Does it always take Amex so long? Mine from 1/10 are still pending...

there are reports that they do but do you really want to risk it for 100k points?

DH got approved for the Gold card. $1000 purchase was posted on Jan.10 but no points yet. Why did you guys here get the points so fast?

Of course, maybe AmEx has made things more user-friendly, but that's not real likely either.
I am attaching a screenshot

I guess Amex has changed their ways. Thanks for clarifying ukinny! The days of haggling with Amex over bonuses may be over! Congrats to those that got in on the deal. I was fully expecting Amex to not honor this and everyone would have to fight for their points. Good news indeed.

Got the $200 united gc credit back already.

Congrats to all the people who got in on the deal!

I'm one of those folks who semi-recently had another AmEx PRG card hoping to fall through the cracks of the T&Cs.

Has anyone who got the "You're not eligible" secure message while also confirming the "You're eligible!" over the phone get points?

edit: I guess a PM would be the appropriate way to answer if anyone has had any luck!

Same thing here. Yes via phone, No via secure message. I do not really know what to make of it? Is it worth spending 3000 USD to see what happens?

Transaction was posted on 1/11 or occurred on 1/11?

I called Amex today to verify the sign up bonus and it is real, 100K points after 3K spend during the first 92 days.

Also my American Airlines reimbursements have already posted. Loving this card.
