from the site:
I got word that American Express would be bringing back the 30,000 point signup bonus for the Starwood co-branded credit card beginning Tuesday, August 7th.

Two summers ago American Express introduced a 30,000 point signup bonus on their Starwood cards for the first time. They repeated it in 2011.

30,000 points may not seem like a ton in a world of 50,000 and 100,000 point bonuses. But Starwood points are the single most valuable currency there is, in large measure due to their flexibility.

TRUE
been waiting on the 30k bonus to return.

"Reconsideration line and negotiate with them about getting that SPG AMEX Personal (866) 314-0237"

this number sucks. I got some desi who said she was powerless to approve applications & couldn't transfer me to somebody with juice.

anybody got a direct line to an actual credit analyst?
i got the old "Your application is pending further review."
called 877-399-3083
and the Indian lady said my card has already been finalized which from what she told me means it has already been approved but now there is no way to expedite shipping so i will not get it for about 2 weeks

I was told on my recently approved Amex blue card to call card replacement services the day after it is approved and they will cancel the card in transit and expedite one that will arrive in 24-72 hours. The number for that if you wanna try is: 800-992-3403.

amex is one of the worst when it comes to reconsideration. because even though they have humans working there, they have no power and just says YOU HAVE TO WAIT for the system!
Chase is truly the best( I love you chase)

Why exactly? If done properly and if the system is not abused and used for points, then there is no reason for anyone's accounts to be banned. I have done A-->B, B-->C, C-->D, D-->E, E-->A for a long time. Different People +SSN for each account and Kept the payments below $400 at a time and not had a problem. Yet. Smilie


Now if people want to do $1k transfers A-->B and B-->A, then yeah...sure. laugh out loud

After I clicked the link in wiki, I didn't see a 30k promotion, there's only a 10k promotion. Where is the link to the 30k promotion? Thank you.

Based on the fact that Amazon is not stupid. If you send money to a friend/spouse etc and then they send the money back to you, Amazon WILL/CAN detect this.


Many people have had their accounts shut down because of this. If people want to use AP, do it smartly. Don't ruin it for the rest of us.
