Strange. It should be other way around (you got approved with Delta and got denied for SPG). Delta and Hilton are easier to get than other AMEX revolvers.

Trumpet, that's exactly why I applied for the SPG and Delta. I heard they were the 2 easiest and I kept getting shot down for the BCP. I applied for the SPG first and then the Delta.
That's how I got my BCE. I apped Hilton AMEX and PCed into BCE as soon as I got the card. Back then I had Zync (now closed) and I couldn't get BCE when I had 1 year of positive history with AMEX.

well Delta Skymiles can be PC'd into BCP/BCE so that works, easier to get in with Skymiles and get more bonus this way, since 30,000 miles= $300 instead of the $150 bonus for BCP.
but gotta warn you Delta Skymiles is definately the worst card in the Amex line up, can't redeem miles for anything anytime. Was trying to set an appointment for the advertised miles required for travel, and couldn't find anything even with 331 days booking in advance. You end up spending 2-3 points extra per every travel just to secure something. So yea get a Delta Skymiles collect the rewards and switch.
and yea I'm scratching my head how you got approved for SPG and not Delta.

Nothing 'easy' about SPG. Not only is the flagship AMEX revolver, you can do just about anything with the points. And they yield the BEST conversion rate of any other points based card. Take the SPG and be proud. I would recon b/c if you don't get it nothing else worse will occur. Won't be another pull. If you can't recon you certainly will be able to apply again for some other AMEX product in the very near future. You's scores look great!
