So, I chickened out and decided to go for the Amazon store card instead. I apped a few minutes ago and was approved for $1700. Having read these forums, I called and asked for more immediately and shot for the moon at $15k. They countered with $5k, which I accepted. I'm liking my little stable of cards (after I put that tiny VS card out to pasture).
