Oh noes, not another Amex question.

I got Amex Green in Oct '12. I realized that should consolidate my spending and I should have gotten the PRG instead.

 

My question is: Should I wait for the upgrade when 13 months rolling around and would I get the sign-up bonus?

 

or

 

Apply now and get backdated making the PRG older than my Green Smiley Surprised, my BCE is older than the Green LOL.

Re: Oh noes, not another Amex question.

You will not get any sign up bonus or waived af for a PC.

It would be better to app for it IMO.

Will wait for the 3x CLI on BCE before apping I guess.

I app'd for the Green, instant approval. A month later I app'd and was approved for PRG with the 1st year annual fee waived and sign up bonus. I'm planning to cancel both once the annual fee comes due in a year.

Why wait 90 days?

 

Can I just app for prg and close green?

Oh okay, but I have the Green since Oct '12. 

 

Anyway, I think I will wait to see what I get from 3x CLI with BCE.

Re: Oh noes, not another Amex question.

I think I may be wrong. Just checked and I think it means if you have had another charge card within the last 90 says then u aren't eligible to get the signup bonus.
