Postby craigm1 » Wed May 29, 2013 6:57 am

I was looking into the SPG Amex card yesterday it was a 25k bonus I figured I would wait till aug seems like they raise it to 30k each year, but now I see it's only 10k is this what they normally do???

As a current Amex member, you're only supposed to be eligible for the 10k offer. Open the offer in an incognito window and the 25k offer will appear.

It looks like your in the a similar position to me I have the Blue cash 5% drug,gas,grocery and us bank cash+ I use the restaurant cat.
I was thinking I would pump all my 1% cat. through the starwood have about 1k of bill pays a month and other charges. It seems like every summer they increase the bonus to 30k thinking of waiting. Is this the strategy you use.

That sounds like a good plan for you, but no, that is not the strategy I use. I'd love to share what I do, but it would take wayyy too long to explain.

Short story is that I shouldnt have applied for the card when I did. Its a good card but I can get 5% on all my purchases(and more!) with the TY Preferred promo. I basically only use it for amazon payments. I should have waited to apply when the TYP promo ended.
