2 readers have emailed me that they got 30,000 AMEX MR points after signing up for the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Charge Card (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/premier25k/) and spending $1,000.

It's only supposed to be 15,000 points

Has this happened to anyone else?

I had wanted to open a starwood account and just received the Premier Rewards Gold offer for 50K points. Is it a no brainer to go for the PRG and get the 50K points? Is it a better card? I do see that it's $175 per year vs. $45 per year after the first year. Can I get the points and then cancel before the year is up? Any thoughts?

no reason you shouldn't be able to cancel before the year is up. (although, if it's your only MR card, you'll lose the points. you'll need to transfer them out to airlines before you cancel OR open amex blue (no annual fee) to hold the points.

are amex MR points good for anything?
in addition to all other uses, they can be transferred out to airlines. (1:1 on many) (not as many as SPG and without the 25% bonus, but decent nonetheless)

note to both: transferring MR points requires having a amex Gold or higher card.

Yes, they are a stable currency IMHO. AMEX has too much good will on the line to pull a cheap shot like what Citi did.

Yes, I signed up for this card about two months ago and I have received 30,000 MR points. When I check it out, it shows me that there is a welcome bonus of 15,000 and another 15,000 with FIRST PURCHASE (i did not spend $1000 yet on the card).
Do you think that I will be able to receive an additional 15,000 bonus points once I spend $1000 in three months?

I just signed up. What is strange is that if you pretend to close put the page, a box pops up saying that if you sign up, you will get 10k with the first purchase....and then 15k after spending 30k in 3 months...

The regular app page says its 15k after spending 1k in 3 months...something doesn't make sense

Yes, Amex in my account summary describes the points earned as follows:

15K MR Points w/first purchase
15,000 rewards premier welcome

These points posted within two weeks of card activation.

I just signed up for the card last month and I have since spent more then $1,000. I am waiting to see if I get an additional 15,000 for spending more then $1,000 in the first three months. when I originally signed up. I will post again if this happens. I also have 3 other Amex cards, so if you have other Amex reward cards don’t cancel just apply for this one and i believe you can transfer Amex points from one card to another.

Yes!  I use them for a 1:1 transfer to other programs.  For example, my 30,000 bonus points are going to be transferred to Continental for 30,000 miles, which just so happens to be enough for a round trip ticket to Cancun.  Check out www.membershiprewards.com for more.

I had seen the 30,000 points posted to my account last week. Yesterday when I checked, they were gone!  I called and the agent told me that he saw it as pending until the end of this billing cycle.  I hope I still receive them.  It seems that they've caught the error! Should I still attempt to reach 1000 in spending?

Is anyone else noticing the points were posted and now disappeared??

Try calling MR and ask if you pay the statement now can the 30,000 points be posted to your account immediately so you can transfer them to an airline.

Thanks for the advice.  i tried calling today and they said that regardless of when I pay, the points will be applied at the end of my billing cycle. 

Anyone else notice that their miles disappeared?

 usually it will show what you have earned but they are pending. they usually become available into your acct for using after that statement closes and is paid off.

 eg my statement closed on 2/10 and is due 3 /08 I spent $10,000. on 2/11 I will have 10,000 pts pending, so till I pay the bill they arent available to me. If I pay the the FULL amount on 2/11 then I understand once that payment clears the pts will be mine to spend.

 on my 3/10 statement the pts earned by my spending on my 2/10 bill will show as earned and in my acct, but not the pts I earned for any spending between 2/11 & 3/10 . the pts always get posted once the previous bill has been paid.

Mopst CCs programs dont work this way, you get the pts for that months bill then and there w/o having to wait till you pay the bill. I think its only Amex charge Cards that run this way. Since Amex DL,SPG,HH CCs transfers the pts/miles then and there as well

I think transferring them is a good idea.
Figuring out which program is the only challenge...

Officially no, however someone once did transfer points to my account by saying I was his bro-in-law.  I was never been able to replicate that myself though.

Air Canada and Continental are both good options.

Airtran even may be decent.

do they ever let you transfer 1:1 to starpoints?
It shows on my statemens
30,000 points earned
1,130 - pending
but in the balance it shows 0   :(
when I called up they said that they are both pending and they could only put through the 1000 now, not the 30,000 bonus
btw I payed my balance yesterday and today it confirmed...

