AMEX once lifetime sign-up bonus question

Hi, I've had the AMEX PRG in the past and closed it. I haven't had the regular Gold. Now the Gold is a different card with different categories. If I apply, will the sign up bonus count or is that considered the same product?

Nvm, found it. Sad.

 

Welcome offer not available to applicants who have or have had this Card or the Premier Rewards Gold Card. We may also consider the number of American Express Cards you have opened and closed as well as other factors in making a decision on your welcome offer eligibility.

Did you receive a SUB when you got the PRG? How long ago was it? Someone else here said they recently got the new Gold and was told they’d get the bonus even after previously having the PRG.

On my application said I would get bonus but when I was approved had no sub , different people at Amex gave different answers in the end I got no sign up bonus. I had .org maybe three or four years ago . For what its worth that my personal experience with Amex once in lifetime language.

Re: AMEX once lifetime sign-up bonus question

AMEX does occasionally put out a promo that doesn't include any lifetime language, and they aren't always targeted.

 

There is also some emperical evidence that in AMEXland "lifetime" translates to 7 years but that should be at best viewed as a YMMV.
