I applied for BCP through the 'corporate relationship' (or whatever it is called) link, and was told I was not eligible for sign up bonuses since I had a current or former BCP. This is true - I burned them on this card not too long ago, regrettably. So, instead, I opted for the Gold card, with benefits, since I will be doing some travel. That was approved (sans SS# in the app). Platinum was the only other option and that AF is too much to fade for someone with my spending.
I suppose I am happy for this, but I really should not be adding additional cards. This may well be the only one I add for 2020. My AAoA was just about to (re-)pass 6 years too. Done is done.
It is good to be back in the graces of America Express on a personal card level.
Congrats - it is a great card, assuming you travel, or have some plan for what to do with MRs! It's one of my two daily workhorses, along with PayPal MC.
Congrats on your Gold approval
