OK, lol. I will simmer down now. The point of apping the Delta card was to get my foot in the door. I have done that now. I really want the BCE, but I guess that will come with time.


LOL I know its hard not to think of the possibilities once your approved for a card. I do this all the time too with all the lenders I get approved with  :smileyvery-happy:


It is really hard for me because I am so excited -- man, I'm a nerd. It is my first prime card ever, and it is in the amex family. I am bouncing off the walls like a little kid, as lame as that sounds, trying not to app for the it...lol.

Welcome to the AMEX family ! !

Sometimes with AMEX, patience is a virtue!  Like others have suggested, wait the 61 days and go from there.  Then in 13 months see where you can go and how AMEX is working out for you .

AMEX Gold NPSL / AMEX Zync NPSL / AMEX Blue Cash Preferred $14K / Bank of America Cash Rewards Signature Visa $15K / Merrill Lynch Plus Signature Visa $15K / Wells Fargo Propel 365 $15K / Chase Sapphire Preferred Signature Visa $10K / J P Morgan Select Signature Visa $10K / Chase Slate Visa $6K / CITI Diamond Preferred MasterCard $13.2K / Discover IT $10.5K / IberiaBank Select Visa $8K / 1st Command Bank Platinum Visa $7.5K // Home Depot $9.7K / Lowes $10K

EX = 768 EQ = 828 TU = 834 - June/2014

Nah its not lame! When I was approved for PenFed I was like calling them and posting a lot of questions! But its time to garden and remember keep your UTI low for the next couple of months so you have a better chance for the CLI at 61 days.

Congradulaciones! I'm not sure how AMEX works, but the norm is that it's usually wiser to apply for new credit on the same day. So yeah, good luck! 

Garden Mode... kind of... sort of (•‿•)
