I have a delta and I plan to apply for another amex but not for several more months.  At my 1yr mark, I am either going try to get the af waived or convert to blue then.

Congrats on your Delta card!

I'm a firm believer in avoiding Amex product changes if at all possible.  If you want a Blue, I'd say you should apply for it directly.  The reason I say this is that when they start reviewing accounts to see who should be FR'd and who shouldn't, I'd rather be holding a card that I knew I could get by applying for it directly rather than sneaking in through the backdoor.

About FRs......has anyone ever posted of being FRed more than once? If so was it at least a year a part? Remember, I was FRed like 3 weeks ago and that was really annoying. Not something I want to go through again!

Re: AMEX Delta Skymiles

Does anyone else have a Continental FF account?

I applied for the Delta Amex when Delta and Continental were in the same alliance. Now that Continental is switching, I'm wondering if the Delta is really going to do me any good? Should I ask for the Hilton amex (double-dip points/miles) too/instead?

Do you have the Delta already?  Are you thinking about apping for the Hilton directly?
 
I don't think Amex will product change from Delta to Hilton.  I'm pretty sure they will only PC to one of the Blues or to Starwood.

Re: AMEX Delta Skymiles

I have the Delta already. I don't necessarily want to PC, just have a more useful card. I have most of my miles on Continental. I also have the Continental Chase card.
