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!
But you had cc's (credit score) before, right? I doubt my credit score has jumped from being non-exsistent to being good enough to be approved for an amex in a couple months. Could it?

Probably not from a low limit secured card.
Get yourself some store cards, spend money on them each month (even just $1), pay them off, wait half a year, and then you can probably get one.
It take a few months for some cards to even start reporting to the agencies.

Applied 7/6 for both cards for my wife.
Got approved for personal with $1500 temp. CL on SPG products, and got the 14 day notice for business.
The personal card arrived in the mail on 7/9 and the business card showed up today (14th)!!! Wohhooooooo!!

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!


Could it be because people are buying large amounts from the mint right away? Or are these people who didn't even get a chance to make a purchase yet?

Would it be better to spend the $1000 in day-to-day purchases than at the mint?

Also, I heard something about the fact that the very first purchase on a new CC shouldn't be done online... True or false?

Whoever got F/R'ed with this last offer please share your experience.

Obviously if you don't have the right paperwork for the FR, you should call and cancel the card before THEY close YOU down!

It has been reported that you may get the 30k bonus if you've had the card but cancelled it. Applies to both personal and business. As always, YMMV.

Dan reckons its not a big chance at all.

It's possible just like any churning is always possible because things slip through the cracks or you can make a big fight over it.

But generally speaking it's not officially churnable if you've ever earned the bonus.

My thoughts are that its a different bonus and the T&C are different in that it says you cant be an "existing Starwood Preferred Guest (Business) Credit Cardmember"
