On reddit people say that you can MS for the Biz card – it’s only the linked personal card that people were getting shut down for. Personally I wouldn’t risk it though.

I MS’d for the Bus Plat, 100k recieved and no freeze. YMMV but I think it’s safe. =)

If I got the business platinum last year October, got the sign up bonus and canceled the card, can I sign up for this card again and get the bonus? Sorry I’m not very up to speed on this. Do business cards now have the once in a lifetime bonus requirement as well? If so, when is it effective from?

All business cards have had the once-in-a-lifetime language for a bit.

If I close this card in a year, and I still have these MR points, can they still be transferred to transfer partners? Which cards must I have in order to be able to use these points at transfer partners?

I don’t think you can PC a business card to a personal card. But you can apply for the Everyday card (or any other MR-earning card) to keep your MR active.
