Amex Delta Skymiles Gold Approved through Recon

Hey all! Just wanted to share my experience with Amex. I applied for a Zync card on 9/11/12. I was instantly approved with the NPSL. Given the inquiry I decided to apply for the Delta skymiles card. I was unfortuantely denied. I waited until Monday of this week (9/23/12) and decided to attempt to recon. I was first given the we need you to fax in an updated credit report. I hung up and called again and was able to speak to someoe who was willing to send my application for review with some additional explanation from me. I received an email today indicating that I had been approved. It is a low limit of $1000, but I'll take it! While this is not the best card from Amex, I am very excited to finally have a revolver from Amex.
