So if there is only $4500 spend there will be 0 bonus MR ? When does it start when card arrives or when approved ?
I don't know the numbers specific to your SUB, but it's all or nothing. You met the spend requirement or you didn't. Pretty clear cut. Any spend will obviously earn the standard rates as per usual, regardless of bonus. Clock usually starts from approval time, but that varies by bank.

January 1st is my assumption, based of other Amex yearly point things.

similar question: is there any benefit to any Amex card (business or personal) over the chase cards? Can someone name one benefit Amex has over chase?
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Loaded question, and a bit too general to answer. Return protection is on example.

Just the different way each goes about dispute resolution is a game-changer, in Amex’s favor

So while UR points are more valuable than MR points, for big business type purchases you will consider Amex bc of their return and dispute benefits? How often will these benefits come up for you ? :o

Anyone had any luck getting this sign up bonus?
When I click on the link to sign up I see the offer but when I sign into my account I don't have any sign-up offer at all.
