So possibly this just means you can't have an account open when applying for a second one, and can't ask for an upgrade to a 50K bonus on a card you have open that only had a 20K bonus with the app you used ?
Actually if you click on the "Pricing and Terms" icon on the landing page, the pop-up window will say the following under Welcome Bonus:

"Premier World Miles & More MasterCard cardmembers will receive 35,000 bonus miles upon the first use of your new Account for a purchase within the first 90 days and after the annual fee(if applicable) has been paid."

So even if they disallow the bonus 30K after the $5K spend because of the first-time verbage, you may have a case for these 35K.
