I was upgraded to the platinum a few months ago. They gave me the $400 bonus, but then promptly took their annual fee, so it was net 0 for me. I'll have to think carefully about this next year. I am charging about 15K/month on this card. I don't feel that I owe them an annual fee.
Did they still give u any welcome bonus points?

I did. I ended up having to call 4 times total, and it took 5 weeks. Very annoying.
Oh man, that sounds horrible.

I already have SPG gold currently, but didn't manage to renew for next year.

Wondering whether I should call in now and get the biz plat benefit applied to my account. This way, I won't have to worry about my status dropping out for a few weeks.

welcome bonus business platinum is $750 worth of MR points right now with referral - this is on top of the $150 referral bonus for the referrer - referred a friend last week!

Thanks for the info!

Hi Seks, just curious, how long was the wait to reapply since you last cancelled the Biz Gold card? thanks

How do you tell from the account transaction summary which referral you got your bonus points from. I've referred more than 1 friend and family to apply and when the 25,000 bonus came through it just says "bonus points" with no further detail.

Does anyone know when the 200 dollar platinum card travel credit will be available for use as 2018 has already stated but I don’t see the 200 credit yet a viable for platinum card

I self referred from Biz Plat to Biz Gold. I got my referral bonus instantly, but no sign of the welcome bonus from the Biz Gold. It's been a month since I hit the spending target.

Am I out of luck?
