I applied for plat and delta. I was approved for plat and denied delta. Called and they say there's nothing they can do, since the info from my report isn't sufficient for them to approve me. Any advice?

AMEX called me today about my app for a 5th SPG card.

They said the new policy is max of 4 credit cards.  I currently have 6 credit cards+3 charge cards so I'd have to close 3 credit cards to get another approved.
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.

Does that mean if I have 2 active amex I won't and do a 3bm then I for sure will get denied one?
And 4 charge and 4 cc?

In such a case that they will make me close a card in order to approve the other one, would AMEX transfer CL from one CC to another like chase does thereby carrying the old one?

I applied for the amex premier rewards card today after dan posted (Thank dan!) that the 50k deal is back and i was instantly approved,

I then applied for the delta 45k card but app is pending.

Should i call reconsideration? what are my chances to get approved for 2 cards at once?

If you want you can call, but if your credit is good, you should have a good chance of getting approved.

Do they count business cards also?

I made an application for someone and they are still "in Progress" 72 hours later. Is there anyone I can call besides the regular number? Each time they say its being handled by another dept.
