    I applied for this card yesterday, and UPS delivered it via overnight express. I didnt request rush service. Very surprised and happy! Didnt know any credit card arrived the next day after approval.

    That is strange. I've only experienced that with my Platinum Amex. The SPG Amex came regular snail mail.

    This is my first true AMEX card. I was blown away when it arrived. Like, less than 24 hours after I was approved.

    KrissyK90, if I may ask.... Did you have the SPG AMEX before the Platinum AMEX? If so, did you apply on your own for the Plat, or did you receive an invitation from AMEX? Ive heard different opinions on the matter (most likely way to get approved) and just wondering what your experience was. Thanks.

    The Platinum Amex was my first Amex card and I did not receive an invite. Then I got the SPG Amex through a referral.

    That is a nice card for the First One,, getting ready to drop the Gold Business, they had a promotion,

    SPG is a great card also, they give you 5,000 extra miles for each 20,000 to AA, and a few other airlines.

    They do this for all airlines. If you transfer 20K, Starwood gives you an extra 5K for each 20K. For a few airlines with bad transfer ratios (UA, for example) that's still a bad deal, but Starwood always gives you 5K for each 20K.