If you transfer to non-US airlines there is no fee.
But $18 is no big deal in my book for 30,000 miles and CO is a fine safe choice.

If so, is there a risk in spending the 30k and not getting it? If you file an inquiry they will see they already gave the extra 15k?

I have a better question.... when you hit the 30k in a year, do the points post right away or at the end of the year..? I am very close to 30k already...

I had wanted to open a starwood account and just received the Premier Rewards Gold offer for 50K points. Is it a no brainer to go for the PRG and get the 50K points? Is it a better card? I do see that it's $175 per year vs. $45 per year after the first year. Can I get the points and then cancel before the year is up? Any thoughts?

did you sign up for Amex 50K ? online? did it show up on the screen during application? did you get the 50K points in the end?

(i just got it in the mail, but don't see it on screen, not sure if to bother)

I signed up again for the AMEX gold through the 25K points promotion and received the 25,000 points this week.

It's giving me 10k. Hyperinflation?

You think it might be worth to wait a bit for a big promo to come?

I'm tempted to do the biz for 50k... just not sure I will pass another F/R...

Dan,

What is the difference between the gold card that gives 25k (that seems to be dead according to the main site) and the gold card that offers 15k but seems to yield 30k?

Are they the same card but different links being used to apply? Which ones are still available?

It's the same card, different offers.
When the card first came out the offer was 15K, but yielded 30K for everyone after spending $1,000.
Then there was a 25K offer for a limited time.
Now it's back to 15K, but it's very possible that really that will yield 30K again.

I, personally opened the 15k (30k) one.
I opened the 25k one for my wife.

Based on what people are reporting, should i be able to open the 15(30)k one for my wife now as well?
Could i open another one?

If you get the card you should get the points again.  Whether they let you open up another card is up to them.

The rep said she couldn't find that offer but she found an offer for 25k after FIRST purchase and an additional 25k if additional cardholder spends 5k in 6 months. so she said she would note that offer on my account

I applied 3 months ago, spent the 1K, and just got credited the 30K. I figured if it was ultimately an error on their end since they were offering only 15K, that they would have the right to renege. I'm glad to hear you haven't heard any bad experiences.

If you live in an apartment, change the Apt. # format. Example: If it was 2B, enter B2.
If you don't live in an apartment, add in an apt. #.
Also try making a "slight mistake" on the name.
And do not enter you membership #.

What can you do about the $175 fee next year ? cancel the card?  I dont think there is a free MR charge card that you can transfer too. and canceling the card will mean losing any MR points u didn't use - unless you transfer them all out of MR before you close

Straight from the site you were just looking at:
"Points Advance allows you to redeem for rewards more quickly by advancing you Membership Rewards points at no extra charge. You must simply accrue enough points in your program account to satisfy the Points Advance within 12 months. If you don’t accrue enough points by then, your Card account will be charged for the remaining balance at $0.025 per point, which is the current Purchase Points cost in effect."

I have purchase from a non US based and received the bonus.
It needs to be catergorized as Airline i.e. if purchased through a travel agent and they bill you or some travel websites, and the charge does not say directly from the airline you will not receive it.
I actually just purchased from Expedia.com and the charge came up from expedia and the airline w/ all the passenger info, and was catergorized as Airline/Travel and I got the bonus 3 pts.

I have a question to all of you who experienced this already:

Buying on Amex's travel site usually gives you double MR points, how about buying this with the gold card, how much will you earn, I have 3 options to think:
1. you'll receive only 3, because you can't double dip.
2. you'll receive 4, 3 for gold, and one extra for using their site.
3. you'll receive 5, 3 for gold, and 2 for their site.
4. you'll receive 6, 3 for gold, and another 3, since using their site gives you "double" points.

I called in Amex's MR number 4 times, and i've gotten every time a different answer, between 1-3 (nobody said option 4), I'd like to know if anyone here experienced this already, and what was the actual outcome.

3. you'll receive 5, 3 for gold, and 2 for their site.
4. you'll receive 6, 3 for gold, and another 3, since using their site gives you "double" points.

