Was pre-qualified for a 125k offer for Amex Personal plat, but got instant declined on application. What are the options and chances for a recon?

Ever had Amex before? Credit score range, Number of cards opened recently, credit inquiries etc all factor in.

As a DP, for my first ever AMEX I was approved for 2 simultaneously w/o calling recon - Hilton business and Marriott business.
Would’ve applied for a gold/platinum business as well but their super high SUB requirement is too much for organic spending.

IME amex biz cards are actually on the easier side for approvals

What does it mean when the card approval checker list shows
"dummy code"?

P.S. is there any reason why AMEX wasn't discussed in more than a year?

Called AMEX and was told I was denied as we reached the max for lending cards possible

I have

2 x per plat
1 x Biz plat
7 x Biz gold

Any data points if this is true?

Personally haven’t had me or DW declined in longer than that..
