I never applied for amex because I thought they were out of my league right now. What I have really been wanting is the chase freedom but I thought there would be no chance of that either. Maybe I have been eligible for better cards than I thought??
Why didn't you try for a real Amex?
I cannot believe your fico score has not been hammered by now with all the new cards. I swear to gawd if you go for the real Amex and get approved, I am applying now instead of waiting until March ..lol!!!

Thanks for the congrats everyone! I really am going into the garden to stay now. I was determined to garden but honestly, getting that preapproval in the mail was just too much temptation for me. I kept laying it to the side but it was all I could think about and it consumed me. I do not regret getting the card because I honestly believe that it will help take the credit limits on the my other cards to where I want them to be. But, I will be stronger when the next preapproval comes in. I have a good array of cards and they all serve a purpose for me.
