Anyone have luck churning the card?

Don't know if I should risk the hit... (applied for Venture with it's 3 hits)

Forgot to mention that I canceled it over 60 days ago

10k spend kills the deal, I like the hit and run signup bonuses.

Whoops, my bad, confused the 2.

Should I even bother trying to churn if it's been less than 30 days since I closed the account?

YMMV.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I've had the card a few times in the past already.  The fee is always the same, $450, refunded if canceled within 60 days of billing or prorated after that point.
No problem getting the points each time.

so if i open the account spend 1k in the first month then cancel the card after i receive and pay the first bill will i still get the points at a later time assuming i have another card opened?

I applied for Platinum on January 28, Starwood and Gold on February 8, spent, earned and closed 30 days later. I also applied for all 3 Citibanks in February and got United Chase card this month. I’m afraid if I take another swing at Platinum this month, I will get too many credit inquiries. How long does Amex hold a grudge if they give me that “too many inquiries”? Is it just another 30 days and worth taking the chance? Or better to stay put and not overdue it?

If I risked 3 hard pulls for the cap1 offer, I'd risk 1 for 50k MR.

Okay, so my question is if Amex says no because too many requests, how long does it take them to forgive you so you can apply again? 30 days or more or YMMV?
