DW got targeted at a spend bonus on her biz plat. Maybe if they'd give us back the 50% rebate this would be remotely interesting.

Got an email saying that I’am entitled to 3M points back for 35% Airline bookings

https://www.dansdeals.com/credit-cards/earn-100000-bonus-points-amex-business-platinum-card/

Essentially, the first 50k is simply 5x, and the total 100k is 4x. Seems pretty weak for a massive minimum spend, no? Am I missing something?

I agree. 100k would be great, but not so hot considering the spending.

Hi - my wife has 200k MR points under her name - was trying to transfer to my account which has an amex plat on it to use for amex travel spend with delta as preferred airline and 35% bonus, but rep told me MR points can only be transferred to airline/hotel partner accounts with the same address or to another amex account with same name. If I add my wife as an authorized user on my amex plat and add that card to her account, will she be able to book with amex travel and get the same 35% bonus on those points? TIA

Thanks @Geshmak25 ! If I open a biz plat under her name but at a different address (address of business as opposed to home), can that card be on the same account to use the legacy points with travel bonus?

For those with weaker credit histories, a pull is very very relevant. For those with longer, healthier reports, less so, but even so, still not irrelevant.

Find me someone that was denied for an Amex for pulls?
Other banks as well will give the reason as too many pulls, while that's not even the reason.
ETA: I just luckily bumped in to this. Thanks @TimT
It's not about carrying balances.

Also, when people on this forum complain about getting denials from too many inquiries, I want you to remember this thread. Inquiries is almost always a BS reason.
