most people here are over 5/24. That doesn't mean we have to stay over forever. We could by lying low (and only getting new business cards) to get under 5/24 and get some more chase cards

Cards don't need to be activated to use. Can just use them and add to Twitter but won't be Ble to manually add offers.
Also, based on emails I got, if you don't add dob or ssn within 60 days, they claim they will deactivate the card.

They are getting stricter on this, points not being awarded and  accounts being closed because they were missing d.o.b and ssn.

Got all 4 AUs and spent 1K on them right away. Only one transaction of 2500 points posted to my account they day after all charges posted. Anyone else not get all? And if yes what are you doing about it......

This seems to be a common issue. Have same problem on the plat offer.

Asked amex and they say to wait.
Is there a way to speed up the process?

They're waiting until they shut the card down for not giving Social # and then they don't have to give the points :)

Why was everyone so scared to submit dob/ssn? IME, AU's don't really impact 5/24.

I've received bonus on one of my spg cards, but still optimistic that other 3 will post after my statement closes. I've gotten bonuses on all 4 Hilton cards that I added. 1 of the Hilton bonuses posted within a couple days, but the other 3 didn't post till statement closed.

They knew about extra and said they will let me keep it as compensation.

Every time I spoke to CSR at that time they offered it to me, and I got the bonus on most of them automatically, now I got for the 2 that weren't added. Same was with PRG offer 5k MR.

On my statement that I got yesterday it says 9.5k bonus points earned (besides from the points earned for spending) but I don't see it in my SPG account.

Got the same letter and my statement today. The statement shows the missing 5,000 bonus points. But those are the points that posted already in the beginning of May. This month's statement's points posted, but no additional points. So double dipping only.

The checks are actually for different accounts, seems like it's more like compensation, so I guess i should wait for another check to arrive.

I also received a $150 check in the mail.
This is instead of 15,000 points which I did not receive.
Besides the obvious lower redemption value, I wonder if this will be taxable.
Anyone think it's worth fighting Amex and insisting I receive points instead of cash?
