Did you just send a message and list one of your other cards in the subject? My Gold card hasn't shown up on the AMEX site yet.

I only have Blue Cash with Amex so far (Gold card hasn't appeared online yet). Is it ok to select this blue card when sending the secure message or should I wait for the card?

Thanks!

I can't be certain. I can say that it was not an Asian name.

Is there an active 25k link? The one on page 6 takes me to a 10k offer when I click apply now.

My response was different. I emailed them last night after receiving the premier gold card on Tuesday. I didn't hear back until 4 today, saying they would need to research it. I applied under the 25000 points. I will update when I hear.
UPDATE----
Success for me! They will give me the extra 50000 when I spend the 1000.

Have you got your gold card yet? If yes, you can manually add to your account.
But if you are not, just email them with your blue cash card, but put your application reference number in the email and explain in the email that you have not got the card, but just see this ID bonus promotion and want to get it.

I did the same and got it.

Another positive data point. I applied last week from the link in post 168ish. Cleared the cookies but after the original offer screen of 25k it sent me to a 10k only bonus. Not really sure which one I ended up getting in the end. But I waited till I recieved the card since I don't have a login with AMEX, and then I sent a secure message and got the response most have gotten.

"You must spend $500 in eligible charges within the first three months of Card membership to qualify for 75,000 Membership Rewards bonus points. Bonus points normally are awarded 6-8 weeks after you reach the spend threshold.

At that time contact us again and we will gladly adjust your account accordingly"

So what is it they will post in 6-8 weeks or I need to contact them. Plan on contacting them after I hit the $500 though.

I think this is my last cc app for a while between the wife and I am having a hard time keeping up with all the credit cards.

4 AA
2 capital one
2 United
1 continental
and now an AMEX

One more +ve data point.

Good Morning AsanteSana,

I understand your concern regarding your bonus points and I will be glad to assist you today.

Please know that I have made an exception and issued 50,000 bonus points to your account on 5/6/2011, which is the difference between your promotion and the better offer. You have XX,XXX available points.

AsanteSana, I hope that this information is helpful and that I have provided excellent customer service to you. Thank you for being a valued Cardmember and for choosing the American Express Card since 2001. Have a great weekend!
Sincerely, Helpful Agent Email Servicing Team American Express Interactive Services


The agent, I believe, is from the North American Service Center

Correct - basically instant update to your DL account. I did this back in March and the 75K miles + 25K MQMs posted in however long it took me to log out of my Amex account and log into my DL one. My Medallion status updated on the DL site overnight.

Wait till you get the card so you will have the account number if you need to add that manually.

I can't decide if I want to pull the trigger on this one. I feel like I'm the kind of person who never gets the benefit from the company when 90% of people are posting that it worked for them (for example, I repeatedly got rejected from Citi business cards in my name as a sole proprietorship based on lack of actual business despite a score ~760). I tried calling amex to see if they could guarantee the 75k before I applied, but they couldn't help.

Anyone have any advice?
