    Got the same today, question, how far apart does a person have to space their application for the business and personal card with Amex? Is there enough time to do both apps before the Sept. deadline?

    Found a Canadian and UK referral links. They are actually pretty good deals. I wonder if they'll work for US users too.

    (Edit: Tested the above links and learned that they will not generate referral bonuses for US residents).

    Is 30K SPG points a good intro offer? Anyone know what it normally is?

    30K points can also be quickly turned into 20K plus 5K when transferring to an airline leaving 10K for a room Award. Might make a really cheap weekend jaunt.

    Unfortunately, I have the SPG personal, and don't really need another Business Card.
