what’s the date that Amex counts to start counting the 18 months for eligibility for sign up bonus points?
the 18-month wait period is plastered all over Point Hacks but it’s a bit hard to know when it starts counting.
Does the 18 month count from:
A) date of issuance/activation of amex card?
B) date of cancellation of amex card?
if it’s 18 months after cancellation, and it would really suck.
the best way would be to get the bonus points and then immediately cancel it, so that you can be eligible again within 18 months.
I currently have an active amex-issued card that I activated on 25-Feb-2016.
