As per Dan,
"Seat selection or upgrade fees from airline of your choice."

Make sure you select the airline first.

Don’t know where you are getting that from, Amex definitely does give the airline credit for seat upgrades.

Not sure where I got that from either. Thanks for clarifying.

Oh really? That sucks. Thanks for letting me know. Maybe I encountered this when I was researching previously. Maybe that's why I was excluding Amex cards in my mind. Looks like I need to do more research.

Have on my AMX acct a PRE APPROVED OFFER FOR A GOLD CARD  that I had a few years ago -NO mention of standard wording "if had this card before......

will I GET THE BONUS? Do not want to be approved and do the spending and pay the fee to be denied the 50k
i just did my 2nd delta 75k offer and it worked fine. but YMMV

TKS-- saw this on Dr. of Credit

Some people are seeing in their American Express login within the Amex Offers section an offer to ‘Go Gold’ and signup for the American Express Gold card. The offer shows them as ‘pre-approved’ and the terms show no lifetime language.

    Get a 50,000 points signup bonus when spending $2,000 within 3 months.

Some say to apply first then upgrade right away after approval.
You wont receive a bonus for a new platinum if you had in past a upgrade.

Flying on an Aeroplan award ticket today, and my flight is delayed a bit over 6 hours. Paid the taxes and fees with a Hilton Aspire card. Am I eligible for any reimbursement from Amex, or do they only cover if the whole ticket is charged to the card?

It first showed up for me a few days ago --Dr.  wrote a new round of offers -- do you see an expiration date ?-- I cannot find one

Like apply first and then upgrade same day? Will get the bonus on both this way?
