Congrats! Those are some nice cards.
Did you decide against getting the PRG as well?
Yes. I am going to wait at least 6 months to app for the PRG if at all. I really wanted the BCP for the 6% and other benefits. Since I got it instantly and we already have the Green Amex and all aircraft gas purchases are restricted to 1 for 1 ratio of points earning, the PRG won't give me the double points anyway.
I may go get it in 6 months if NFCU does not come through. If it does, I will probably just forgo getting an Amex charger for myself.
In 6 months to a year I will be seriously looking at the CSP as well and since I have a Chase account, I will also have access to that potent Freedom, CSP, Chase Checking account triad.
Nothing wrong with that card but with my other options, I can avoid the 175 per year AF and still get the same benefits via the BCP such as Travel benefits etc etc.
I just couldn't justify it to myself with the other options currently in my wallet at this time.
EDIT: I say that with the NFCU card I probably won't go for the PRG due simply to NFCU's reputation of high limits. If they give me a high enough limit (assuming approval of course), I will be able to pump the fuel purchases through that card and PIF each month while still getting decent rewards via NFCU all without incurring a 175 per year AF.
Also...Thanks for the comments Thom02099, it means a lot to me when pros like yourself toss me their stamp of approval. You have some incredible cards in your siggy!

So did you call ?
I called NFCU but the rep did not have anything new to report yet. She said I am in the que for review and they are pretty fast most of the time...and not to worry.
I left it alone for now.
