Will 2 of these Cards get you Double the 2 Points?

I have one of these cards for one business I take care of.

If I get another card (assuming I am qualified for it) for other business I own, am I able to get 2 points on the first $50,000/year spent on it as well as the other card?

Or is it just $50,000/Year X 2 points no matter how many of these cards I have?

Thank you.
MM

I logged into my SPG Business card online account and there was an offer at the top for 20k MR with $5k spending in 3 months on the Blue Business Plus. The link doesn't seem targeted, and I didn't see anything in the terms about it not being public.

https://www.americanexpress.com/us/c...us/index1.html

Expires 12/31.

Edit: Appears targeted. You have to log in to apply, and a friend got a "Sorry. this offer is no longer available" when he logged in.

Does this card no longer award 2x MR for a Simon Mall (not stores at Simon Mall)purchase? Heard Simon Mall no longer counts as minimum spend...

Eligible purchases do NOT include fees or interest charges, balance transfers, purchases of travelers checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Additional terms and restrictions apply.
This language has appeared in the terms of all USA-issued American Express cards for some years, but enforcement has evolved.

In private mode (IE) and incognito mode (Chrome), apply button redirects to log in with user ID. No option to fill out an application. After logging in, offer no longer available.

Thank you for the clarification. The offer is targeted. If I login using my own UserID I see "no longer available", but if I login using Ms mia's UserId the application is displayed.

Thanks for this link! I tried it after logging into my Amex Business Platinum account, and it didn't work. Undeterred, I logged into my Delta Amex Reserve for Business account, clicked your link again, and got the offer.

Yes, but I already have Blue Business Plus and wouldn't expect to be targeted with an offer for the same card.

i called the general application line 800-519-6736 at 2pm PDT, asked about the card was told there was no special offer available. I have called that number in the past and was told the same thing-- only the 0% balance transfer for 15 months is available via the phone.

There are two reports on DoC of phone in approvals on the 9th that occurred later in the day, so I called again after 4pm, this time i called the number on the application page 866-690-6736. The agent asked me my name/address and was able to locate a 20K/3K spend offer that I am eligible for. Yes, 3K, not the 5K on the current online app.

Did the app over the phone, but their system was down, so didn't get an instant response. Hopefully the app actually went through. I don't have any business cards with them at the moment, but do have a number of consumer cards.

Good luck, there was a person who applied for the other version over the phone and did not get the bonus.
