AMEX Green Lifetime bonus message :-(

I was pre-approved for the Green card @ 30,000 points, so I logged out and went into incognito mode and got 45,000 Points.....and it gave me the Lifetime Language .....

 

Oh well.

Re: AMEX Green Lifetime bonus message :-(

Since you had Green in the past it makes sense that it wouldn't be available again. Unless you receive a targeted offer or referral without the lifetime language.

Will a “self” referral work ?

I would say self-referrals are very dangerous at this point.

Re: AMEX Green Lifetime bonus message :-(

I wonder if since I’m an AU on my wifes Amex Green can I apply for my own card? I just want the 45K sign up bonus (SUB)

I'm thinking this will likely happen to me.  Had green back 97'-04' and cancelled it.  Still can't justify the gold, though. Smiley Indifferent

Based on everything I've heard about self referrals especially lately it's a very bad idea.

Could you not simply have your Wife refer you?

Pre-Approved AMEX Green - Pending

I was looking around was “Pre-Approved” when I logged into my account. Filled out the info, click submit, and it did the weirdest thing ... not an approval or a decline.
We got your application and need to process it.
Go to the Application Status website - it says “In Progress” - check back in 24 hours.

Any thoughts ?

Re: Pre-Approved AMEX Green - Pending

You decided to go for it without the SUB? 
Well, I'll be shocked if you have to wait the full 24 hours for the response, typically Amex is pretty fast on decisions regarding approvals. 

Got some pruning to do... No more new cards!
