Several weeks ago I was approved for 2 SPGs, 1 business & 1 personal.  I entered no SPG member number on the apps so they assigned two new ones.  Then I noticed a week or two later that they had changed the number on the personal card to the one on the business card, i.e. they combined the accounts.  I got the intro bonus on both cards but when I try to login to spg.com I get an error "We cannot locate this Starwood Preferred Guest account." 
Has anybody had a similar experience?  I'm not sure how to fix this? TIA
i am currently having similar issue. although i had already seen them merged and accessed the account since then for some reson today its not working. im going to wait another day before i start making phone calls

On my chase personal vs business cards, I was given 2 separate logins. They told me I can either have 2 logins or move over all the personals to the business account. Maybe AMEX has the same story.

we arent discussing the AMEX site thats ok they always put your business and personal on the same login. its SPG thats the issue
EDIT: and its no longer an issue i just logged on without a problem and all my points were there both consumer and business

Same here.  Now I can log on and all the points are there.  Weird.  I do keep getting a message that there's a problem with my email set-up and to contact CS.  I don't see where to edit email address in SPG.  Is your login ID supposed to be your email?

Does the yearly limit on returns end with the calendar year or with the cards anniversary?

One more data point: I have a personal SPG card and was recently approved for a 2nd personal SPG card (using a new SPG #). Spent $3k so far and haven't seen the initial 10k points post. Anxious to see if the 20k points will post once I reach $5k spend.

I spent the 5k and did not get the 20k bonus.
Good Luck though

I was able to convince Chase not to do this.  I have separate logins.

My wife opened a SPG but used my SPG number.  Will that pose a problem re the bonus?

Spending $5k in six month is from the day you are approved or activated?
