Yeah,
I got FR'd with the business card...

Acitvated the card as soon as I got it and ordered $1000 from the mind that same day...
I don't know if the mint triggered it though...
Anyone can confirm this?

I would imagine its the mint that triggered it

I've heard from 2 people who applied last month, didn't even activate it and got F/R'ed.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Interesting. My wife's Biz card was flagged before we activated it. I called and they just wanted to verify that she was really the one who applied. Hung up the phone and was then able to activate it online.

Flagged and FR'ed are two very, very different things.

Precisely why i used the word "flagged" and not FR'd. I was just informing the public what happened with us in case something similar happened to someone else.

Actually not diverting at all. The topic began with the 30k promo and then turned to some people getting FR'd when signing up for this promo. I was presenting something else that was happening to some who signed up for this promo

Not Necessarily.
 That was a private email that Aussie got. What Egmeman brought from boardingarea.com is for everyone.

Had you read further in the thread, you would have seen everyone discussing how it was extended. Furthermore, just click on the links he provided which show the 30k offer still up...

Interestingly enough, that link edgeman brought was posted on none other than....July 14th, the same day we all found out about it here. Yes, the offer was extended and we all knew about it 7 days ago...

Has anyone gotten the 30k for this offer yet?

My wife (who had spg cards before) got 10k for opening (before even spending the 1k).

I saw people reporting on FT that the 10k will post initially and the the remaining 20k will post within 10-12 weeks. Just curious what others other getting so far (especially those who signed up for cards for the first time)

The links on OMAAT are from my email, so is the one on FT.

I wasnt gonna do this 1 as I just got 3 other CCs and had a Amex FR a few months ago which I refused to send my info in and they cut me from $50k to $25k.
Interesting. You got FR'd, refused to send in info and didn't get closed down, just cut the CL?

Can anyone who has managed to get an spg sign up bonus more than once answer this?

When you log in to see ur account  online, does it show on top "member since 2010"? or does it show "member since X", where X is the year you got your first amex card.

I just signed my wife up for another card and when i log into the new account using a new login user ID, it shows "member since 2008" which was the first year she ever had an amex card

Is that a problem?
It just means the date since she joined the AMEX family of credit cards.

However... I did read somewhere that Amex reports any Amex card (even new ones) as if it was opened the year when the oldest Amex card was opened.
Checked my Quizzle report and that didn't seem to be true, but there were other inaccuracies as well...

On Boarding area, someone is saying that the 30.000 bonus pts. are BESIDES the regular 10.000.
10.000 for opening the card, plus 30.000 for spending $1000 within 3 months.
Read comment #10 here:
http://boardingarea.com/blogs/onemileatatime/2010/07/14/spg-30000-point-sign-up-bonus-extended-through-july-31/
They say they heard this from customer service....
