AMEX sign up bonuses_6 months interval
I cancelled an AMEX preferred Gold in July 2016, and am waiting for the 6 months interval before re-signing up for the bonus.
My understanding is preferred Gold is a charge card, so does the 6 months interval apply to any card on AMEX website or just the same types (credit card – credit card, reward card – reward card, charge card – charge card)?
For instance, if I wish to sign up AMEX British Airways Avios Card, would I be eligible for the sign up bonus and do I need to recount the 6 months from cancellation of AMEX British Airways to be eligible for sign up bonus?
Sorry if this is a silly question! Thanks for any question.
I assume you live in UK as the BA card isn’t available to US residents. And maybe the rules are different there. I’m not an expert but I was under the impression the 6 month rule was for increased lines of credit. More importantly if you received the gold card bonus before you can’t get it again, ever. Once per lifetime. Hope this answers your question
At least that’s the rule for sign up bonuses in the US. I would check the fine print of the application in the UK.
