General rule has been that you're not eligible if you've held a charge card product in the 90 days before application.

Has anybody had luck getting AMEX to match this offer if you were approved for the same card and points but with a higher spend requirement? We got this card 2 weeks ago with a $5K spend requirement.

Just to refresh my memory. A charge card is one that has to be paid off in full each month right? The SPG is not such a card.

Correct. Charge cards include: Green, Gold, Premier Rewards Gold, and Platinum.

(and I guess Zync, from the previous post.)

Just got a Platinum card last month during the 100k public bonus. Wish there was some way I could get this bonus as well

This bonus was available last month during the Plat 100K as well ... you just chose the Plat over the PRG

Targeted American Express PRG 50,000 on $1000 spend

I just checked creditcards.com and it showed an offer for AmEX PRG 50,000 MR on $1000 spend..

I checked yesterday and there was no offer for PRG only the regulars:
45k Delta Gold
250 BCP
150 BCE

I currently have the Business Platinum and the BCP and looking to add the PRG and the Hilton surpass (went I was before the devaluation). Is this the best offer out there right now? any chance we will see a 75k bonus offer in the next couple of months?

Public offer, almost surely not. I had a 75K targeted offer last year. you may get one, but it's luck of the draw, as far as I know.

Offer is no longer available... I just tried - it shows you that message after you actually try to "apply" for it.

Any other links for the free first year?

I was offered this deal, but when I tried to apply, it said it was no longer available?
