FNBO Pre-Approval, Applied and instant Approval

Yesterday i recieved a pre-approval for the FNBO Amex, i mulled it over and thought what the heck i'll give it a try but i want to see if i can get the limit increased on my HiltonHonors Surpass card first, boom 3X increase to 3k approved.  Now high on my success with AMEX i submitted the FNBO app, i waited about a minute and it came back as Approved.  I was surprised because reading a lot of other expereinces FNBO likes to manual review apps but i guess that mine slipped through. EIther way Woo Hoo.

 Congrats on your approval!  FNBO has been really promoting themselves as of late.  They used to manually review every app, its possible the computer is now helping make decisions based on the huge influx of apps, and manually reviewing others.

FNBO has another feature you'll like SP CLI I was approved last month and i'm so looking forward to those and from reading before I app'ed you can ask every 3-4 months if you have any pre-approved CLI's waiting for you.... Wooo Hooo 

Enjoy your new card

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
