Amex BCE...FINALLY

So here's the story. I applied for the platinum on Monday and they requested access to my experian because its frozen. I gave them the pin and they then asked I send in form 4506-t which I refused to do. Not because I have anything to hide but reading thru the forums it seems like a lot of sensitive info for them to have access to. So I canceled the app. In anger, I applied for the bce again, even tho I'd been denied back in January. I got a call from them today, and they said they needed access to my experian. I asked why they couldn't use the report they pulled a couple days ago and they said it wasn't possible. I said screw it and gave them the pin, fully expecting to be denied. Holy crap I was approved !!!!!!