I called in Amex's MR number 4 times, and i've gotten every time a different answer, between 1-3 (nobody said option 4), I'd like to know if anyone here experienced this already, and what was the actual outcome.
I just booked through their travel site and I am waiting to see the charge it should come up tomorow.
I will see how they catergorize it.
I would assume that even if they do not bill it through the airline you should be able to get them to give you 3x for the air fair besides for the 2x.
You can always call them and tell them that you had the option to book directly w/ the airline and you chose to book through their website.

I booked from Amex travel site. The charges came up as follows:
1 charge from the airline w/ the passenger details which should definitely be eligible for 3x besides the 2x for booking through their site.
And another charge for $21.98 which was included in the original price they just split it up.
I assume that it is a booking fee possibly around $11 per ticket I purchased 2 tickets.
The second charge was catergorized as Travel/Airline It should also be eligible for 3x,  I will wait and see till my statement prints.

Post by: AJK on July 05, 2011, 03:07:17 PM
I have purchase from a non US based and received the bonus.
It needs to be catergorized as Airline i.e. if purchased through a travel agent and they bill you or some travel websites, and the charge does not say directly from the airline you will not receive it.
I actually just purchased from Expedia.com and the charge came up from expedia and the airline w/ all the passenger info, and was catergorized as Airline/Travel and I got the bonus 3 pts.

I use this all the time, they give 3 times on every transaction that appears as travel, even fees etc. in an event that you didn't get it just call them and they'll give it you gladly.

The above posts seem to be at odds with each other...

So for clarification:

I am about to spend a few thousand dollars on travel from a Travel Agency based out of Israel called "GLOBAL TRAVELS JERUSALEM"

My question is: Do I use AMEX Gold or do I use my 2% Cash Back Visa?

I would use AMEX Gold, but only if I get the 3x bonus; otherwise, I'd use my 2% cash back (which is worth more than 1x AMEX MR points).

Anyone have any insight?

when i booked through a jerusalem travel agent the charge came through as from elal.
bear in mind that you probably will have to pay a foreign transaction fee of 3% on the amex on the tickets. if your 2% visa has no foreign transaction fees your better off with that. otherwise use the amex

Definitely thru Amex gold, if you won't get the points you should just SM or call and they will gladly give it you.

Excellent catch on the (possible) forex fee. Anyway to know if I would get smacked with a forex fee before I make the charge? My cash back card is the 2% charles schwab visa which, AFAIK, has zero forex fees.

EDIT: I have charged travel expenses from this same Israeli travel agent to my Charles Schwab Visa in the past, but I have no idea if they were "foreign exchange fee worthy." I mean, it looks like I got charged in $ - does that help figure it out? How would I find out?

Definitely thru Amex gold, if you won't get the points you should just SM or call and they will gladly give it you.

Great to know. Thanks for the prompt reply. (Just need to work out the forex issue before charging on AMEX.)

If the charge is in dollars even though it is done in Israel there is no Forex fee this is with American Express.
I know that with Citi bank CC you will get charged regardless if the charge is in dollars.
Elal tickets are billed in Dollars.

Thanks for the valuable data point. As I edited my post above to indicate, I have used my Charles Schwab Visa Cash Back card with zero forex fees to pay for my tickets in the past, and it got charged (as seen on my statement) in USD/$.

Does this make me safe to charge this upcoming amount on AMEX to get the 3x?

Travel agent laid out the money for me. I need to pay him back. So, they were booked.

Travel agent laid out the money for me. I need to pay him back. So, they were booked.
Then it is too late for my idea.
Which was, if the travel agent is dumping on extra fees or it is some sort of a special ticket that they need to put the credit card through their system, then ask them to split up that charges i.e. cost of ticket from airline $1000 + $25 booking fee or whatever. I have done that in the past, they may not like doing it, depending on the travel agent they may do it.

In regards to 3x from Travel agents, technically they are not eligible, however I have done it in the past and usually amex will give it to you. I once had a issue but after calling a couple of times and explaining to them that I had no idea that they were booking it that way and telling them that I can send them the Itinerary I was able to get the 3x.

I would take the gamble!

What exactly did you explain to them?

