Im waiting till January to get a Platinum, however if they are potentially issuing January MSD cards would this apply to me since 2014 is already locked in? Or would I just get a December 2014 date since I'm not new to Amex.

If one applies during the middle of the year you'll be getting 2x$200 airline credits since they renew that benefit every calendar year.. So one will get a $400 airline credit during the first year of having the card!

You should wait until 1/1/15 to apply to be sure that your new account reflects as opened in January of your original Member Since year. I applied 1/27/12 for my Zync and it was correctly established as opened 1/1999 since 1999 is my MSD.

I chatted with amex a couple times with no luck . The last rep I talked to told me to expect new cards with 2014 MSD in 7-10 days . We'll see . The online account still says MS 2015 .
