Right, but in my situation, with all of the anxiety of being approved, if I had gone big and got denied I would have never known that I could have gotten the regular gold. Over the course of the year the difference between the two for me will be negligible, but the 25k bonus hurts, that's like $250 cash.
Yeah, that's true. I agree with you here, especially if you had been declined.
Right, the 25K bonus would have been very nice. It'll give you a nice little boost on your MR program.

I doubt there is a difference. All of the cards after green are npsl, so if you get a green with npsl why wouldn't they approve you for a gold/pr gold/platinum card? The spending limit ends up being exactly the same for each of the cards and you are just paying for extra benefits.

because with the PR Gold, they are giving away free money. If they don't think I am in a financial situation to spend 30k+ on the card, why give me a $250 bonus when they can deny me and make me settle for the regular where they don't give away anything other than waiving the fee. Noone will ever know...I'm happy.
