I have been thinking of adding a store card to the mix. There is a Dillard's near me, so that seems like an idea. But when I go to the website, they say I will first be considered for the Dillard's Amex, then if not approved will get the Dillard's store card.
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of store card?
I just got my Amex Gold, and I belong to Costco. I got a preapproval letter for the True Rewards but it expired in April and I never went for that. I've been buying stuff at Costco with the Gold card to see if that will trigger another preapproval. I'd rather have the Costco Amex than the Dillard's. I don't want to be too Amex heavy.

I strongly suggest you give them a call. Often, the notice happens because of an identity verification problem. I do not know if there is a GEMB limit. I got approved for 6 cards in two weeks. Had to call over several of them after getting the 7-10 day notice from Walmart.. then the decline for identity verification problems. In each case, I had to answer some security questions by phone. Call and say you want to speak to someone in applications and or fraud dept.
