Awesome deal, but I'm going to pass for this time. Wife has the Plat right now which gets us the Centurion Lounge access and FHR benefits, and I'll probably be getting the Prestige soon while I still have my Citigold open, so there's need to have multiple premium cards.

does anyone know how to generate referral links (in my case, for spouse) for the 100k? looks like referral links are only 40k.

My Ameriprise Platinum free year is about to run out, meaning I'll be up for the AF so I might as well sign up for a normal Platinum (haven't had the regular Plat before) to get the bonus. I'd like to jump on this when it's available. Anyone have any experience applying for a regular Plat while holding a different version of the Plat? Is there an important order of operations here?

Got hit with a dreaded message - we've received your application, but we can't give you a decision right now.

Will be interesting to see - have opened a fair number of cards lately so could be reasonable for me to die a slow death.

Can't decide if it's worth it. Seems like this offer comes and goes (though not as frequently as it used to).

While I'd love the 100k AMEX, from a premium card standpoint I'm set with the Prestige and I'm trying to watch my 5/24 b/c I'd like to get the Chase Freedom Unlimited in the not too distant future.

That being said 100k AMEX would get me to the finish line for a 2 person 62.5 Delta One roundtrip I've been eyeing.

Did you check the status link? It's not uncommon to get that message for an Amex app, only to have a decision posted at the status link 3 seconds later.

It let me get the number online, so I can start spending on it but It won't let me activate it? Am i supposed to wait till they actually mail it out?

Excellent!

So glad I checked in--this one has been on my list.
Got the "pending" message but called recon right away.
They verified address etc and then approved.

So, I have the AMEX Ameriprise Platinum (nee fee card). Does that mean I am not able to get this one?