I would take the gamble!

I'd agree. I figure it this way:

Assume I'm spending $2000.00.
Using VISA: 2% cash back = $40.00.
Using AMEX: (assuming only 1x) 2000 MR points = $30.00 (assuming I can sell for $.015 - which I likely can)
Using AMEX: (if I get 3x) 6000 MR points = $90.00

So by using the AMEX, I risk losing $10 (if I only ultimately get 1x) for a chance at making an additional $60 (if I ultimately get 3x).

Seem right to you?

Also -- the last wrinkle is if I will get smacked with a 2.7% AMEX Forex fee... Still haven't heard from anyone their opinion on that... To repeat:

I have charged travel expenses from this same Israeli travel agent to my Charles Schwab Visa in the past, but I have no idea if they were "foreign exchange fee worthy." I mean, it looks like I got charged in $ - but I'm not sure if that's conclusive....  How would I find out?

Yes, Charles Schwab does not have forex fees. That being said, I have used the CS card for past dealings with this Israeli travel agent, and my statement those charges have showed up as being in dollars. No shekels, no conversion rate. With that being the case, would it be safe to assume that I would not incur forex fees on AMEX for this Israeli travel agent? Thanks

Why not open an Amex Plat(MB) and spend $1,000 and get 50,000 MR as well to add on top of that. I would not transfer to SPG as the ratio would not be worth it if you ask me.

Is this the first year you have the PRG card?
If yes there is no reason they shouldn't waive the fee.
And by the way, maybe its because you asked them to wave the fee. Try again now asking them to waive the fee.
But 10k points is what you keep for compensation for the trouble you have.

It was not the first year I had the card. I did ask them to WAIVE the fee. Thanks for the spell check.

With those cards you should be good to go.
Probably worth doing a 2BM or 3BM to try multiple cards with the same pull.  No harm if you don't get em all.

I want to get a PRG but I have a unique situation.
I am grandfathered in at a $55 annual fee on my (22 year old) green card.
A rep told me several months ago that if I ever upgrade and then go back to my green, he doesn't think he can ever get that AF back since there isn't even any code for it.
Does this sound believable? Why would he talk me out of upgrading? Am I being a sucker to not go for the PRG upgrade just cuz I like my little $55 AF?

I am not planning on doing an AOR before sukkos.  I had applied for the BGR either one or two AORs ago, but I was declined.  The advantage is that I assume there is no hard pull to go this route.  Maybe I could huca for the 50k match?  Maybe I would get the 25k offer to upgrade to Platninum?  What do you think?

You can ask, which i don't believe will negatively affect you. Depending on what they say, you can decide what you want to do. Maybe you can save a pull or add another cc on your AOR if you just go with the upgrade now.

Called up Amex and they have no record of my offer and asked me for the offer code (We both applied through Dan's link).
I have a screen shot of my wife's app, but can't seem to find the screen shot of mine (of course).

Any suggestions? They said they would look into it but I'm not hopeful. Never had this card before either.

If you never had this card before be insistent.  Why would you not take advantage of the same offer your Wife received . Explain to them you are not irresponsible , and why wouldn't you expect the same bonus/consideration.

After all you are applying for an Amex card which shows you are intelligent, so nothing less should be expected of you

I like your enthusiasm  :D

I tried a bunch of similar lines, and they said they would look into it and that's all they could do without the offer code. If I don't hear anything back in a couple days I'll call back and try again (I do want to close the card soon so I can churn it eventually) but I wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience or knew what code to give them. Guess I learned my lesson to be more careful about my screen shots...

I didn't it up to a supervisor this time. I already have been an Amex holder for 5 years, just not this specific card. I also have the BGR (now Platinum) card and I was possibly concerned that since I already got a promotional bonus through those cards I might not be eligible for the PGR bonus, but I don't think that should be the case.

Anyway looks like I'll just have to call again and use more 'persistence'.

Are there any cards that a PRG can be converter to that have no fee besides a green card? I have many AU's and don't want to lose them...
On a related note, is there any way to merge two cards so i keep all the AU's?

Trying to figure out what to do with my MR points.

