The reason is that I read revolver are harder to get, and the spending 5k within 6 month. My husband just got the CSP, and CPC with $4k spending in 3 month. So I wanted to meet the minimum for these first before SPG. BTW, does AMEX do product change after 6 month to revolver?

If you just apped today and were approved, then you may as well give the spg a shot today. You have nothing to lose. you will only have the one HP, even for 2 cards - as long as you app on the same day. If you don't get spg, then wait until your credit history is better and app. 

 

I got zync and Costco on the same day. It's smart to app for the charge first since they are easier and if you are denied, you have to wait 30 days to submit another app for any Amex product. 

 

Eta: you can't pc a charge to a revolver. You can only pc within the same category.

No.  You can only do a PC from charge product to charge product, or revolver to revolver.
