I can't think of any case when someone on here has succeeded at improving an Amex signup bonus after applying.
I did, for the blue sky. I got a series of targeted mailings, for (I think) $200, $250, $300 and $400 worth of points, each a week or three apart. When I got them again, I waited until I got the $400 offer again, and then applied. I got a better offer and the card in the mail the same day. I called, got the 'we'll investigate' lip service, but when the bonus posted, I got the better offer. I did not get the better intro intestest terms, though, not that I cared.
