Over the last 5 days I am 5/6. Amex Blue card, Amex Hilton, Citi Diamond, Saks Fifth Ave, and Jared jewlers. Only denial was a CLI for Barclays, I am not sure of the denial. Didnt say.
That is it for me, I got rid of all my wife's and my sub prime cards.... done with the crap one, orchard cards... they had their purpose. It is funny though, I had crap one cards, mine and my wife for a long time. I went through the process everyone else did and got declined both form my wife and I for increases. So I closed them once they said no... Then I get approved for this Saks Fifth Ave account, which is managed by crap one... I wasnt aware until I saw the approval. I cant get away from them! I did receive a much better CL than I had on my credit card though... Now I let the garden grow....
the other cards I have are
Platinum Amex with pay over time feature
Citi Thank You
Local Credit Union Visa

TREMENDOUS JOB!!! I'm sure a great deal of hard work went into all your success.
You also mentioned that you went for the Saks card. I trust that is to get you to a no AF WEMC card eventually??? I litterally had that app half filled out when I closed the browser window because it's now underwritten by as you say "crap one". Just cut up and burried a Platinum crap one account that I'm still smiling about.
What limit did you obtain on the Saks card? Was it indeed 3 CR pulls? Where was your EX score when you got that card? All sincere interest thus the questions.
