Thoughts on Current PRG Bonus

Postby Wildcat_1 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 5:41 pm

Hi All

Being new to this I was wondering what everyones thoughts were on the PRG sign up currently ? I know its a little lite based on what I've read from others but when the 50k, 75k, 100, bonuses come around do you still get the first year waived or is that paid ? Similarly I assume the minimum spend also increases, in some cases dramatically ?

Thanks all just wondering whether to continue applying for this one or go for SPG and hold out hoping for a better PRG or Plat bonus

I'd go for that SPG if you want it anyway and wait with the PRG. With the PRG they do waive the first year, they do not waive it with the Platinum so keep that in mind (unless you appeal all the way to the EO and they waive it but I haven't honestly heard of anyone being successful with that). So assume with Plat you will pay 450 up front.

Grab that bonus while it's out there.

By the way you can still go for the PRG or the Plat too. You don't HAVE to wait if your income and profile support the cards.

99, when you said 'go for the bonus' were you referring to PRG or SPG ? Also for my reference, if I have PRG I cannot get the bonus for regular plat later but I could get the plat bonus on Mercedes Plat, correct ?

Thanks
