AMEX 3x CLI... Should I wait?

AMEX 3x CLI... Should I wait?

So back in January I did quite a bit credit wise. I refinanced one car loan, took a second car loan, applied for Penfed Visa, and applied for a Delta Gold. I also managed to get a cli on my Cap1. In February GE gave me a cli on my Paypal MC. The last time AMEX did a soft pull the only things that had reported were the second car loan and the Delta card. At this point everything except for the Penfed card has reported. Utilization has been under 10% the whole time. Do you guys think I should wait until they soft me again or just go for it?

I'm close to 70 days and Amex still hasn't SP'd me twice. So you could be waiting for a long time...

 

I went for it on day 61 and received the full 3x CLI with 2 other brand new accounts and over 10% Util Showing at the time of my first SP.

Re: AMEX 3x CLI... Should I wait?

Hey guys, I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to update. I asked on the 9th and got the 7-10 day message. So it's no cli for me... I can't say for sure, but I think the second car loan is what killed my chances. I'll update again when the letter get's here if the reason is something else.

Hey Snack!

Where do you use to see soft pulls?
Can I still use annualcreditreport.com if I used it in less than 1 year ago? 

I don't have an Experian rejection letter, but I signed up for their credit monitoring. Does that show soft pulls?
What other sources can I use to see soft pulls w/o having to file any dispute?

Thanks!
