Make another or leave blank?
Make another one.
That being said, when was the last time you had the card?

wow she was tough. i trued everything. told her i want to keep busuness expenses and personal expenses seperate to make my life easier. if i wanna pay 2 annual fees to make my life easier, then why would they stop me? etc . she told me i wouldnt get the bonus twice anyways so why bother so i told her im not in it for the bonus, i just want to make my life more organized. she says sorry cannot pprove unless i close out the first one that got approved. i offered to close my hyatt; answer still no. i said well its not the same product; one is a plus and one is premeir, they just happen to accumulate the same miles; she says no it's still the same product.
i would HUCA but arent there reports of HUCA not working bc chase reps write extensive notes ?

Possibly a new thing, though can't hurt. You can try SM'ing also.

I got approved today on the phone with reconsideration.  I prepared which card I would close to get this approved. 
First he put me on hold to review the application.  Then he came back and told me the same thing the letter did.  Not enough time passed since my last new card.
He added that the new card is also a SW, like I am trying to open. 
I told him that I want different cards for diff types of spending. Like a health savings account (do they still have those?) and other specific types of spending I want separated.  And, I don't mind closing my united card and moving the 10K CL. 
[Actually, since my united has a balance we left 2K in united to keep the card open and moved only 8K to the new SW card. ]
Oh, he said, should I put this through reconsideration? Sure. 
Ok, then let me review certain information.  He then reviewed the income and home ownership and employment info that was on the application.  Then he put me on hold to put the papers through.
Voila!  My husband is now the proud (if unknowing) owner of 2 SW cards! [That was actually the hardest part- worrying that the rep would notice the 'male' checked on the application.]

Any reports of still getting the 50K offer even though we're past the deadline?

Does the AF on the card count towards the spend threshold? Also even if it does or does not, do you get 99 or 69 RW points when you pay the $99 or $69 AF respectively?

But you do get 6000 miles on your anniversary, so calculate if the $99 AF is worth 6000 miles to you. (Although, it's really 2 year's worth of AFs by the time those 6000 come to you.)