I have 66,000 points and will earn another 40,000 (should post on 1/7/14) thanks to an upgrade from PRG biz to Plat biz.  I hope to close the plat before 1/31/14 to avoid the annual fee.  I also have a blue for biz that I can use to bank points.

Should I transfer my 66,000 points to BA for the 20% bonus or should I hold my points with the blue for biz account. 

My real question is how hard will it be to get another Green, Gold, or Plat card to use for airline transfers at some later date?

My history/plans with Amex Charge cards:
May 2013 - Opened PRG Biz card
Dec 2013 - Upgraded from PRG Biz to Plat Biz
Jan 2014 - Hope to close the Plat Biz account

Thanks.

Already did PGGM in 20013 and hope to do it again after 1/1/14.
Is it still possible to get 5k by downgrading from Plat to Green.
If so, how?

I spoke to 2 reps and neither one let me continue my first year without paying the annual fee (whether I downgraded to green or gold).  I ended up downgrading to green hoping that I'll be able to get 5k MR after one purchase and then close the account.

Anyone know what the deadline for closing the green card will be to avoid paying the (prorated) $95 AF.  I hope that the points post before that deadline.

From Dan's article "Credit cards for dummies".

Note that AMEX always reports every card you open as being opened in the year that you first got an AMEX card.  So if an AMEX was your first card then don’t sweat it as you can always get that date again by just opening a new card.

Or get a blue from american express before you cancel.  If you have another credit card (not charge) you can convert it. That doesn't allow airline transfers but it keeps your MR's until you get another card.

If you get another MR earning card, it will keep your points intact if you close the PRG. The blue doesn't transfer to airlines, but can be used as a place holder like the Freedom card.

Not sure if this is the best place to post this. There was a 50k offer for amex gold rewards in Nov. When I clicked on link, I got message that I was ineligible for that bonus since I already was an amex cardholder but I could get the then current offer of 25k. I never got the bonus I called and was told there was no record of such a bonus offer. When I complained they said I could write corporate. Well I just got the same response from them. Does anyone have a screenshot of a 25k offer from Nov. or have any advice what I should do?

Amazing! Do you have other cards open with Amex now?

I have several other Amex cards. But in 2013 I spent the 30K to get the 15K MR bonus, so that might have made this card more valuable to them.

Should I go for this and keep offer in case they do not give me bonus or is this a waste of time and a credit pull

Apply for other cards as well, so that you don't "waste" a credit pull for this card only.

But do I have a good chance getting bonus since fine print on offer in mail did not restrict it to new cardholders?
also if I apply for consumer and business cards from Amex same day is that 1 pull or 2?

I doubt chances are good. Read fine print on the site, like it instructed you to do. I think it's 2 pulls,  I don't rem though.

I get offers for UA as well with the same card, same bonus, even though I still have the card open. I think it's automatic... When you sign up, there are terms and offers you need to "accept" or agree to. Doesn't matter if an email says otherwise.

FAQ:
Q: If I apply for business and consumer cards in the same 3bm will it still only cause one pull? What about mixing credit and charge cards?

A: If you're doing a 3bm with Chase, mixing business and consumer cards will usually cause 2 pulls, but there have been recent reports of only getting one. Though with AMEX, one can mix them together with no worry. In regards to mixing credit and charge cards, it does NOT make a difference, and your credit will only be pulled once.

I've never had the Premier Gold card before. As a matter of fact I've never had any Amex card with membership rewards. I currently have their blue cash everyday and am an AU on the Blue Sky card.

However, when I follow Dan's link for the Premier Gold card, it doesn't give me any bonus offer. Just a first year annual fee waiver. There's red letters on the top of the page that says, "You have been identified as a current American Express Card Member. You may have seen an offer advertised for this product previously, but the offer is not available to current American Express Card Members."

Is there just no bonus offer right now or is this just for everybody?

If you want to keep the MR, you need to apply for a card that gives you MR.  Everyday card gives you Dollar Rewards, not MR. If you ask them for an incentive to keep the card open for another year, it might be worth paying the AF.

Some clarification required. Is the following true?

To retain MR points ( avoid losing them when you close a card)  you need to have another card which earns MR points.
To transfer MR points to FF programs, you need A Gold card or higher.

