My last citi aadvantage card was opened about 18 months ago, but more recently I applied and was denied for an aadvantage card. My question is this: When does the 18-24 month "clock" reset? Is it from when I last applied for a card (which was rejected) or from when my last card was actually opened? (I think i once read the answer to this on the forums somewhere but cannot seem to find the thread- sorry for the repeat question)

Personally I don't think the 18-month-mark is set in stone.

It's a made-up invention to explain the YMMV'ness of the cards.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think there's some truth to it, in the sense that as more time has elapsed since your last card, you have a higher likelihood for approval.

Without a doubt, but I still think the number 18 is made up.

First time for any AA card, officially.

agree.
i currently have 5 personal active  citi aa accounts (2 bronze accts, and visa mc amex) so far i've downgraded twice to bronze, after getting 2 retention bonuses on each account (which is a fairly worthless card other than the no annual fee) and then use the bronze as bargaining chips for other cards and this has all been within the past 12-15 months
