Had a Biz Platinum not too long ago... did a chat on AMEX card application site with the info and the chat rep mentioned that getting a bonus on a biz card would not impact getting one on a personal card.... tempting!

Most here own some sort of an AMEX card earning Memberships Rewards, so it looks a lot of people will be out!

"Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card account within the last 90 days."

Good Luck to all those who apply! Singapore Suites are gonna be filled with Flyertalkers lol

Applied & approved! What a splendid find, thanks! Luckily I had cancelled my PRG about five months ago, so I should be getting my MR points soon enough

The very reason why I closed my PRG after I got the reward I wanted out of them. These 100k offers show up out of nowhere and either you're ready or you're not. But they don't seem to stick around for long.

Tempting, but hopefully no one receives a FR trying to meet spend

The only card I have that gets membership rewards is the business gold reward card. Have had it for over a year...i am assuming that there shouldn't be an issue with me getting this plat card with the signup bonus? I already applied and got approved, just wondering if i'll be in for a fight or not. Took screen shots.

Just be aware of this --- Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card account within the last 90 days.

Hopefully you get them if they were simultaneously opened.

I got it - I haven't had a personal gold or platinum in over 12 months. I do have a business plat but the Amex terms always spell out that you must not have had a consumer version (for consumer card) or business version (for business card) within the last 12 months to be eligible so I should be fine. I am a little surprised I was approved since I just did a mini app-o-rama last month (including an upgrade from Business Gold to Business Plat for another 25,000 MR). This was too good to pass up, though. Instant approval!

Got it to show up for me after clicking into private browsing. That tells me my account is likely NOT targeted. I would take the chance and fight it, but I just applied for an Amex HHonors card in November and not convinced its worth it. I also have the PRG and SPG cards. Hmmm . . .
