Can't post referral links here. Just go to the referrals page.

Aren't our referral links good for any personal card (not business cards)?

Any personal card.

I should have clarified- the 75k is personal, only, correct? Business bonus is lower?

Look at my previous post. I just added a snapshot.

Doesn't answer my question. I see 60k on the business premier and 70k on the business performance. Are you saying that those are 75k for you?

I was incorrect. I have exactly what you have. I made the mistake of reading various travel blogs and didn't fully investigate. I just clicked on a couple of the links and saw the 75,000.

I've edited my previous post.

Question regarding referrals - I applied last year and was approved for the 80K offer for the Performance Business Card. Met minimum spend and am waiting for the points to post to WN. Need to get 40K more to get CP. The public offer is only for 40K points but it's 75K if its through this referral offer. Using my Performance Business credit card, I was able to generate my own referral link.

Can I apply for the Plus Card with this link to get the 40K + 35K offer + an additional 10K for the referral? In the past I was able to refer my wife for the Marriott Credit Card and get 20K Marriott points for the referral. In the current case, I would be referring myself. Any data points?

DP from 2 years ago, so perhaps there is one more recent, but it worked for me. I had a personal Premier card that I grabbed the link and saved it. I then closed that account and two days later signed up for a Plus with my own referral link. I did in fact get the points.

Good luck!

Thanks for the DP. And that's an even more extreme use case than what I was considering in that my referring card will still remain open and its going from a Business to a Personal.

On a different note: If someone is in the same boat as me (received sign-on bonus from one card and now planning to apply for a second to get the CP) we could swap (use each other's) referral links.

Send me a PM.

If I don't hear anything by end of the week, I'll go ahead and use my own. I want to ensure I have the CP by spring break.

Sounds good in theory but then you would have to put your complete trust in strangers to reciprocate.

It would be interesting to know how many people "take you up" on your offer.
