when they put out the 30k spg offer in july i cancelled a couple spg cards and reapplied within a few days.      no way to know if the charge cards will work the same though.  and even if you're approved, not sure if they'll give you the 50k.
I've yet to here of anyone who didn't get points on an AMEX charge card b/c of a churn situation.

If it won't be 30 days anyway (as the 50k plat offer is going away) is there a point in me waiting another week?

The issue is that it takes some period of time for AMEX to realize the card is closed.  If you do it too soon you may get a letter saying you already have the card.
Then again I have had 2 of the same cards, so it's definitely a YMMV situation.
The period is very likely less than 30 days.  30 days is just what I tell people to be sure you don't get that letter.
Maybe it's 1 day, maybe it's 2 weeks.  Maybe it works in sweeps and there is no right answer?  Can't really tell ya'.
As long as you apply by the 03/30 though you shouldn't miss out on the offer, but you never know with AMEX.  Or go for it today and let us know...

I couldn't resist, so I applied for the Plat and the 25k gold. So far 6 apps today, 2 instant approvals.

Chaim applied for a plat card while he still had an active one and got a duplicate card rejection.
He canceled it, applied for a new one a week later, got approved, and got the 50K bonus again.

Nice. I'm hoping it's late enough, at least I didn't get an instant decline.

Recently applied and approved for the Chase Hyatt and planning on applying for the Chase CO 50k by the end of April.

Will applying for the Amex Plat 50k ruin my chances for the CO card, because I think I like the CO one better than the plat for my purposes?

Depending on whether Amex and Chase inquire with the same credit bureau or not. It typically varies by state.

Hard to know for me. Anyone know what they do in CA?
