Correct me if I'm wrong, NYers get pulled from Experian.

What is stopping someone for just continuing to apply and moving credit in order to gain approval? I just applied for 2, rejected for both, called recon and moved cl from other card and approved for both (separate calls). Theoretically I could just apply for more and continue to move credit until I have none left, and then just start cancelling on order to free up credit. The actual approval process seemingly means nothing. What am I missing? just the fact that they would flag you if its too excessive?

I can't say whether or not it's too excessive, though, I feel that at some point they would stop you--an issue you will eventually run into is the amount of new accounts you've opened. Even If bofa doesn't care, other banks will see the opened/closed accounts.

Would it even show as a closed account on my CF if I move the credit back to another card before closing it? I'm not sure that it would...

Correct. You can still downgrade to other no AF cards.
What other no AF cards? Anything good?

 Got 2 cards , don't have any more credit to shift and was told that I already have sufficient credit extended to me. Is there a point in applying for a 3rd. I know it can't hurt, but time is money. So, does anyone have experience pushing for more credit?

Im applying for 4 of these cards.

A. Should I make FFN before applying?
B. Should I put the same FFN on each card?
C. Do I just apply for 4 of the same cards in 4 separate tabs and just apply like that?

Is it that easy or am I missing something?

A. Makes no difference, but I always find it easier to make an FFN before applying for any airline card, it speeds up the card process.
B. Yes
C. Easier to do 1 at a time.

Not missing anything.

I just see that everyone else does 4 on the AOR's, so I assumed 4.
