It very well may be, like I said not sure :smileytongue: 

 

Did it say cancelled under the "App Status" page or did you get an automatic kickback saying it was cancelled?

 

If it was an automatic kickback the page might've submitted it twice just out of error, if it was on the app status page (and your last app was more than 30 days ago) I would just call and see what is up.

I think today is day 30. I'll wait a few days and then app again.

Yeah because until this day is over, you're still within 30 days. 

 

That is why most people will ask for their 3x CLI on revolvers at days 61-65ish rather than right on the 60th day.

Duncanrr, just FYI, I don't believe you are eligible for the point sign-up bonus if you've had a charge card previously.

I thought you were still eligible for targeted offers.

Re: Amex charge: go for Gold or minimize risk?

I'm sure customer service could clear it up within a minute if you call, but I noticed this when I was applying yesterday:

 

"Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any other Consumer ZYNC, Green or Gold Card or Platinum Card account within the last 90 days."
