Looked all over the board and couldn't find this; multiple bloggers have posted/tweeted about it today, so while it is supposed to run through, I believe, 3/14, you might want to jump in sooner.

Link, from which I removed the affiliate ID

Offer states, "Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product or any other Business Gold, Green or Platinum Card® account within the last 12 months", so buyer beware.

Good personal relationship with Amex - got a pending msg which remains after 4 hours.

Called CSR to offer any information they may need and was told if they need something theyll call me.

Guess Ill sit tight for now.

I want to apply very badly, but I don't think I can swing 10k in 4 months. Even with supplementing my spend, 2500 a month is a lot.

Same here. If it was 10k in 6 months I think I'd try for it.

I got the 50k MR Mercedes Benz PLAT card last month.

I've read that Amex may consider the MB PLAT card a different product than the regular PLAT card?

I would like to apply for this deal but would having the MB PLAT card disqualify me from earning the 75k MR points on this card?

That's a personal card, isn't it? If so, you should be fine - based on my reading of the T&Cs quoted - for this biz card. Only one way to know for sure, though.

Thanks, yeah, it's a personal card.

I wonder if I could get a definitive answer from an Amex CSR before I apply.

And especially before I go crazy trying to spend 10k in 4 months.

Ask them about using VRs to meet the minimum spend also, just to confirm.

No! Don't--that's a bad idea!

I've read posts on multiple forums that say biz PRG = FR magnet

not sure how true that is (no personal exp), but just a heads up

Some data points though I'm probably an odd case. Just applied and was given pending notice, called and was asked a few questions then approved and will be rushed the card. I'm 20, had an AoR in late Jan. Probably 9 inqs within 6 months (though not all TU; but some, since I recently got 3 Amex cards). AAoA of 0 yr 4 mths. Applied as solo proprietor. Excited to pound out this 10k spend!
