2bm on SPG personal & biz results in 2 hard pulls?

or better do 2 SPG personal with 2bm for single pull?

Try both SM and phone for the 5k match, only if these options fail, try for the lower amount of courtesy points.  I am also waiting on SM response to same request, opened new SPG cards last month, trying for match.

Let me know how it turns out for you.

Often defeats the purpose of 2bm if your doing business and personal apps

+1, go for the SPG+AmEx MB+perhaps a gold to extend your ability to xfer points out for a year (if you can and don't plan on keeping plat).

Why can't you get PRG again?

Who said he can't? I interpreted his "won't" to mean he doesn't want to make any waves, but perhaps I gave him too much credit?
