, as was mentioned, the whole SP thing will garner greater scrutiny, rightfully so.

I'm suggesting that if she plays it that safe (call it over the top if you want to) then she can get $75k while (in all likelihood) flying under the f/r radar.

I'm not speaking to everyone reading this thread, I'm replying to a specific person with a specific concern.

i seem to recall that the actual  approval for the business gold has a strong chance of causing a fr... irrelevant of the spending afterwards.    is that not the case?

+10000

My F/R was before I even received the card in the mail

@AsherO - thats why I dont think your guidelines will help.

Also if you are not deff sure you could survive a biz F/R - I am not sure but it could be that all your accounts will be shut down.
(I am basing this on the fact that all your accounts are suspended during the F/R)

Post by: Yellow on June 21, 2012, 07:16:08 PM
Can't decide if I should apply for this card or not! If C'V I get an F/R I don't think i'll pass...
Then that's your answer.
Yeah, I'm gonna skip this one. Not worth the risk for me. (but the 75k bonus did make my mouth water a little bit  :P)

Anyone know if the FR process is different if it's done based on a suspicion of a biz account vs personal account? I passed a few yrs back, and would pass again based on family income, but I wouldn't want them delving too much into the details of the biz.

Also, they would only check family income, and not each spouse's income sep, correct?

If you put it down on the app as new it's one thing (bank docs might suffice), but if you wrote anything that makes it seem like you have an established business they'd want to see IRS filings for that business.

True.

My first F/R was for a SPG Biz I opened 5 years ago... They insisted that they need tax returns.

I didn't have, they shut me down... I at least got the sign up points :)

Considering the questions you're asking, I'd say it's very risky for you to apply for this card. I recommend not doing it unless you really don't care to lose all your Amex cards.

From the Amex platinum thread

I signed up for Mercedes Plat 50k after that new wording was added on left of application and just got 50K after $1K spend
I recently (after the T&C changed) opened a MB Plat. card after having a few of them in the last 12 months and i currently have a gold and zinc and i got the 50k bonus points.

there are no guarantees but you should be able to get both. IME they arent actively enforcing it. However, if you call or have an issue related to the bonus they will tell you that you're not eligible and that they can't help you.

you would be much better off doing 2 platinum cards with the 50k signup bonus under 2 diffrent buisniss names, (worked for me a few times). so you spent the same 10k toghether and you get 100k mr points plus the $200 airfare credit twice.

the link for the gold card is not working anymore, but i still think doing 2 of the platinum links with 2BM would still be a better deal beacuse this way you only have to spend 10k to get a total of 100MR points plus you could do the airline credit on both of them as well. plus no worrys on F/R on the platinum

Post by: Name Changed on October 10, 2012, 06:43:02 PM
I just got my 75k points today :D

I applied for this card about 3.5 months ago, and reached the spending after 5 weeks.

The points weren't pending... Every time I called the rep said it takes 6-8 weeks...

I called today, they told me that the reason I didn't get the points cuz I had a different bonus (5k for Biz Green) a few weeks earlier (I downgraded a Plat) and since that promo was before this 75K I'm not eligible.

As a "valuable" customer courtesy  they manually applied the points ;)

I got a 5k bonus after I downgraded a Plat card to a Green Card, after the first spend I got 5k MR - so that is considered a sign up bonus to make me ineligible for another with 12 months.

You should also consider whether you can manage the $10k spend requirement, and how you plan on doing that (some spend is more likely to trigger F/R than other spend).

Hey everyone-
 related question about MR points: i got the old business gold bonus of 50,000 miles for 5K spend (since i live in Israel and can't use the card locally - they absolutely kill you with forex fees, etc., i'm not too bummed about the 75K, because i'd have a real problem hitting 10K spend) - anyway, ran a total of about $5450 of charges, and about $715 of returns.
Today, they posted my 50K bonus points (the returns were a while ago, before they posted the points).
So, the question is, do i need to push another $250 of charges on the card to get to 5K after returns, or is it safe to move on? I have a minimum spend on another card i have to start working on...

thanks

They'll stay as they aren't tied to any one card but to the MR account.  The MR account is active as long ads you have one "MR" card.