Was pending, called new accounts, he put me on hold for a few minutes and told me it was approved.  Said I would get the card in 2-3 days.  Email said "Your Card Application has been Rush Approved!"  Never got that before.  This is my fourth open card with Amex.

Later that day I applied for SPG.  New accounts says it's on hold for 3-5 days,  but I got an email saying "I've reached the maximum number of cards they approve in a few months."  New accounts said it was flagged as a duplicate and sent to underwriting.  The status page changed from canceled to in progress.

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually 2 different products! But hey, why let fact get in your way  :P

Call American Express and give them the promo code/ or application code or whatever it's called on the online application, they should be able to change it to 75K for 10k spend.  I did it.

At $195/yr with a $100 airline reimbursement (effectively $95/yr like the Chase SP) + no forex, 2x at restaurants and the same 3x from airlines, this card becomes quite the competitor.

Finally, Amex has realized that no forex fees is not a benefit anymore. Its something that you most offer in order to be up to date... Almost every Chase card has no forex fees. IMO the only reason Amex was so obnoxious with that was because back in the days when every CC charged forex fees they were the only one offering a special card, called the Platinum card which had no forex fees. It was the most prestige full AMEX card for that reason. They were saying every where that its the only card for the traveler etc, not realizing that they are really old fashioned and outdated. That the UMPE card has no forex fees. But they didn't wanna face the fact and waive forex fees for the PRG because it would automatically bring down the prestige from the Platinum card. But finally they realized that it was not the right business decision.

This card after the SPG for general spending just became my favorite.
3 x on flights is awesome, 1 more than the sapphire gives
They matched the sapphire at restaurants & ink plus for 2 x at gas.

MR points IMO are worth more than UR. When I say worth I mean more options to transfer + 40% bonus to BA for example

Considering that Amex seems to limit how many personal card accounts you can have at one time, and you cant get more than 5 add'l cards on a PRG account without paying more $$, it would seem to me that the benefits of having as many add'l cards as you want (for SBS purposes) on a cheaper personal card, far outweighs the benefits that come with PRG.

I have been targeted through email for an upgrade to Platinum for 50,000 points after $3000. Seem to get the targeted email every 2 months, with deadline extended each time. My annual will be due in August and I plan on jumping on it before then, giving that I've already had the straight sign-up for Platinum already a few years back.

If you cancel now you get back $175. If you PGGM after June 1 you get $100 for PGGM plus 3/4 of $175= $131.25 Ummmm do you like being spoonfed? :P

Does it have 12m language or not? Also in general you can get a card but in regards to getting the points with Biz in general is 12m after closing and with personal is currently once per lifetime.

My annual fee is due on this card and I was getting ready to cancel it, until I saw that this benefit was going to become available 6/1.   I have about a week before the payment is due.  I realize that Amex will prorate the fee if I cancel later - I'd just rather pull the plug soon.

Called to cancel BCP as I wanted to make space for other Amex cards. Had a few RD left over.

CSR #1 said---gee, you'll lose those if you don't product switch. Can't do nuthin' about it. ---So I hung up.

CSR #2 said---gee, you have RD left over and you have a long history with us. As a courtesy, I can apply a cash credit to any of your other accounts for the amount of RD left over. Which account would you like?

First though of OBC. Then it seemed like a bad idea to have eyes on that spending...so I asked for a credit on the PRG---even though it's not in the RD program or a "Blue" Amex product.  "No problem, happy to help you out!"

Will only open once per browser - if you plan on applying do it right away!

Enjoy!

In the T&C it says:

If we identify you as currently having an American Express® Card account, you may not be eligible for this welcome bonus offer. This offer is also not available to applicants who have or have had this product.

Is this enforced? I do have other Amex cards, will i not get the 50K?

My wifes account had this offer for what seems to be a PGGM on her PRG: $100 Airline Fee Credit
Up to $100 a year for incidental fees with your selected airline. Terms and limitations apply.

Has this always been the case?
Its not an AMEX offer, its a new benefit. See Here (http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/62092). I know you didn't post here but this is a better place to discuss this.

"implication"? If he didn't complete the spend, obviously the bonus didn't post,  and therefore his "confirmed report" is totally meaningless.

