How is Amex lately with 3bm's - easy to accomplish?  My year is almost up since I last had the SPG cards and I want to get the Blue Cash and the SPG personal and business. 
What do you do after your dreams come true?

What about getting the bonus on 12 SPG cards and then converting one to this.
That would be the best of both worlds. You know anyone that pulled it off?  :)

Enjoy it while it lasts, don't waste a pull on it.

If I plan on doing a pull for a 2BM for Amex anyways (starwoods & PRG) is it a waste to make it a 3BM and include this card as well?

Why not just meet the spend threshold on a card with a bonus and convert?

Thanks. So I'm better off meeting the spend threshold on the SPG and then converting it - but do I run the risk of this going dead before I have a chance to convert?

Yes.

:( . Plan B is to see if my Amex 2BM
for my wife gets approved tonight, if (hopefully!!) it does, convert my SPG into this card and just add myself as an AU onto hers. Is that feasible/a good/bad idea?

In this case, YMMV doesn't mean you need to keep trying. 

It means either your card eligible for the conversion, or it isn't.