I did an Amex 4BM last night for Business Gold Rewards, Starwood Business, Gold Delta Business and Premier Rewards Gold, and the immediate response was "Your Application is Pending. Please call us now." for the first 3. I called the number and provdied the tracking number and verified my information, and they told me I was approved for each of those 3. But for the 4th one, Premier Rewards Gold, the immediate response online was "Your application is pending further review" and it didn't provide a tracking number or say I should call up. When I check my card application status online, it shows "In Progress" and "We will notify you once your application has been processed, or if we need additional information." 

At this point, should I be calling up to inquire about the 4th application that is "pending review" or should I just wait. If I call up to inquire, and I don't even have a tracking number for this application, would I be drawing attention to the other 3 applications that were just approved, and possibly cause trouble for this one?

I did an Amex 4BM last night for Business Gold Rewards, Starwood Business, Gold Delta Business and Premier Rewards Gold, and the immediate response was "Your Application is Pending. Please call us now." for the first 3. I called the number and provdied the tracking number and verified my information, and they told me I was approved for each of those 3. But for the 4th one, Premier Rewards Gold, the immediate response online was "Your application is pending further review" and it didn't provide a tracking number or say I should call up. When I check my card application status online, it shows "In Progress" and "We will notify you once your application has been processed, or if we need additional information." 

At this point, should I be calling up to inquire about the 4th application that is "pending review" or should I just wait. If I call up to inquire, and I don't even have a tracking number for this application, would I be drawing attention to the other 3 applications that were just approved, and possibly cause trouble for this one?

Just got approved for all 4! Any reason I should check how many hard pulls they did, or is there nothing I can do about it anyway?

I just tried a 4BM with this card, MB plat, spg and delta. I got the same response for all 4 that they need to speak to me. I provided me with a ref # and number to call.

If i call back for each one separately will that trigger s pull for each app?

Also was this a result of my experian accont being frozen?

Ah, forgot that part.

No, I didn't freeze with AmEx.

I've never read a report of them pulling another bureau on their own or when asked.

I'd call to see what the hold up is. If it's because your EX is frozen, you're out of luck, and will need to a) give them the pin, or b) reapply after it's unfrozen.

If the hold up is simply due to the 4BM, I'd wait it out.

Seems like Amex is toughening up on a lot of sign up bonuses. I just met some spends that I had been working on for a while and after complaining that I did not receive the SU bonus, the replies were that I had these cards in the past

Most recently after doing a 3bm, I got denied on some of them for having too many cards. Does anyone know the " official" policy.

How many consumer/charge cards can one have?
How many consumer/credit cards can one have?
How many business/charge cards can one have?

Edit - there is a star there, but i jsut started a new app and put in sole proprietorship 1 employee, retail trade (i.e. ebay), and i am owner, bus revenue of 0-50K, and 3K a month spend. left tax id field blank.  Did that exact same set up for both my wife and myself and both were approved.

I did 4BM method yesterday and had to call to unfreeze my Experian account, I was approve for 3 instantly but the 4th card was the delta gold I applied using a invitation code which was addressed to someone else at my address (offer was 50k). They told me they can't approve unless they speak to that person who is not around.

MY options are to call and apply by phone or I can apply from an email offer I got today for 40k. The question is if they pulled my credit today (Monday) for the 3 cards this morning and they pull it again for the Delta tonight, will it count as a separate pull or as long is it is all on the same business day it is considered one pull????

Please advise i have an hr to apply if the later is the case.

Thanks

Question- If I apply for reg Business Gold, I would think I should have no problem applying the offer after the fact with my offer code.  Anyone disagree?

i dissagre, amex has been really strict abt bonuses, but dan does say that as long as u do it in the same day it sould be one pull so try the 50k over the phone then go online and do a 2bm

Just got an upgrade offer from BRG to Business Plat.

They'll give me 25K after first purchase (with no language of the new T&Cs).

