YES! I got approved for the Clear, Delta, and Green all in one day---2K, 2K, and NPSL respectively.
My EX pull was 696 w/ like 15% UTIL, and like 8 Inq., and four new accounts within the last three months! Awesome, huh?
0% APR on the Clear for 12 months! Yayayay--guess who's going to the UK this summer after my 3X CLI?!?
UPDATE: Got appoved for Paypal Extras--1K. Going to call right now for recon.

Fabulous, I can't say for sure, but in my experience, GE doesn't seem too inquiry sensitive. In my case, they ran TU when I applied for Wal-Mart, Banana Republic, and TJ Maxx. I opened the first account six months earlier and then two on the same day. The last application was still approved, but I had to call in to verify some information first and my credit limit wasn't as high (just 800), although I did get the Mastercard version of that as well. Hope that helps.

Thank you, SFernandez!
I app'd for the PayPal MC and Gap Visa--and they approved me for the PayPal MC w/ $1K. And the Gap...they only wanna give me the store card!
So...what should I do??

OMG...okay, so I need to go in the garden. With the rate that I'm going...AmEx will not approve my 3X CLI in a month when I request.
When they SP, do they see my new inquiries? I'm embarrased to say how many there is...it's so addicting--you get a high off of the approvals---ugh, bad Derek, bad!!

BearsandTurtles, they pulled TU which is really clean, but I have several newer accounts including two opened last August and two last October, and this was the second application of the day (Why do I always open accounts in pairs???). My utilization is much higher than usual at the moment too.
I'm sure it wasn't the best time to apply. I'm just glad I got my foot in the door and got the Mastercard version. It seems like they're pretty good with CLIs though.

WOW i ask beacuse I rarely see any approvals for the TJMAXXMastercard until i saw your post. But yeah 800 will grow immensley! At least you got the Mastercard! Congrats GE LOVES YOU

Oh, that's funny. I thought maybe I had the tiniest limit you'd ever seen.
If GE loves me, I think the feeling is mutual. I have a few of their cards, a few with US Bank, and a few with Comenity Bank, but it seems like it's much easier to grow with GE.
