AMEX PRG APPROVED!

I just applied online (after finding out that the application that I did 4 days ago over the phone with a csr did not exist) and it was instantly approved. My TU fico was 744. I'm super excited to get my card in 7-10 business days :smileytongue:

Congrats! You may want to try for one of their revolvers. It will be the same credit pull if you applioed today. The Delta Gold is supposedly the easiest to get approved for.

That is certainly YMMV and not always going to happen.  Myself and many others have been hit with two when doing the charge/revolver combo on the same day.

Re: AMEX PRG APPROVED!

Are you going for the revolver OP??? If you wait any longer you may incur a 2nd HP.