The only downside is I don't want to lose my free first year of BRG (as it's my MR xfer key)...

One billing cycle closed since the downgrade and so far no charge.

I ended up with 3X 25k + 3X $200 + 2X $100 compensation for the inconvenience that the system generated a new card number  when I upgraded.

With Amex once they deny you for credit reasons. Usually the only way to get approved is to move credit over, else they will want to pull again.

Today I applied, and got approved, for the Business Gold Card but I jumped the gun and applied without doing my due diligence. (Let me tell ya, I engaged in some shameless fabrication on my app)

Does not activating the card look more suspicious at this point? Should I cancel it before they send the card to me?
I suppose I'm at risk for a FR either way. But in terms of damage control, what is the best course of action here?

Spend wisely and you should be ok. If you get FR you can always cancel preemptively...

The main site post says that you can mix a biz and consumer card for a 2bm.  I am just confirming this to be true, I thought that 2/3 bm's had to be the same (either biz or consumer).

It was 3BM SPG Biz, Delta 45K and BRG. I would PUTPAC , however it was for a female relative and I have had problems in the past pretending to be DW with AMEX. I wont make that mistake  again.

Below is the result, I would say EPIC FAIL >:(

Generally Amex is 1 pull even when mixing business and personal.
Do you guys have the PRG? If your eligible go for the 50K PRG sign up.  the Delta 45K is good if you use delta. If not, SPG's are probably the next best

Are you a member in all these mileage programs? I'm a little unsure of what to do. I have AA and SPG miles. No Avios or anything else. No MR points. Did you get 75,000 for each of the above?

My credit score is 770 and I just applied for my first 2 BM with chase three and a half weeks ago and was approved for both. Is the the 3 BM pushing it?

Are you trying to circumvent the 12 month rule? If yes, i don't believe that will help. You have to enter your own SSN in the business app as well.

With my wife we closed her cards in the FR as they wanted to see a tax return with biz name on it. I told them we didn't have that but our income is enough, but she said it needs to have the business name. She did say if we had used my wife's name as the business name then that may have been enough to pass the FR. They understood that it's an ebay business with not alot of revenue, so no business tax return, but they want to see the "biz" name.

It's definitely a YMMV situation, but FR risk inherently means that it may vary. And that's why you're correct to caution @teeboi123

FWIW when I did the BGR with 10K spend, I did some AP and some VR to make the 10K, and other large (>2500) purchases, and BH haven't had an issue.

Luck of the draw, many have used AP and VR on BGR and had no issues. It's up to you if you want to risk it.

"how long?" I said years, but only recently started thinking of it as a business.  (I have no idea what I put on the application!)  He told me about the bonus spending categories and their 100K/yr maximum and we laughed and he wished me the income to cover that much in bonus category spending.He seemed happy to note: I see you signed up under a very nice bonus (75K for 10K spending in 4 months),  All very pleasant and helpful.  Nice of AMEX, but my 'business' probably won't need much of their small business help.

Sounds like a mini FR

I had this call on two gold business card that I opened. It was before I even spent anything on the card. Seemed more like an introductory call than a financial review.

Yesterday applied for both for this and MB , submitted BGR 1st. Both were pending, today MB approved and BGR still pending.
I wonder why the MB got approved 1st? I much rather the BGR >:(

As the BGR is risky for an FR, what are correct and safe spending habits? Amounts and merchants. (gift cards, AP,VR?)

No one can give you exact numbers. Just take all the regular FR precautions and kick them up a notch.

Jut got my card from the 75K offer, along with a letter that they are attaching it to my existing MR number.

It's a different business though. Should I ask to separate the MR numbers or will it not make a difference (as far as getting the bonus due to having other BGR cards)?

Hi, I got the benefits from the amex platinum card & would like to downgrade it back to the gold card. Should I transfer out the points first? Will they take it away?
Thanks for your help

No need to transfer, they won't take it away if you downgrade to BGR.

If your trying to avoid a fee the BGR also costs after a year. You can probably downgrade lower/cheaper but that may affect your points.

