Amex Application Rules

American Express restricts you to just one sign up bonus per credit card product. That’s once per lifetime. Even if you previously had the card and didn’t receive a bonus (maybe during your pre-churning days), you won’t be eligible for a bonus on the same card. Business and personal cards count as separate products. If you’re not sure which cards you’ve had in the past, there’s a way to check.

American Express also has some other restrictions on applications. You can only apply for two Amex cards every 90 days and you’re limited to a total of 5 Amex cards at a time. Charge cards do not count towards these limits.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

Some great increased Amex bonuses and definitely worth it if you’ve had your eyes on any of these cards. The Delta Platinum Business and SPG Business offers are the best we have seen. It might be worth waiting a couple of days to apply if you can use a friend’s referral bonus (Update: Offers are now showing through referrals) . We often see the same offer pop up through referrals soon after. Lifetime restriction applies to these offers, so many readers will probably be ineligible. Also pay attention to expiration dates on the offers. The SPG Business offer expires on 3.28 while the Delta offers go on until 4/11.

Let me know if you’re going for any of these cards!
