Received my SPG card today. Signed up for 25,000 points offer. Call Amex
and requested an additional 10,000 points and a rep said he would send
my request to the marketing dept. Requested to speak to a Supervisor and
the request was approved right away and points posted today as well.

Always ask to speak to a Supervisor as initial rep is not authorized to grant
your request.

Any ideas on how to fund using credit card?

I was at the 4 CC limit so I chatted and cancelled 2 CCs.

Whenever I apply I get instadenied and receive this message when I go to check application status:

application cancelled:

The reason for our decision is that you have reached the maximum number and type of Cards that we will approve within the period of a few months. Please know that your prior application(s) has been approved and your Card has been sent to you. If you have not already done so, you can confirm you have received your Card at americanexpress.com/confirmcard or by calling the phone number on the back of your Card. You may then use your Card immediately and start enjoying the benefits of Card Membership.

How long does it take for Amex to realize you no longer haver 4 CCs?

If I apply for the card in a few days do you think I’ll be able to refer my wife by the end of the month to get the 35K signup bonus as well? Or does the refer a friend program take longer to set up? Also, think you could be approved for both personal and business this month? Thanks!

I got my card in September 2015 . Is it still worth calling and asking them to match

Called in trying to get matched to 35 k offer, I got the spg card 25 k offer 3 weeks ago. Cust. Rep said they are not zble to match offers. They can only do up to 3 k courtesy points. I asked for supervisor and I was immidietly given 10 k difference and 5 k courtesy points. Yes i got total of 15 k spg points. So happy. Amex has best customer service. I praise their customer service. Ask for the supervisor

Getting into the weeds. Wondering if I had the Business card before with one business entity. Anyone know if I have a chance at getting the Business Card again under a different Business Entity and EIN? or is the never again in lifetime regardless of business applied under? Thank you for any input you all can provide from your experiences.

Here’s my data point for getting matched, which was a failure, but also a funny interaction: http://www.thorpetravelsite.com/travel-blog/2016/3/a-frustrating-and-funny-chat-with-an-amex-rep

Don’t chat, call. My online rep told me that online reps don’t have access to courtesy points.

I can not understand why you were not matched. Did you ask to speak to a supervisor?

Mentioned that other customer have been matched. I think that you got a rep, who will

not budge from SOP. Call again. Do not chat. Call the Amex number on the card.

Does the 4 card limit for Amex cards include co-branded cards such as the Wells Fargo Propel? Thanks.

Hello everyone!

Just called the AMex Starwood Biz line and talked to some really nice guy named Erik. Told him I was hoping to get the difference on my SPG Biz card I opened up last week. He said if you have an RSVP code he would be able to give the difference in 72 hours but was still able to open up a case for the difference that would take about 2 weeks. He also looked into my account and saw that I just opened up the Personal SPG last month also and offered to open up a case on that account too. Erik called me back about 10 min later and had the best news ever that both cases were escalated to his supervisor and approved. I should see 10K on both accounts by next week.

Just called and received 3,000 courtesy points immediately. Rep said they would send an inquiry to the marketing department and I should hear something back in 2-4 weeks about getting additional points. Just approved for the card in late January and working on spend requirement.