BGR = $175 a year. Platinum = $450 - $200

personally for $75 I'd rather have the platinum and lounge access + loss protection

Depends which lounge. If it's a Delta, US Airways or American Lounge and you're flying that airline (except US AIR), use the platinum.

If it's a priority pass lounge then you might need the priority pass card with you.

But if your Platinum card is cancelled, your Priority Pass card will not work where they swipe it, vs the Platinum card which still grants AA, DL and US lounge entry even after its cancelled.

Hello,
 I have recently moved much of my business to American Express, I have been disappointed with my personal Gold card, I have been denied the 50,000 point sign up bonus due to some fine print that I must have missed while signing up.
I would like to confirm at this time that I will receive 75,000 bonus points on my Business Gold card after meeting a spending requirement of $5000 within 3 months. I am very concerned that American express will not honor this promotion also.
Thank You.

Just used the Icare lounge at CDG . Only showed priority pass . Which lounges except just Platinum card, and how would you have only Plat without priority club select as a perk of the card

IME I have always had priority club membership with my Plat card for at least the last 3 years

There are two different things. one is priority pass. Amex buys you a membership as a benefit of the card. THat benefit gets you into priority pass lounges, which you can look up on their mobile app, brochure or website.

Then there is lounge access from the platinum card. This benefit gets you in to Airline Lounges for US Airways (Even if you aren't flying on US Airways) and Delta and American lounges if you are flying on that airline and c an show your ticket. For these lounges you need to show your platinum card, and possibly also your ticket. You wouldn't need the priority pass card here, because these lounges are not priority pass lounges, but airline lounges.

My Dads business and my Mom got accepted.

So i signed up for the 75k BGR with 5k spend during the promo, i just wanted to make sure that the promo was linked to my account so i SM'ed.
 To my dismay they wrote me back that i had a business plat two weeks less than 12 months ago and that i'm not eligible for the bonus.
 (i knew that i had a BGR more than a year ago because i knew i never paid the AF what i forgot was that i had changed it to the plat for the 25k bonus a month before the end of the year and only canceled 6 weeks later!)

anyways my questions
1) is now that i called attention to it is there even a halfway decent chance that if i complete the spend that the points will post manually?

2)If i complete the spend do i have a decent chance of convincing a CSR to give me the points since it was almost a year ago on another business (if it isn't a decent chance than it's not worth hustling to make the spend as there is no VR out here in Colorado!)

3) can i still get a 25k bonus for upgrade to plat?

whaddya think?

1. Highly unlikely.

2. There have been plenty of successful reports posted on this thread to that effect. Can't guarantee anything, though.

By me even the regular dollar amount points haven't posted, after statement closing. I called and they said they'll post a few weeks after payment, including the bonus points.

Hey,

I have an Amex Business Gold that I got about a month ago. I have not gotten a limit on how much I can spend so far on this card. I have a bill for $50,000 coming up. Would it be an issue if I charge it to the card?

The balance will be paid up in full before the end of the month.

Thanks

Don't mean to divert the topic, but I got 2 cards when the deal hit for the 75K, I have not used any of them yet, couldn't meet it. Does anyone here know if it's possible to get Amex to extend me another 3 months to meet the threshold on those cards? I am only asking and not calling as I have many things I need to call CC companies about, if I can get somewhat of an answer here, I won't have to spend the time on the phone.

There are many many ways to meet spending thresholds rather easily these days. I don't believe they would extend another 3 months, maybe a few days, but not months.

I don't know dude I am not finding it so easy. I live in NY. I can't find anywhere nice easy simple steps to clearing thresholds quickly, I mean I use AP and cashed in with GW when it was available but other then that what else is easy? Sweet so it's worth it to call them?

Very true.  That insistance on pushing for more and more is IMHO probably related to why:

1. they killed the mint program
2. AMEX now makes us wait a year before opening a new card (of the same type as one we closed)
3. Chase has made recon into a recorded interrogation
4. and VRs aren't being restocked in some CVSes.

I think someone said before.....breathing can cause an FR.

