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)
Throw in at least a Sapphire and why not a Ritz-Carlton.

I guess they are suspicious of the $200 or $500 purchases?


Do you guys get FRed when you spend around $2K a month?

Now I'm scared. Do you think FR is when they deny purchases for fraud? Because that happens to all of us but is no biggy. FR otoh...

how is amex with moving CL around from other cards recently?
Shouldn't be an issue.
-1 Unless I'm doing something wrong, I have tried shifting credit lines on new existing accounts, and always got denied due to 1 year policy on new accounts. I've tried multiple times via chat, and phone with no luck.
Life is as good as you make it...

Yes (and you can even do more cards if you'd like).

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

The what now? Sorry, don't keep up to date on these things. 5/24?

While the 45K UR points are obviously valuable, I don't think I'll be using them any time soon, so can wait for the SP app. I didn't want to take on another card with an AF, since I'm not experienced with methods to avoid paying without actually cancelling, and don't want to do cancellations.

Chase has been denying some people new cards if they got 5 new cards (including au's) in the last 24 months.
