This deal is still alive!
I received 2 of the Amex promo cards last week and charged $1 on each of them.
They now each show a negative $249 account balance!

You never got a bill? You’re first statement showed -$249?

I paid ebay $1 for account fees.
Another easy way is to pump in half a gallon of gas.

at first i didnt get approved bc i wrote my social as my tax id so they wanted a real one so plus proof so i called and said it a self run… and they approved on the spot.(i sugest leaving the tax id blank instead of putting your social)
does anyone know how long it takes to get in once your approved?
bc im a starwood member and im staying in a hotel next week and it would be nice if i could get the gold status in time?
or is there a way to get the gold status before i get the actual card?

Dan

Once it shows approved online you can ask for it to be overnighted to you.
Also in many cities you can get it reprinted the same day.
You will need your card number to get the SPG gold status.

I have a Amex Charge card with one business name. Now I applied for a Delta Business card (tried twice already), with a diff business name and I do not see the card when I check status of the card, (only see the charge card from a while back) Do you think its because I used a diff business name?