I had applied through the 75 link and they only gave me 50

I sm'd and they told me to send the screenshot to HQ which I did mail

I got a letter back that they arent giving it to me because I wasn't linked to the 75 bonus...some garbage lingo like that

anything I can do to get the extra 25k?

Upgrade link should get you another 25K, but not sure if you can get the extra 25K they are saying you were not linked too.

Can someone tell me how it works with amex gold spending limits? I have the card for 3 months and have done about 6k worth of spending. I have a 50k bill to pay coming up. Will this trigger a FR? Will the charge even go through?

Call them up and tell them you need to pay a bill for 50K. See if they can raise your spending limit, at least temporarily.

@DoGo

Don't worry about the fee because you can simply cancel the card. Business cards don't have credit lines and, therefore, it will not hurt your credit score.

I am waiting for my 5K to post and will then cancel.

Don't worry about the fee because you can simply cancel the card. Business cards generally don't go on your personal CR and, therefore, it will not hurt your credit score.

FTFY. FYI, personal cards with open limits still affect your CS.

Post by: joey123 on September 17, 2013, 12:15:36 AM
What do you mean by open limits?

If a person for example has a business card with a 5K Credit limit and his bills are paid off etc...., will his credit score be neg affected?

I read on these forums once before that cancelling a business card will not affect your credit score because there is no credit line. I cannot locate it now, but was that incorrect? Moreover, a proof to this is that adding an A/U on a business account doesn't help the AU's credit score...

What am I missing?

Thanks

Business cards, with the exception of very few, never go on your CR to begin with so canceling them wouldn't hurt your score. That's why it does nothing to add an AU to a business account.
Open limits = charge cards.

My guess is you might still have issues. Whether you'll get the points after fighting for them (if they don't automatically post) is impossible to know.

Ok so time to play the stupid game....
For some reason I had written in my spreadsheet the BGR bonus was 3k in 3mo instead of 5k. Needless to say, when I called to confirm I reached the threshold, they said that's very nice that you've spent 3k, but that's not your threshold  :o , and of course, they were right.

I'm 4 weeks outside my 92 days - is there any chance that enough HUCA will get me a little extra time or is this a major dead end?

Also will I have to wait another 12 months after canceling to get this card bonus again, or is that only if you got the bonus in the past 12mo?

There are now free Amex MR cards! They are the personal cards: Amex EveryDay Credit Card and another with a small fee that gives you more back. Also, Amex limits you to how many personal cards you can have, so be careful and plan your card wallet/portfolio with some thought.

How could the hebrew name work? when they check my credit surely its not under that name.

Then they may out it on fraud  and pull a couple days later when i want them to pull that day for 2bm.

All Amex charge cards are one family and considered the same product.

ETA: If you can find an application page with the T&Cs saying "if you had the "Platinum Card" -vs this product- then you should be able to fight for the points.

If you apply for the Gold while having the Platinum you are disqualified from getting the bonus.
If you apply for both with the MBM I'll know in a couple of days (I did a 2BM and I just met the spending threshold on both of them)

No need for the Biz Gold (unless yours is 75K MR for $5k spend), but see below for decent deals:

http://pointscentric.com/2014/11/10/american-express-business-gold-rewards-signup-bonus-increased-to-50000-points/

Also, you can just call the # that's on the top of the application screen and they will give you the same offers (Ask about the 50k MR for $5k spend or the 75k MR for $10k spend and it shouldn't be an issue.  Push a little, they will give it to you).  Now, if someone can find a non-targeted 75k MR for $5k spend, that would be extra nice :)  It just doesn't seem to be worth an extra 25k in points to have to make double the spend (unless you would have already done so, anyways).

Can I apply for a second Amex Business card for a separate business with a different EIN but the same SSN and get a bonus? (Without waiting a year from when the first card is closed).
I just called AMEX to apply for a Business Platinum card; they told me I will not be eligible to get the bonus if I had the card in the past year. I did have the card in the past year, but I told them it’s for a different EIN number. They said it’d the same person and the bonus goes according to the person, so I will not get it twice.

