Glad I didn't wait and went for the 25k, doesn't look like 30k is coming back

If we are all about hope, well then, I'm hoping that it comes back with a whopping sign up bonus. Like 100k. Wouldn't that be nice?

This whole thread is dedicated to hoping for a card with 5k more SPG points than the existing one. C'mon, up the ante!

Why is that? I haven't done enough research on all the offers/churning opportunities on the plat cards I'm afraid...

If the annual fee scares you for whatever reason there's always SPG+PRG+Delta, all with waived fees.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Annual fee doesn't scare me... actually just fairly new to the churn game (loving it btw :)  ) and need to do the research on Plat cards (how long to wait between signups, to close or can I move over lines, where I can hit spending thresholds, as AP isn't suggested with Amex etc.)
I'm more familiar with Chase and just need to learn Amex best I can...
Anyhow thanks for all the suggestions... I'm waiting to see if 30k fee comes out, then I figure once I do the 2bm (only one Business Amex currently after FR few years back where I shut down 4 Amexs and therefore have my doubts about even getting approved for 2bm) I'll learn on the go :)
