Thanks Amex! About freakin time!

Over the years I was able to get a card with every prime lender that I wanted, except amex. Thanks to the help of everyone here, I was finally approved today for an amex green! I really wanted the blue cash but i feel that I needed to get my foot through door! I have read that others were able to be approved for two amex cards in the same day and it only counts as one inquiry. Should I try for the blue or just sit back and garden? Thanks in advance

Congrats on the green approval!  Yes, I'd submit another app for the BCE today, since you don't have anything to lose even if denied.  Worst case scneario, you get denied and try again down the line once you've built good history with them on the Green.  That's what I did last June (approved for gold PRG, deniced BCE), and utlimately got apprvoed for BCE this January.  Let us know how it turns out for you.