 

Is this rep correct?

Looks like Amex is split testing this card offer! if you click on the link below you can get 3 offers:

-25K for $5,000 in first 3 months
-50K for $5,000 in first 3 months
-75K for $10,000 in first 3 months

Annual fee of $175 is waived on all off them!

So just open in Private till you get the offer you want!

What's my chances of having them match the 75k offer?

I got the platinum 100k/10k offer today.  I also applied for a targeted 50 and 75 (wasnt able to do simultaneously as I had issues with the 75 so did the 50 first and the 75 a couple minutes later).

My question is, they rejected my 75 bc that came after the 50 application as a duplicate.  Is there any way to get both the 50 and 75k application to go through?

Travis: Hi! Welcome to American Express chat. My name is Travis. How may I assist you?
you: Hello, I was looking to sign up for the Business gold card and saw a few days ago there was an offer for 75k points and today the same link comes up as only 50k and sometimes if reloaded even 25k is there a way you can help me
Travis: The offer changes online from time to time and I cannot change it for you. You can keep checking and apply for the card right away when you see it as the highest. You will see it in a couple of days.
you: when do you think i will see it again?
Travis: You will see it in a couple of days.
you: Do you have a date?
Travis: No, I do not have a specific date. Apologies for it.
you: But do you know for a fact that in the near future it will go up to 75k
Travis: Yes. I know it for a fact as these offers are run in a cyclic manner.
you: do you say before the end of the year
Travis: Yes, for sure.
Travis: In a 3-4 days.
you: sound good so you say for sure by 12-24 the deal will be back?
Travis: Yes. These deals are run on time to time. Please check it again.
you: do you have a specific link that i can go to for the offer
Travis: I am sorry. I can provide you the link of the running offer only.
you: okay
Travis: Anything else for me?
you: no, just the link for the offer thats avail, know
Travis: I do not have it as of now. Apologies for it.

Once applied I got the following msg: "Thank you for your application for The Business Gold Rewards Card® From American Express OPEN and any Additional Cards you may have requested. We have processed your application but we need more information before notifying you of our decision. Thank you for choosing American Express."

What should I do at this point? Call them or wait for them to call me? What kind of info they might need? I indicated that my business is a Solo Proprietorship operating under my Legal name.

I'm also planing to apply for AMEX Platinum Card and some AMEX Hotel Card. Any recommendations?

Post by: cholent on January 12, 2015, 07:46:12 PM
My theory is that they make a certain number of offers of each level available, and reload occasionally. I had no problem getting a 75k offer when the link was initially posted, or when ppl started seeing the 75ks again. There was a point in between where I only got 25k and 50k offers, and then it seemed to be mostly 25k. Last week I got a 75k in private browsing on Firefox pretty easily, but today seeing only 25 and 50k again.

this has probably been discussed but I seem to find conflicting evidence, to the best of your knowledge, when it says you have to wait 12 months for the signup bonus, does that mean from when you got the bonus? or when you closed the account?

"If you had this product in the last 12 months."
Sounds like from closing CMIIW

Business - 12 months from when you closed the card.
Personal - Once a lifetime

CMIIW Not sure it's enforced but when I was denied the SPG Bonus AMEX mentioned one year same product closing date not bonus date ,   or same product family meaning any MR card so I think if have had platinum biz in last 12 months,you woulnt get bonus for Gold

I hope someone proves me wrong !

If you get an error trying to log in using the link, it means your account is not eligible for the offer. The link works fine if your account is eligible. I had one account eligible, and one that wasn't.

What makes an account eligible, I have no idea.

Go for it

Did a 4BM under 2 different tax id's (2 and 2) and all approved. 2 were instant and 2 I had to call in to verify biz (which were both legit).
2 biz gold cards (50K each)
1 biz plat (40K)
1 delta biz (30K)

I tried 50+ times to get the 75K for this offer on gold and eventually gave up and went for 2 of the 50's. Also kind of relieved that I don't have to come up with another $5-10K spend in 3 months since as it is I have to come up with $16K.

