The business 30K application is showing 10K+20K at front page, but once you click Continue, it'll revert back to the old 10K+15K offer, what's going on?
From AMEX:
"We are currently experiencing some issues with our landing pages and applications for both the Consumer and Small Business Starwood Preferred Guest Limited Time Offer. We are working with our tech teams to update the language on the pages ASAP and will notify you when the fix has gone in. We apologize for any confusion or issues that this may cause. Importantly, Prospects who are approved for the offers will receive the 30k points if they qualify (this is just a text error on the pages). Thank you for your patience!"

1)Has anyone successfully closed their spg card recently and signed up again and got approved? please write  how long after closing did you apply 
I've gotten 2 business SPGs simultaneously and got 10k for each no problem in the past.  Also did consumer and business SPG 30K last year successfully.

Can I apply for the business card without having an official business?

Also, if churning, should I put in my SPG number?

I just received 5,000 points in my account with a description of "SPG AX LOYALTY BONUS-ALL."
What could that be for? I recently had an approved referral, but he did not even receive his card yet and the terminology does not sound like it came from a referral. Would be nice to receive a pure "loyalty bonus" as well.
Thanks.

Also, if churning, should I put in my SPG number?

I too am curious regarding this.  I want to apply for both the SPG Consumer and Business Card.  I just made an SPG account on the Starwood website, and was given a number.  Should I put this number on my applications?  On just one?  Both?  Neither?

Say I don't put it on any application, will I end up with 3 accounts and then be able to merge them?

Lastly,  Thanks to Dan, since this past March 2011, I have successfully gotten a Delta Skymiles Gold Card, Platinum Card, and Premier Reward Gold Card.  All are still active (though I am planing on canceling them).  I want to ideally apply for the SPG Consumer, SPG Business, and Gold Business in the next week or so.  I am becoming rather apprehensive with all this F/R Talk.  Do you think I will be fine if I go through with it?

I'm curious too. Did you do a double browser app for the Business and Consumer last year Dan? Did you leave the SPG account number field blank?

So is the consenus to put the same Starwood account number everytime you apply for a SPG or to leave it blank?

If there is any further information you may want to know to better give me your evaluation, please do ask. (Modified version of my original post.)

I'd really appreciate it if someone could address my earlier post.  I was hoping to apply for the cards today or tomorrow (sooner the better).  Thank you!

I just applied for both the SPG Consumer and Business using the 2 Browser Trick.  I got pending decisions on both.  So I called 1-800-582-6471, and the representative just approved both applications, no questions asked.  I didn't put in my SPG number on either application, so we'll see what happens in regards to that.  Maybe they'll give me two new accounts and then I'll merge them with my original after I get the promotional points?

Anyway, thank you, Dan!

I recently signed a relative up for the SPG consumer with a 10k referral bonus from my account, and now I'm having trouble getting her matched to the 30k offer. Several rejections via SM to cobrand rewards (even 2 from one CSR) and one over the phone. They all say, different promotions for different times. My most recent attempt is an SM to social media facebook. We'll see if that works.

I had the original offer of 15k and 10k after $15k spent in 6 months. Then after I had spent 5000+ in 2 months I SM'd and asked them to match to the new 30k offer which they said ok to and gave me the additional 15k right away.  Do you think there is any chance that I will get the 10k if I reach the 15k spend threshold within 6 months too?
