Amex Lifetime Restriction
UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CAN ONLY GET ONE SIGN-UP BONUS PER PRODUCT PER LIFETIME ON PERSONAL AND BUSINESS AMEX CARDS. HERE IS THE LANGUAGE THEY USE ON CARD APPLICATIONS: WELCOME BONUS OFFER NOT AVAILABLE TO APPLICANTS WHO HAVE OR HAVE HAD THIS PRODUCT.
There really isn’t much wiggle room in that. If you have had a card before, you will not receive the bonus. Sometimes you’re able able to get a bonus again if you’ve had a card many years ago, but best way to be sure would be to check with Amex what cards you have and had in the past.
This offer won’t be available to many people, but hopefully some of out readers received it via email. We had never seen a bonus this high for the Amex Delta Gold card and the spending requirement is very reasonable at $3,000 in six months. Even if you are targeted, the offer contains the lifetime language, so you won’t be eligible if you have had this product in the past.
