Logged into my Amex account tonight and saw the pre-approval for Plat, Gold Plus, and the Blue! I got my Gold card last week, but was denied for a Clear.
There's no way they'd now approve me for a Blue, is there?

None of the new accounts are reporting yet, but my updated CL and balance is showing on my EX.
Only 2 new apps on EX, 6 within one year, 7 in two years. Two apps become 2 years old on the 28th, but I feel like the new accounts will be showing by then.
UTL is 8% showing on today's report.
Oldest account is 14 months, average is 8.
Actually, my EX report looks pretty good. Better than it will in a week or two.

Yeah, that's ultimately why I set my sights on the Gold to begin with... Amex getting rid of the revolving accounts. I'll see how everything looks in a few months. This plane ticket I'm about to book through Amex travel would be nice to throw on the Blue and pay over a few months since it's 0% into.
I was surprised, Amex Travel had the major booking websites beat by about $200!
They gave me quite a few denial reasons on the Clear, I really don't think I'd get approved. Are their pre-approvals accurate?
