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?
you got 15K after 1st purchase? not 10K? (usually it's 10 after 1st purchase and 15 after $15K) in which case they should have matched you 20K not 15.

in answer to your question, IME you will get the (2nd) bonus, but obviously not by calling to ask for it. it should post on its own

You're right, my mistake.  I got 10k after $1 and then they matched me by giving me 20k after $4500 spent.
in answer to your question, IME you will get the (2nd) bonus, but obviously not by calling to ask for it. it should post on its own.
So I should continue trying to spend the $15k.  It is going to take some effort and if I wasnt getting the 15k bonus I wouldnt get close but if there is a chance I can still get the 15k then I will try.

i haven't had experience with SPG in particular, but with other cards where stuff was added as an 'adjustment' the underlying promo stayed the same.
if you wannt to verify; look how the 20k are labeled, as well as call amex and ask (without mentioning any matching or anything) to just tell you what your signup/spend bonus is.

I just applied for the SPG Consumer Amex yesterday while simultaneously upgrading a card to HH AMEX for 60,000 points. Got approved for the HH instantly but I didn't get an instant response about the SPG card. The app status still says "In progress" Is it worth it to call and ask to push it through or wait it out for their decision?

P.S I have an SPG Business already open for 2 years and I opened and closed a spg consumer card 2 years ago.

Update: I hit my personal max. If I close a biz card he will send it to recon.
I have a personal I would prefer to close. What's the chance that will be enough?

is it weird that when i applied for my starwood card with 30k bonus, no spg number with that, and an already open starwood card- that they wud combine my spg account? On my spg account i have "Earn    +10000    08/05/2011    SPG AX 1ST PURCHASE (AX)" and that must be from spending on my new card...?

Nope that makes sense for them to try and combine it.
So you have 2 of the same SPG card currently open or you have a consumer and business card currently open?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Nice, I guess that's confirmation that the current deal is churnable.
They didn't ask why you wanted 2 of the same card open at the same time?
I take it you didn't spend the $4,500 yet?

I know you don't always buy into what the CSR says but when I tried matching for the spg I got awhile ago they told me it's for new accounts only but if I wanted I could apply for another one and get the bonus without cancelling my old card. Never did end up applying tho.

Points from last time?  Did you not get the signup bonus for your first SPG card?
Bonus points can post before the statement closes, so 3 days after a first purchase would make perfect sense.

hmm this arises and interesting point. I applied for my wife back when it was 10k first purchase and then 15 after 15k in spending. Called them to match to this one and they said jump in the lake...maybe I could reapply while she still has this one open...?

a few months ago i got a starwood card and i never got my points and i desp needed them- so they added it to my account manually. But i guess its from this time- which is kinda nice and fast!
