My friend applied first time for platinum and for the Mercedes Benz platinum. And he got a minus on his rewards because both are the same product and you can't get both bonuses. Sounds interesting!
How recent was that?

Is there a way to tell how many points you got per each purchase (such as bonuses etc). If I go to Amex points it only shows how much points earned that month. Something similar to chase where it shows it under each purchase?
TY

Tried finding this, but did not have much luck... last year i did PGGM, but for now it seems like il need to purchase these delta GC. A few questions.
Do these need to be sent to the primary card name?
Do they need to be purchased as four separate charges, or as one $200 will also do it?
E-card works, or need to order the physical card?

TIA
no. yes. either
Yes that it had to be increments if 50? Or yes that 200 will work?

Four separate charges is the safest way to go.

The stupidity and lack of foresight of some forums on the internet takes ones breath away.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I just feel bad for n00bs who see something that everyone is going crazy over and don't understand the risk involved.

I don't think there is too much risk involved.  Last time a link was leaked, you were fine as long as you met the spend organically. Worst thing that happened was that the points were temporarily frozen while accounts were reviewed but again as long as there was no MS spend you were fine.