Again - his only source is from an Amex phone rep, and you called that a "confirmed report"?

Usually the simplest reasoning is the correct one.
I called and chatted with amex myself and got the same answer, I have no reason to believe it isn't true.
If anyone got the card after January and did get the bonus, I'll be very happy to be proven wrong

I think the take-aways here need to be that D93 should chill out with his/her assumptions, and unless someone can confirm otherwise, Dan should edit his post that the bonus only applies to cards prior to Jan 2015.

That was what I was asking. There seemed to be interest upstream, so I wanted to know if it is viable or should I just go with the 50k and be happy!
go with the fifty, I got 60 once and never ever saw it again, not from me or anyone else

Got 2 questions for the PRG/BRG
First amex deals, can i combine this with a cashback portal like topcashback/ebates/DD/etc?
Second cash advance worry, Given they're charge cards and that i can't find any info on amex's site or on the web about copping a cash advance fee, will purchasing VGCs on giftcards.com or similar sites for MS purposes incur a cash advance fee? If its possible I can just call in to lower  the cash advance limit and prevent it from going through then?

I believe as of yesterday.
I called on Monday to ask if the business gold card has forex fees. They told me that as of tomorrow (meaning yesterday ) they removed it.

Usually when you book thru an OTA the charge comes from the airline, so it would qualify. But in some cases when the charge comes from Priceline it would not qualify.

Should be the same--check the little '!' icon next to available points and it should show them as pending.

I chatted with amex they said point will post after closing date after I paid bill (say two month from opening even though I Finnished the spend after a few days)
For me and my wife it would be January 1st
I wanted to transfer the points to Iberia avios before December 31st.
Anyone manage to get the point earlier?
Would it help to HUCA again?

If you paid the bill and you see the points as pending, you can sometimes get them to accelerate them and have them post. Give them a call and explain why you want the points.

sure, got same offers here for biz plat and gold cards for higher bonuses. no language , no restrictions. you can definatly use it for someone else. call and say that your that person which the offer was addressed to. when it comes to stating your LEGAL NAME, tell them the legal name. if questioned, say it had my HEBREW name on the envelope, but for birth certificate and SSN/public records, my legal name is used. done this all the time, works. Good luck!

Interesting point; I had just received a 150k bonus offer. showed pending after 3 weeks of card-membership. first statement was generated about 8 days into new account. so first statement already printed, charges posted, 150k points pending as of 3 weeks of new account being opened. Bill was paid in full but manager couldn't accelerate pending points cause was part of bonus and 2nd statement didn't print yet. he was able to accelerate the 33 points from 1st statement which was for regular spending, and boom! the moment he did the 33, it pushed all pending points along with bonus.

Hey guys,
 So in my AMEX offers , I am pre-approved for the amex business gold with a whopping sign-up bonus of 75,000 points.
I really want this card and I would like to know what to put in on my application to be sure I adequately represent myself to be guaranteed accepted.
First off, what do I put for federal tax ID? and business name ? industry? estimated monthly spending?
secondly, i have credit score of 733 right now. is that good enough to be sure ill get the card?
TIA!

The easy answer is you put you federal EIN/TIN, and your business's name and industry, as well as the business's estimated monthly spend.

Second, there's never a guarantee to be accepted.

If you don't have an actual business entity but run some sort of side business, you can put its industry, estimated spend, "Your Name, Sole Proprietor," and use your social.

There are some devices that just seem to be targeted. My phone had one browser that used to be targeted on a consistent basis, until it got updated by mistake. Until then, I got every single offer every single time, and since then, it's the same as anybody else.

60 days from AF posting for a full refund, after that it's prorated.

Is my memory going or was the policy 90 days last year?  I waited until day 68 to cancel, figuring I still had time to kill, and lost $33 in the process.  Not the end of the world given what I've made off this card, but is there any chance I could get a full refund if I asked nicely enough, or is it not worth bothering?

