Thanks.

Yes.

You believe you will get the points even though I assume you have had and  Gold and Platinum in the past?

FYI-- I had gotten points over an over for my Amx Hilton when upgraded card-but last time I was denied

I now have 5  AMX credit cards open and 1 charge card -- want to apply for 20k BLUE- thoughts  or data points

a) first cancel 2 credit cards?

or

b) apply after denied offer to cancel?

also, want to apply for GREEN business so that I can upgrade to gold for the bonus as AJK did at same time

been with Amx 44 years- not so easy to get cards now from amx

I need a few suggestions if anyone wants to weigh in.

Chase
I am currently 2/24 with a CSR and SW premier. I would like to max out my 5/24 before applying for any personal amex cards. I would like to get a SW card (I was previously declined for biz) to complete my companion pass qualification earnings. I have eyes on the Ink, BA, United Club, and Marriott as well. With Chase being the way they are as of late, should I risk going for 3?

Amex
I have a DL gold biz as well as a DL Plat biz, both credit obviously, and would like to eliminate one to open space for other cards. Any reason to keep the Plat if I already earned the MQMs?

BA you can save for after you're over 5/24

True say. I'm leaning towards the ink but I'd prefer not to do biz and personal unless it's that much better.

How clean is your CR? I would go Ink Preferred, regular UA if you can get an increased bonus or biz if you can't, don't bother with UA Club card.
Regarding amex, downgrade the DL plat to a Delta classic and then close it.

What do you mean by clean? I have no missed or late payments or derogatory remarks. Are you suggesting the IP and UA in addition to the SW, totaling 3? Will do with the DL.

Why not the CSP?
Amex doesn't report to the credit bureau  for 60 days so you can do DL now.

CSP isn't worth much to me at the moment, and signup bonus could be better. I'm not in a rush to get rid of the DL, I just want to make sure it's gone when I want to apply for another card.

I had never heard of this. Does that mean that my Amex personal applications on May 30th have no impact on 5/24 until the end of July? How long do Citi apps take to appear on CR?
