AmEx is so lucrative for the MLA covered users that it makes sense to get multiple of many cards. When it became clear that people could simply apply for another Bonvoy Brilliant even while having one got me thinking if it would be possible to get another Gold AmEx while holding one. This would mean $20 in cheesecake every month on top of upgrading to two gold cards in a year!
On top of that the AmEx gold has $100 credit that will now work for American Airlines Gift Cards (back on as of 15 June 2019).
Any data points out there for this? Looking forward to more monthly cheesecake and free AA flights!
