My spg biz was ~$4500 over CL. I transfered 6k credit over to it, and applied and was instantly approved for 3 cards. Go figure.

I'm still not convinced that the biz card is actually over, there is no chance that an SPG SUB won't be back.

What makes you so confident of that?

But remember Chase has a personal card too, and a luxury one too (Ritz), so their edge over Chase is the Biz card only.
And making the card 2ppd, doesn't seem to be focusing it all on there.

i hear ya maybe they think the 2ppd alone is enough to keep people coming or you could be right and when new card comes out they'll pick up bonus  but to to a higher statement credit not points. Don't forget they just ran a higher SUB that very well could have been them giving everyone one last chance.

We have no way of knowing, but I wouldn't be surprised I'd they bring back a points SUB, or over a lower point amount, with some sort of SC.
And the increased bonuses always came around, so it isn't indicative about "a last chance"

@Dan You mentioned on DDMS that you can have more than 1 of the same SPG card. I got a personal through last night and then tried again same night, and it was flagged as duplicate. Tried again this morning and same thing. Any tips?

Dan mentioned in DD post yesterday that if  you’re already an Amex customer there’s no hard credit pull, is that something new? (Not been following for a while) Does that mean there’s no point in apporama with amex anymore?

Doesn't hurt to wait and see if you haven't gotten it yet, but I wouldn't say that it's certainly going to return

It may not be a hard pull, by logging into my amex account, I got a message on my app that I'm pre-approved but i think it would still show up as a new account which counts towards 5/24... Correct me if I'm wrong
