Gold Business 75k w/ $10k spend - Not targeted expires 6/26/12

Just found a link for a 75,000 point bonus for the Business Gold card.

https://www262.americanexpress.com/b...ly/44060-286-0

I just got one and confirmed the 75,000 points with $10,000 spend in 4 months and first year fee waived.

Does this effectively mean you can get the Biz Gold card today for 75k points, canceling 6 months from now and then apply again 12 months after canceling?

The min spend is a little high for me right now.

What do you see that suggests this interpretation?

Technically, that is what it means... churnable every 12 mos.

If I received the personal gold card (w/ 75k points) less than a year ago, I should still be eligible for this, right?

That's how I read it. Unfortunately, I closed out my Bus Gold (which came with 75k points) in March, so I'm not eligible.

Personal cards should have no bearing on eligibility for the bonus.

So if I have a Personal Platinum Card account that is currently open, but NOT a Business Gold, Business Green or Business Platinum Card account, I should still qualify for these points?

Edit: Nevermind. Already answered above. Thanks Mia.

Anyone know the rule on getting 2 AMEX cards at once? Thinking about signing up for this one (business card) and then I got an offer mailed to me for a personal card with 50k bonus points w/ 1k spend and no first year annual fee.

Will AMEX generally approve a personal and business card? Any strategies? Apply both back to back or wait a few days between apps?

Thanks in advance!

Generally Yes, YMMV, I like to apply at the same time and hit the submit button at the same time. Many people have reported that it doesn't matter. Call me superstitious.

I currently have the Platinum Business CREDIT card. I would assume I still qualify since I have CREDIT and not charge card currently on the business side.

My credit card version has $0 annual fee and is no longer offered - I have had it for about 10 years.

It currently is branded on the web site as Business Membership Rewards® Card with a $75 / annual fee but when I login to my account it says "Platinum Business Credit Card". I have been grandfathered in.

Thoughts? Their wording specifically says "Platinum Card®" so I take that as they are specifically referring to their charge card which goes by that name.
