Can you get Gold card welcome bonus if you have the Bonvoy card already?

    I believe yes since they are different card types but wanted to confirm?

    No – but you could on the Platinum. Rob did an updated article on the sign up strategy last week.

    Wait, aren’t the gold and platinum cards in the same family (both earn Amex MR)?

    NorthernLass

    Yes, but don’t forget the “any personal Amex” clause – Bonvoy is a personal Amex, affects gold but not platinum. It’s complicated, so you’re best off reading a few of the articles here and in other places.

    Shoot. I just got the gold card for no reason then, oops lol. At least it’s free for a year. Is it possible to “upgrade” to platinum and still get the platinum welcome bonus?

    No.

    The whole ‘family’ thing was scrapped in March 2019. Current rules here – https://www.headforpoints.com/2021/12/29/what-amex-sign-up-bonuses-are-you-still-eligible-for-2/
