American Express Signup Bonuses which were Previously Denied are now Posting
[Update 3/11/19: A few people who didn’t get the adjustment yesterday are seeing it today. Additionally, the 20%/$100 Gold card restaurant benefit which is part of the signup bonus is showing as well for those who are now eligible. Again, not everyone is getting this adjustment, we don’t know for certain why some are and some aren’t.]
American Express shows a pop-up to indicate when you aren’t eligible for a signup bonus. Strangely, even when no pop-up appeared, they still have been arbitrarily denying the bonus. Today, many r/churning members are seeing their denied signup bonuses from months back show up automatically in Amex account.
I’m unsure if this batch of bonuses are only for those who filed cases with Amex or it’s for anyone denied who did not get a pop-up.
In late January, Amex sent out adjustments for other kinds of bonuses which were missing, but not for signup bonuses. Now, they’re correcting the signup bonus denial issue. Yay! Hopefully it’s showing for everyone, and hopefully it means that this won’t be an issue going forward, but we’ll have to wait on data points on that.
