No. The AMEX system simply sees the charge and applies the credit.

I was thinking that must be the case. It seems really unlikely the Global Entry system would share with the cc company the name of the person for whom the application was submitted.

applied for both PRG and Plat and got approved for both. Didn't want to risk not receiving the bonus, so cancelled the PRG on day of approval.

I applied and was approved for the MB Plat in mid December.
Plat: $3,000 spending posted early AM 1/14 and 100K points posted ("earned" status" when I just checked (1/15 12:20AM EST) the points weren't there when i checked around 9PM.

I spend 1k on Gold last week and just confirmed bonus via SM. Points are already pending.

100k bonus for Platinum has been confirmed via SM as well. So this is really 154k MR
that is so awesome, I wish I did that too instead of listening to that one person on SD!!

Just to clarify, you're saying the points showed up and were subsequently REMOVED from your account?

I think it's technically correct that having the PLatinum blocks the PRG sign-up bonus. However IMHO these T&Cs have never been coded into the Bonus offers. AMEX keeps that language to avoid bonuses at their own will.

However if you have a good standing at AMEX and have a good amount of $$$ running through their cards they will be nice to you. I have been able to churn AMEX cards in 6 month or less

Has been pending for a few days now, but I am not worried. These should clear within a day or two. From what I have read so far, the extra 4k from the spending will post only after the statement closes.

If someone signed up for a plat card through this link, can they sign up for a gold elsewhere and get the bonus too, or no?

I have seen a few that were waiting for their transactions to post. I had the PRG active when I applied for this Platinum, but closed it after I received my new card (not that this would really qualify me for the 100K offer).

I completed the spend Monday morning, but my Sunday and Monday transactions are still pending. Should know in about 2 days if I get the 100K pts, but others are probably ahead of me.

Thanks! Would really love to hear what you have to say about this matter.
