Bold: Approved
SP Visa: Pending
UA Personal: Approved

Amex:
Platinum Card (Mercedes): Approved
Business Gold: Approved

Citi:
CitiBusiness AAdvantage: Approved

Barclay:
Lufthansa: Pending

Need another card to go along with my Ritz today. Hyatt or IHG?
I'd personally go with Hyatt, but that's just personal preference.

I already missed the point break so I guess I'll do Hyatt now and IHG some other time.

If I'm applying for biz Plat (targeted offer)  what else should I apply for? I only have a personal spg card. Never had anything else from Amex.

I want to do an AOR with these cards:
Chase: Ink Cash, Ink Preferred, CSP?
AmEx: Platinum, ?, ?
I might want to throw in a Discover and some other cards and or store cards.

 I am currently 4/24. I have never gotten an Amex.

1)I just got a CSR and an IHG in November. Can I get 2+ additional Chase cards within 6 months? Will recon be more lenient if some are business cards?
2)If I somehow get approved for 3 more Chase cards, is there a risk of subsequently getting shut down because I opened 5 cards in less than 6 months?

3) Any advice on how I should order my applications or any general tips for successful AORs?

Why would you do Discover before Barclay and Citi? Also, why would you even get the Target card at all?

Discover is a very nice card for some.
I wanted a Target card and CMIIW I figured it wouldn't have much of an impact on future applications with other banks.

Barclay AAviator is worth more than the Arrival.

What would the total number of pulls be for such an escapade?

Credit Card gives you time to pay.

What is the advantage of Debit? No hard pull?
