    Hello. MP has always been so helpful to me, so trying to pay it back. I applied for the SPG card a couple of months back for 25000. New bonus is 30000 for a limited time. I spoke with a very helpful AmEx rep today to see if I could be eligible for 30,000 if I met the minimum spend. The answer was "no", but he did immediately award 3,000 Starwood points to my account. This is definitely YMMV. I did not push at all and was pleasantly surprised--I would have IM'd or tweeted AmEx if phone rep hadn't been able to accommodate.

    Thanks for sharing. Just to clarify, was the 3,000 points a "consolation prize" for missing the higher bonus, or something else?

    Hello MX: Yes, it was a "consolation prize". Since I opened the card over two months ago, and no minimum spend for the extra points, I thought it was very fair.
