No need to close the Platinum.
Gold and Platinum are 2 different products and don't affect each other.

Interesting, because I spoke with a rep today and she told me that its the same...wondering if she didn't know what she was talking about

I am sure this is the wrong board, but my wife got the lucky 150K with 15K spend offer from AMEX Business Platinum. Can I sign up for the card online using her code or does the card have to be in her name to use the offer code?

The business name could have changed from the one it was sent to.

Chances are that it's mailed to a personal name, but that can be changed online as well

It was mailed to a personal name. Do I just use my name or my business in the online application?

If I received a code for 100k in the mail, can I use that code for second application for family member on the same day?
Personal or Business?
Personal.
It can be reused multiple times.
Is there a known max? Can I use 10 times?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Im fairly new to this. Can I use the same AMEX Plat RSVP code (100k/3k spend) for myself and my wife. I am just unfamiliar - can it be done once online and once on the phone for another person? TIA
