I re-applied for plat twice, once more than 30 days after opening first one but less than 30 days after closing, and once again 30 days after closing date.
Each time, I got a letter from AMEX that the request was cancelled because:

Thank you for your recent application for the Platinum Card.  It is our pleasure to service your request for an American Express card.  However, our records indicate that you have recently submitted more than one application for American Express card(s), therefore this request has been cancelled. Your original application(s) has been reviewed and we are happy to inform you that you were approved!  Your new card(s) has been sent to you and, after calling to activate, you may begin using the Card(s) immediately and start enjoying all of the benefits of Cardmembership.

[I might add that right after getting the second denial, I applied for Gold and got instant approval.]
My question:
Should I call up to have this reconsidered, or do I run the risk of waving a red flag which will prevent me getting the bonus again.
Thanks.

The same thing happens to my husband.  We don't want to take the risk of waving a red flag, so we didn't call.

Seems to be YMMV.  No idea why some people can get 2 at the same time, others post they get another after a week, others after 30 days, and others can't get a 2nd for longer.

Can't hurt to call though and tell 'em the other card was closed and you regretted your decision to close so you reapplied...

Bottom line, if we apply for new Amex now, is the strategy to do 2-3 browswer method because risk not so high (juust getting declined on one) or are we concerned of sounding the alarms and just go for one?

In the Amex gold 25k forum (sorry dont know how to link threads ) they seem to be saying that they were able to get the miles sign up bonus even when they already had an active gold card. Does anyone have any experience or info with the platinum card ?

I got the same thing. It seems they don't do a credit pull for this. Still worth to call in which case they'll do a credit pull? What if they say they'll just reopen old card again (it has been more then 60 days)? Can they do that?

I searched but couldn't find the answer.

Amex's terms clearly says the offer is 'available for first time American Express Cardholders.' As I'm sure most on this site have had multiple Amexs, is this simply not enforced?

I called and they said its only if you have an existing charge card. I currently have the Gold (from a previous DD promo). Will it work for me?

Ok, I called, and rep said that the system was automatically cancelling the requests because of the closeness between applications. So she cleared out all my applications besides my most recent one, and had that approved! 50K, here we come!
Thanks Dan, and good luck to anyone who needs to call AMEX to do the same!

The number at the top of the online rejection letter was 800-525-3355.
I called up, it sounded like the Platinum Cardmember line, they transferred me to new accounts.
So I dont have a direct number.
