Offer is available for first-time upgrades to the new Business Platinum Card only and for one Card account only.

But does that mean first time for that particular card/account, or first time ever for that customer?  I think the former.

Does it have language?

Nope.  I had little doubt about getting bonus, but it was more around the app being cancelled as a duplicate.  Will give it a shot though.

How soon can you apply for another BGR targeted offer after having recently been approved before? (I know with other products AMEX may cancel as a duplicate app).  For example I applied/approved for a BGR bonus in Nov and currently targeted for another 75k/5k BGR offer.

Both, although I think the second part [having upgraded the card in the past] is more important.

Has this been confirmed with real-world data points?  i.e. upgrade card to Biz Plat for first time and get bonus, downgrade same card, then utilize another targeted upgrade offer to Biz Plat on same card again = no bonus?

Same thing happened to my wife - first a letter to verify app info for an Amazon Chase card (also was a hard pull on her report), and then later an Amazon Store card from Synchrony Bank.   I also thought one of her old Amazon (Payment) accounts got hacked, but I saw that an app from there still requires knowing/entering your SSN from scratch.

I want all my transactions in one place. If I have a paypal balance when making a purchase, that transaction won't show up on my credit card, thus it won't be in Mint.

Yes you can add your Paypal account to mint.  The balance is counted like a bank account and will show transactions.

Hadn't been in my bluebird account for a few weeks, but just went in and saw both my account and my wife's had been given a $25 "Good Faith" credit back in October. Not that I'm complaining, but did anyone else receive this?

My wife and I did as well, due to transaction processing delays on a particular date in September.

I did it twice in the last month...

Shot down twice in last 2 days.  Not sure it's just me but both said when they 'try' to do it the system won't allow it...

I have the 50k bonus pending and was charged the $450 af + $175 au (1st statement just closed)
Is there any way for me to get points expedited b4 paying balance?
I've heard chatter about Amex chat but that does not seem to exist

I paid off the balance but still got shot down via AMEX chat (claiming they can't accelerate promo points anymore, only spend points), so I'm curious how others fare.  Not sure if it is a matter of DACA (Disconnect And Chat Again)

So you can't just charge $5 to it every month and pay it off, you need to charge enough so that the minimum payment is less than the monthly bill?

No need, a payment in full also qualifies - from program rules:

"Qualifying Payment A monthly payment received on or before the Due Date, which is more than the Minimum Payment due; a payment in full received on or before the Due Date is a Qualifying Payment"

One trick I've seen work with MCs is hitting the cancel or change payment button immediately after swiping, which brings up a payment selection menu where you manually select ATM/debit.  Then the PIN prompt comes and it will process correctly.
