I'm not certain what the market is like right now.  I know I've gotten a lot higher than 1.5 in the past though.

Depending how many usually 1.7 -1.8

Annual fee posted. What's the best way to get a retention bonus, Calling or SM?

Try both . Call first and if they say anything in Sm you forgot.

There is an add I just saw on FT right now for the 30k Starwood...When I click on the link though the bonus information is not 30k...

This is the add link before it switches to the amex page:

http://ad.doubleclick.net/click;h=v8/3e31/0/0/%2a/n;273863332;0-0;0;99908171;3454-728/90;55408703/55292950/1;;~okv=;pc=[TPAS_ID];;~sscs=%3fhttps://www304.americanexpress.com/personal-card-application/starwood-preferred-credit-card/40520-10-0

Only even shows me the offer on a cleared browser

yes. No luck. I really think it was an advertising mistake (maybe because it is going to be bumped up shortly?)

May I have some guidance, please.

I am getting ready to pull a 2 or 3BM just as soon as the highly anticipated Starwood extra bonus goes live. Can someone just answer briefly:

1) Already having Starwood business won't prevent me from getting the bonus on the consumer version, right?
2) If I have a Green Card, can I get a signb-up bonus from another charge card? Or is that just considered an upgrade of the same card?
3) My Green is 22 years old! I should be able to backdate any other Amex card (charge or credit) to that date, yes?
4) What other Amex card(s) should I go for at the same time as the Starwood consumer?

Thanks, guys! May Hashem enlighten you for sharing your wisdom!

I signed up for two SPG personal (me, wife) and one SPG Biz a few months ago. Hit the 5000 spend and was wondering why my points weren't turning up. Signed up using Dan's link on top of the main page. They PM'd me back saying that they don't see anything like that on my file. Said they are going to investigate, etc., asked for a screenshot of the offer.

Has this happened to anyone? What to do? (PS I don't have a screenshot)

How did you miss it straight away when the 10k didn't show up?
