    Can you still qualify if you already have an AMEX card including a corporate card (not small business though). Please let me know. Thanks!

    i also got in on this around Oct- Nov and got my bonus 25K points, which I redeemed for Home Deport GC…but my wife applied for this in Jan, and I got some literature in the mail with the card saying nothing about getting 25K bonus points….only 50 points….anyone else?