I didn't even use the card since the fee posted, aside from one recurring payment that I forgot to switch to a different card, and then I made the mistake of waiting for the statement to close to make sure I'd get the points.  I guess I shouldn't have waited.

jet blue allows pets for a fee.
I get my airline credit by buying mileage flights on Southwest with companion pass. That's $5.60*2 for each flight so takes 9 flights per year to get the full $100 credit. I guess Platinum would be double that

I have 2 offers for PRG:
1 - 40k/2k spend now + 25k/2k spend next year
2 - 50k/2k spend now
Which one is more worthwhile? I don't mind waiting a year for the extra points, but the question is whether I'd need to pay the AF next year (this year is waived), or could I cancel/downgrade right after the 25k posts, and have the AF credited or prorated?
What do you think? Thanks.

I tried downgrading now since the AF will be posted by end of month, the said there's no way to downgrade since PRG is a charge card which they don't have a no-fee alternative. The only thing that can be done is closing the PRG & opening a Credit Card.

Any one has experience with this?

How about doing a bit of research into downgrade options for the PRG before asking them to downgrade you to a no AF card?

What do you mean by saying "downgrade options for the PRG"? Does that mean stying with the PRG without paying AF forever?

Will the $50 count toward meeting their spend or does the credit negate the spend $$?

From the T&C

Quote
You will earn one point for each dollar charged for an eligible purchase in each billing period on your Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express. You will get: 2 additional points (for a total of 3 points) for airfare on a scheduled flight charged directly with passenger airlines (charter flights and private jet flights are excluded); 1 additional point (for a total of 2 points) for each dollar charged at restaurants located in the US; 1 additional point (for a total of 2 points) for gasoline at gas stations located in the U.S. (superstores, supermarkets and warehouse clubs that sell gasoline are not considered gas stations); and 1 additional point (for a total of 2 points) for purchases at supermarkets located in the U.S. (superstores and warehouse clubs are not considered supermarkets). To get additional points for a restaurant purchase, the purchase must be at a restaurant located in the United States. You will NOT get additional points for purchases made at a restaurant owned by a U.S. company but located outside the U.S. (e.g. Hard Rock Café in Paris). You also will NOT get additional points for purchases at nightclubs, convenience stores, grocery stores, or supermarkets. You may not get additional points for purchases at a restaurant located within another establishment (e.g. a restaurant inside a hotel, casino, or event venue). For example, purchases made at a restaurant located within a hotel may be recognized as a purchase at a hotel, not a restaurant.

I may be the last one to know this but just to confirm...the Delta GC that I bought for $60 never triggered the Airline fee credit.  I went ahead and bought another one for $50 and got the credit for that in 2 days.

I recently got my first statement since getting the gold card, and when I was looking it over I noticed I didn't get the 20% back I'm supposed to get on restaurants for the first three months, on one of my restaurant charges. I called AMEX and the rep told me that the restaurant processed the payment using Square, therefore the charge is excluded from the 20% back offer even though the charge showed under the restaurant category. I then asked the rep if it states that in the T&C, and of course she said yes. I hung up and looked at the T&C and couldn't find anything there stating such a thing, so I called back and this rep ended up agreeing with me, and applied the 20% discount to my account for that charge. That's my story, anyone else have issues with the 20% restaurant offer?

I received the same $195 AF, but I am definitely earning based on the current points system, namely 4x MR on restaurants and supermarkets.

Have same thing on my personal gold, Just wasn't confirmed as an official status. Don't use BGR enough to know which point structure actually is applied

When adding AU's, AMEX is giving me a problem to add SS and birthday. Can the card be used without giving AU's SS?

They will likely cancel the card without the info, you'd get a notice about it.
You can chat with them to add it.

Is the 4x category bonus points up to $150k spend counted separately for every AU? That's what I was told and trying to confirm.

it seems as if the $100 airline incidental fee credit is per calendar year. does this mean that i can double dip for only 1 annual fee?

Yes, all the Amex airline fee credits go based on calendar year.

Yes, but you have to make sure the credit hits before the close of the year so you would want to give yourself a bit of a cushion.

Any good info on this yet?

Is the following scenario harmless, a really bad idea, or somewhere in between?

After maxing out 150k on shipping on the BGR, upgrade to plat (or downgrade to green), wait some time, then PC back to gold, to (hopefully) take advantage of a new 150k of bonus spend.

Any thoughts on how will amex take to that?
