Are SPG Personal and SPG Business the “same product”?

Are SPG Personal and SPG Business the “same product”?

  1. DogMikey

    I just applied for the SPG personal AND business cards, and as with most of us, I got the message to call in for the business (instantly approved for the personal). When talking to the representative, she noticed that I had just been approved for the personal, and indicated that I am only eligible for [B]ONE[/B] SPG sign-up bonus, period. It has been my understanding that the personal and business cards are considered separate products, and we all, therefore, can each receive the sign up bonus once on EACH card.

    Does anyone have any experience in this? If I will not be getting the second sign up bonus, I plan on cancelling my business application, as I do not want to waste a hard pull on, essentially, nothing(the Sheraton club access is not really worth it…).

    By the way, I suppose this question can apply to any combination of personal and business AmEx cards, including Delta Gold, etc.

    Thanks a lot.

    They are indeed different products, but like all Amex cards the bonus can only be earned once in a lifetime.

    Have you had the SPG business card before?

    Have had the SPG business card before?[/QUOTE]

    I have not had either. My only other AmEx is the Delta Gold personal.

    To be clear, I should be able to receive the sign up bonus for BOTH the SPG personal AND business, once EACH, correct?

    Thanks a lot.
