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?

Well, I'm still not sure what the answer is....but I applied and was instantly approved.

What was really weird is I called Amex before and he said the application he's reading says in the terms that you'll qualify for the points so long as you've never been a 'platinum' customer before. The app I had (linked from DD) said "This offer is valid for first-time American Express CardŽ members only." He couldn't provide a link.

He said I should take a screenshot and use it to argue later if need be.

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.

I did the same thing but did not get instant approval? Did you? They said I would have answer in 24-48 hours.

I got instant approved, but that probably just has more to do with our respective credit histories than anything else.

My wife just took a last shot at Platinum card and also got the same "our records indicate that you have recently submitted more than one application for American Express card(s), therefore this request has been cancelled."

I had applied the same time for a Chase card so they won't see the inquiries of eachother.

The question is, if I wait out for the Chase response (wasn't instant decision) and it's after March 31, will Amex still accept a reconsideration if I have a reference number from before the 31st? That would allow Amex to make pull in new month for me and better my chances of acceptance. Otherwise, I would call Amex now to reconsider and the heck with Chase.

have people been successful using the plat card for coins from the mint and having it go thru as a purchase?

does buying gift cards with the plat also pose a F/R risk?

I guess i'll need to think of some creative ideas, if I even get approved, that is.

I think that this card triggers financial reviews.
I am on my second fr in two months
and 3 of my family members got fr'ed in the last 2 weeks.
Has anybody else had this experience???
1 of those family members was immediately approved but
two days later they froze all his accounts. I was about to
sign up for a few more accounts but I'm not going to because
I can't go through more financial reviews. :(

Not that I've heard of.
But often times when 1 family member gets an F/R then other family members will get an F/R as well.
You shouldn't have to go through more than 1 F/R in a year.  If you do try calling up your previous rep.
