I plan on going on vacation in two weeks and i need about 18k spg points does anybody have an idea of how to get it
1. I used mine and my wife's  target red card already for the month
2. I dont have much available credit on my spg card to go on a spending splurge
the room cost about  $500/12k spg 
Whats my best option?? Buy points from spg? Broker? Pay for the room? Transfer from membership rewards?

Maybe a broker or flip your CL a few times to get the points.

HUCA Only restrictions are new card less than 60 days old cannot get CL from another card and card transferring CL must be >13 months old
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Sometimes they may want to do another pull, or if no pull done then they will want to. This way they will be merged into one.

New card will be a pull, but if your ate trying to shift credit because they told you you have too much credit, the restrictions on shifting are as hvaces42 said. No other restrictions

Too many Amex threads out there. Would ppl agree that using a RSVP for a targeted PERSONAL card is close to impossible as it has the persons name on it? Or are there easy ways around that?

If they can't look it up in their system, probably not.

If I have a Amex Business Plat offer without 12 month language can I get the bonus if I have one open or do I need to close the other one first? Different EIN numbers.
You may not hold me responsible for any actions taken that were recommended from my account or username.

If I bought a computer on a business gold can I close the card and still be eligible for the year warranty?
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill
