    I have been able to churn the Amex PR Gold once. My wife did it with the Plat. However, it was a two or three year period between cards.

    I was tempted to sign up for this offer but after reading it states in the T&C that it is only good for first Amex holders. The language is slightly different from the other links that say first time platinum holders. Any experience on how amex will respond/honor it? They also have different wording elsewhere about first time consumer charge cards too. I saw it on the referral links to get the PRG.

    There is one more aspect to this info that I failed to mention. SPG normally gives only one bonus per cardholder. However, Ingy reported on his blog that SPG indicated to him they would give the new bonus when they were promoting the 30000 offer in 2010. That is why I jumped in. I am confident y'all now have full disclosure about my churn. I apologize for taking three posts when only one would do.
