Looks like this forum in inactive but i'll try my luck.

Status of my app for Blue Business Plus Credit Card is now "cancelled" due to "maximum number and type of Cards that we will approve within the period of a few months.".
see letter below
Any way to get approved? this is my 1st attempt at getting Amex business cards. 
I applied for this card 01/02/19.
On 10/08 I applied and was approved for 2 personal Amex cards.

AmEx will give me new credit cards but will no longer give me signup bonuses, even if I have never had the card before.  Has this happened to anyone else?

Was told on the phone when applying, and also showed up as a notification on the online application - both times asked if I still want to go through with the credit card application if I can't get the bonus.  Yes, I applied recently and was approved - got the card but no bonus.

Just made a rookie mistake. Applied for Amex business hilton, not realizing I already had 5 amex credit cards (3 business, 2 personal). Cant even call Amex now to withdraw application because its past there hours. Oh well...

My wife recently got a targeted offer for AMEX Delta with no language limiting signup bonus to new customers. I applied for the card and again, no pop-up warning that she's had the card before. AMEX called because she already had 5 cards, but gladly approved it after she closed one.

Now AMEX says they decided not to give her the signup bonus because she's churned the card twice before, and even though the T&C doesn't say new users only, it says they reserve the right to modify or withdraw the offer, which they're doing because she's abused it. This is for AMEX Delta Biz if it matters.

Has anyone else had something like this happen? Any recourse?
