Ok so haven't read up on this thread recently or the Flyertalk one, but is consensus now that if you have 1 Alaska card open, you won't get another, or can that still be bypassed if you get a rep who approves it. DW got 2 BOA cards 3+ months ago (Alaska and Amtrak), and today applied over phone and was approved for Merrill+. Figured might as well go for another Alaska, but then noticed a couple comments on Flyertalk about them not approving it if you have 1 open. Her account went to pending, didn't have her call yet. Any recent data points on here? Saw comments at beginning of March.
