A couple months ago I got an Amex businesss card. Apparently my SPG number was input wrong into the form and Amex assigned me a new SPG number. I did the $5k min spend with in a few days of receiving the card thinking it would probably be a month before the points posted. Well they never showed up so I contacted Amex and I was told they had the wrong SPG membership number. They updated the number and told me the points should post in 3-5 days. They did not post so after 7 days I contacting them again and I got a more knowledgeable person that told me two statements must post before the points will be transferred. I never made another purchase after the first statement and therefore never received a second statement. The points are now showing up in my Amex account but there is a zero balance in my SPG because I have to wait for the second statement to close. So this is just a heads up since the bloggers have been pushing this SPG card, not that I signed up due to them or anything.
