I personally got 41,147 SPG points on my first statement after spending $1147 so i can confirm yes it was apparently 30k bonus on top of the 10k usual bonus!!!
And I heard that the Brooklyn Bridge is for sale.

So how much is the bridge going for?  ;)

Hmmm, so maybe it's 30K for personal and 40K for business?

I already had a personal SPG with Amex and didn't want to push my luck with them (don't want to risk another F?R), maybe I should have...
You might still be able to get it.
Originally when the offer was dying on the 6th., I called the phone application center to ask them a question, obviously the rep. had no clue about the 30.000 link but told me that at the time they had the 30.000 offer available until the 10th...
It might be worth giving them a call...

I did open up a new SPG account and put that number on the application just in case, below i added a screenshot for proof!!

I hope you guys got in  on this offer because it was incredible!!!  ;D ;D ;D



Your screenshot says "CSR" next to the 20k. Did you have to call and talk to a csr to get that to post?

Thanks, missed that, his choice of fonts made me dizzy :D

So maybe my hunch is correct, and it is 40K for business.

You mean the hunch that it's only 30K for personal? Maybe it's 40K for both. What leads you to believe that since the business is 40K that must mean that the personal is 30K and not 40K?

I was just responding to your quote from a commenter on another blog who said that he had heard that you would get 40K for the card.

If people are getting 40K that's great, but that original comment wasn't enough to convince me.

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.

Granted.
I did not mean to put you down in any way, just expressing my mixed feelings about the 40K.

Good Point it does say CSR but no I didnt not call in or anything and a friend of mine who also signed up through Dan's link for the Starwood AMEX Business got the same exact thing.

Have you heard any reports of 40K for the personal?

So far, it seems people are reporting 40k. Has anyone here gotten only 30k?
