I would think the Platinum is charge but I might be wrong.

No once applied you can't use it anymore unless.....

Unless....?
Plat is a charge card. SPG is a credit card. Once on phone and once online (or v.v.), then it's dead.
Whats V.V.?

Shouldn't be an issue.

100k Personal Plat is the best it gets. Go for it.

So just did my first AOR ever, and clicked submit on all the applications between 12:30AM-12:33AM EST. Instant results:

AMEX:
SPG Personal - Pending. "Call us."
SPG Business - Pending. "Call us."
Blue for Business - Pending.  "Call us."

CITI:
Prestige - Pending. "Call us."

CHASE:
Freedom - Instant approval.


Any advice from here forward? Call Citi? Call Chase? Call or hold off on Amex bc requesting multiple cards could be asked about? Any advice is appreciated. My priority is getting the Prestige asap so I can buy the Global Entry for a trip to Israel right after Rosh Hashana. But getting the others asap and minimizing credit pulls are obviously also important.

The business cards will prob need the tax ID, which is just SSN bc sole proprietorship, and maybe a couple of other bits of info. But will the multiple requests be a concern?

(Current cards: Visa from Credit Union x10ish years, Amex Everyday x8ish months, Chase IP x4-6 months, Citi Premier x3ish months.
FICO from early August - 762)

CALL, CALL, CALL! there is nothing to be afraid of.
And add 2 more Chase cards. I can almost guarantee an instant on another if you do 2 lower cards...

"Lower" cards?
Only other Chase one I was looking at was SP, which I decided to skip for now since I'll get no use out of it in the near future. Maybe if there's a promotion with increased sign-up bonus.
There are others that I'd consider in the right circumstances, but don't have the time to look into which ones I'd want over the next day to make it worthwhile.

You have no use for united, ba, southwest, ihg, Ritz, or marriott? They all have solid bonuses

I would definitely go with the csp now  especially because of the new 5/24 rules. It will only get more difficult to get approved for one
