Apping for two AMEX cards at the same time?

I want to apply for AMEX Delta Skymiles and the AMEX BCE, and I am planning on doing so on the same day sometime next month.

 

Hypothetically, if I am approved for one (Delta) will they use the same pull for the AMEX BCE, or will that be a separate inquiry and count as two hard pulls?

 

Does it matter if I app on the website or over the phone?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

It was definitely at gunpoint :smileyvery-happy: And the resultant backdate made my scores go up, and meant I got an AAoA increase :smileywink:. Definitely worth trying to get the two for 1 though, while if you can't backdate it will hurt your AAoA, it should help with ageing inqs together.

No score, I only got less than 1 month credit history. Only with 1 freedom reported on my reports. I applied the day when freedom got on my EX .
