Question Is it possible to earn miles for both a biz & personal card?

In an effort to maximize my future SkyMiles balance I've hopped on the WorldPerks credit card bandwagon. I signed up for the Signature card, spent the $1000 required and got my 25K bonus - easiest 25K I've ever made.

Does anyone know if I am also eligible for that same 25K bonus if I sign up for a business card as well? Also, would that give me another 80 points in the mountain of miles promotion?

Thanks!

With the DL Amex Plat you can have both a bus and personal. At 25,000 $ spent you get another 10,000 MQM's and there had been another 10k MQM's for 50k $ spent. There was also a 10k MQM anniversary bonus. So, with 50,000 spent on each of the cards you would get 50,000 MQM's and Gold status.

They also added a DL Amex 'Reserve' card that had higher totals. It is usually cheaper that doing an MR.

You get a bonus for each different card you get. The signature, the gold, the plat, etc...each one gets you the bonus miles etc....since biz and personal are also different, you can do each level again too....lots of miles!!

Wow, that's awesome. Have they always been this generous with their miles, or is this a last ditch effort by US Bank to ditch their inventory of WorldPerks miles? By signing up for 2 cards and spending $2,000 I'll get 54,500 miles (including the mountain of miles promotion)

Are there any other really easy ways to bank some WPs before the merger of the two loyalty programs?
