I just got the card I've wanted FOREVER.
I applied KNOWING that I would get declined yesterday afternoon just to hopefully get on their softing/pre-approval list.
Some guy called me today, needed to verify my address with my bank, and said I was approved and welcomed me to the Amex family. I was speechless for like 2 minutes. I almost fainted.
I'm so excited. Couldn't have done it without you guys!!!!!!!
