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.

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!

It shouldn't have taken a few months to post, so I'd assume these points are from the new card.

When logging in to my wife's Amex Starwood account online it seems that the referral deadline has been extended from August 10th to August 18th.

Did anyone have success applying for the personal and business?

I used the 3 browser method and was approved for the personal but not the business.
When I called up they informed me that since I already got approved for the personal the business was denied.

I asked him to reconsider but he said he can't and I can try again in 90 days.

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks

Once you receive the card, go to Americanexpress.com/activate; at the end of the process it will let you create a login profile.
