Is that necessarily a good/bad sign...? Like getting a higher CL or something. Is it a sign of good or bad credit?
How do they decide who to give the temporary CL on SPG prod. and who not?

How much temporary CL did they give u?

I got temp limit of $1500 and actual limit of 15k...no clue how they decide. May just be a new thing they are doing.

Probably because it says it expired on 07/06...you might want up not qualifying for a bonus at all.

 ??  not so fast although you may have ordered $2500x2 the max is $1000 per address every 10 days and the 10 days are counted  from when they confirm the order and I believe get the funds from the CC used.

Be prepared for either them CXing the whole order or cutting it down to $1000 and if you used the same address that should be $1000 x 1 Only

HOT OFF THE PRESS
Just received this email from spg:

Dear aussiebochur,

As a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest® program, you're invited to enjoy our richest offer yet. For a limited time, get 30,000 Starpoints® 1 —enough for 3 free nights at The Westin St. Francis, W Chicago -Lakeshore or any other Category 4 SPG® property. 2 With the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, you can get Starpoints faster and redeem for Free Night Awards at more than 940 SPG hotels and resorts worldwide or for Award Flights on hundreds of airlines —all with no blackout dates. 3 Only Cardmembers can earn up to 5 Starpoints for every eligible $1 spent at SPG hotels and resorts —that's 2 Starpoints per dollar in addition to the Starpoints you already earn as an SPG member. You'll also earn 1 Starpoint on all your everyday purchases, such as gas and groceries. 4 To start getting more Starpoints for your next getaway, apply by 07/31/2010. Sincerely, The Starwood Preferred Guest program . P.S. Pay no annual fee for the first year.

T&C's:
. Terms & Conditions 1. Offer not available to existing Starwood Preferred Guest (Business) Credit Cardmembers. To be eligible, Cardmember must charge $1,000 of eligible purchases to the Starwood Preferred Guest (Business) Credit Card during the first three months of Cardmembership. Cardmembership commences on the date the Card application is approved. 30,000 Starpoints will be credited to Cardmember's account 8 to 12 weeks after the $1,000 spend threshold is reached. Offer expires 07/31/2010. Eligible purchases do not include cash and cash-equivalent transactions (including balance transfers, convenience checks and cash advances), interest charges, fees and purchase credit adjustments.

Anyone else get it? Is it targeted?
I've had my first CC for barely a couple months, is it worth my time filling in the forms?
Personal card
Business card.

Beware of the SPG Business card.
A number of people have emailed me this week that they were F/R'ed right after receiving it!

I would go for it!
My first Amex card came from an offer they sent me. At the time I had no open CC's at all!

And I truly do like the way AMEX calls you "aussiebochur"  ;).

Not sure you really should be afraid of a F/R if you dont even have a card open with them. Max is they'll take it away and your back we're you started. And again, they are offering it to you vs. you applying for it.

 although I agree with You that he should Go for it, I disagree with you about them sending it and his not asking

 Plenty of people get targeted and receive Pre Approved letters, which really are anything but that. Ive read posts elsewhere where those who received such letters and applied were in the end Denied a CC even thou they were told they were Pre-Approved

 So in the end it seems it doesnt make a difference to the Issuer and they all see it as if there was nothing sent to the person and handle it as if the person is applying on their own, just some very cute way to get someone to actually go ahead and apply in the end