Hope this helps.

IME in the past doing a biz gold and biz platinum 2BM for the same tax ID resulted in points posting from both.  Would be huge if you could hit 2 BRG and all points post, as that means you could likely do the same with other products (2 spg biz same day, 2 delta gold biz, etc).  Separate tax ids would be an excellent way of justifying to amex recon.

I tried applying online but it said offer expired even though letter says until March 26, 2015.  So if I apply by phone can I get the points again even within 12 months since there is no language preventing this?

Make sure you're using a RSVP code for a business, not a personal card. And that nobody used it online before you (if they used it by phone that's fine)

did a 2 bm and got approved for both 75k, whats the probability of getting both signup bonuses, I plan on hitting the spend threshold on both at the same time, I also set both cards to have the same statement closing date.

I don't think that the changing of the statement date helped me, being that I discoverd that you get the bonus as soon as you hit the spend threshold which was way before the closing date, and ended up getting the bonus on one card before even spending a dollar on the other. but in any case I got both signup bonuses for the 2 cards. @rots5 @dealfinder85  :) :) :)

Applied for the OBC this morning and was approved. The BRG has been on my radar and the phone rep confirmed that I can get the 75k offer. However the concern is will that result in 2 credit pulls or not!?

I've looked at this topic several times in the past with mixed data points.....any definitive (latest) data points would be appreciated.

I want to apply for my wife, and when I login with my wife's acct for the 75k it says error.
But with my acct it goes thru.
Can I delete my name and add my wife's?
It definitely is deletable, but will my wife ge the bonus?
Which link?

What's the latest on multiple Amex Platinum Business card bonuses? My wife got 2x 100k with 2 different EINs in the same year. I just got approved for my 2nd in a year with a different EIN than the first. All from mailed offers. Will I get 100k bonus? Curious to hear latest experiences.

Doesn't say anything in the offer about offer being limited to one per applicant (like for Amex personal cards).  Any particular lingo I should look out for?

Thanks. Nothing about 12 months in there.  And just called Amex to remind me about the offer I am entitled to, and the date by which I need to hit the spend.  Sounds, iy"H, like I'm set up for another bonus.  Now it's time to start spending! :-)

should not be another pull since application was the same day. Worse comes to worse if it does, you can always call to have them merged....

FYI - the 75k bonus seems to be geotargeted based on IP address. So, if you change your IP address enough times/to enough places, you should see it.

In my experience, CB most of the time wants to hear from the banks themselves to remove things on report. But I think that depends on the CB too. EX I heard have no problems removing duplicate pulls on same day if you call in. I had no luck doing that with TU.

It isn't this or that.  You can do multiple apps for the gold (75k) and plat (100-150k) at the same time.  At least that is what I do.

yes, by phone.

My husband got one code, and he has used it himself, so do you mean that I can use it too? I am afraid they can tell the code is not for me once I give them the code. Thanks!

I don't think ur right

Affect is a verb. It means to produce a change in or influence something.
Effect is a noun. It means a change that occurred.

Thanks. Nothing about 12 months in there.  And just called Amex to remind me about the offer I am entitled to, and the date by which I need to hit the spend.  Sounds, iy"H, like I'm set up for another bonus.  Now it's time to start spending! :-)
did you had one in the past 12 months?

Yes, unless you have a targeted offer with no 12 month wording.

Btw, if you manage to get the 75k from the wiki through going incognito, and you wait about 20 minutes it takes you out of the gold application and gives you more offers where you can get a 75k biz platinum offer too.

Sorry about the typos. My point was, if after logging in, an error message comes up, then that log in info won't work. There is no point in trying to log in with that info. again and again. If the offer comes up without the log in request, then it should work properly.

They're not. Even though the rep I spoke to claimed he didn't understand why Amex won't just match offers (probably was just being nice).

Is it possible to get approved for two 75k offers in one day when applying at two different times or does it need to be via 2bm?

Applied twice. Came up as a duplicate. Would recon push the second app?
