me and my wife each have our own personal amex platinum, each received with 125k+ points at signup and have accumulated multiple of that in points since, enough to cover 2-3 years of travel/vacations.
on the personal card we will downgrade one of the cards this year due to cost/value of keeping both.
i received now an offer for the business platinum with a 130k points signup offer. does it make any sense to add the business plat. at this time for the points alone?
(other benefits are not of real use or would be duplicate to our personal cards)
If you can do the spend req, it is a no brainer. Worst case keep it for 1 year and than downgrade/cancel.

was targeted for the 150k offer so took it and was instantly approved.

DP - no credit pull was done as they last pulled my credit 5 months back, so just used info on file.

I recently opened this card with the 10x on up to 15k spend at gas and groceries within 6 months. Is there an easy way to see my progress/how much of that 15k I've spent so far on this category?

I recently did a similar offer and I exported the data to Excel and used a pivot table. A bit laborious...but I am not aware of any better way to do it

Any threads discussing ideas on how to spend $15k without paying 3rd fees? Need some fresh ideas besides charity, tuition, shul membership, insurance, utilities, groceries etc..

I'm sure this has been asked before, but does the Platinum (biz Plat, actually) travel insurance (foreign medical bills) if the ticket was booked with miles and the taxes was paid with the Platinum card?

I know the terms says full fare charged, but does this count?

How are people using the new hotel $200 benefit?  Is there a market for selling them?  I have three cards and don't currently have a use for them.

Can a cancelled plat still get you into Skyclub? (and does the expiry date matter?)

I can't say it's still this way as I don't have any recent DPs (I rarely fly Delta anymore) but last I knew, cancelled worked fine as long as card had not yet expired.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Got the 100k offer to upgrade my gold to plat. After upgrading, is it instantaneous? Can I start the spending right away?

It didn't work for me.  They ran the card or called or something.  Somehow they realized it was not a valid card even though the date was ok.

If youre eligible for a SUB on the Plat sign up first then upgrade. Double dip.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Yes
Ok thanx.
Also, what happens with pending charges and offers? I got the offer for CLEAR and just used it yesterday, if I upgrade today would it still apply the credit ?

Got this too, even though I have one already. I also get prompted to add a BP (same offer) everytime I log in. Can I apply and get the SUB even though I have one already?

If there is no lifetime language that means I will get bonus even if received in the past?
