He's probably the only guy with enough patience not to call amex asking where his points are a week after he applied.

Why do you say it's not true, of course he has patience.

Maybe he follows his own advice?  ;)

I noticed a pattern, though I'm or sure it makes a difference, I believe he does his spending and payment as soon as it arrives

I.e. I opened a second spg card left the spg number blank they assigned me a new number, I was in no rush to spend yet when I completed my spend I noticed that they had merged my 2 spg accounts hence no auto bonus

So paying bill right when charge gets posted gets you another sign up bonus?

Dan does pay his bills a few times a months...not sure if that's what you're referring to.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

If it all posts prier to them merging you accounts, then yes your churn might have a better chance of working

They merge my new card with my existing MR account before I get the card in mail.

Do you think it's possible amex lets him get away with these things knowing he'll blog about it and get others to sign up?

The other possibility I could think of is this ;D
