After getting my first scores last night, I went ahead and applied for Amex Green, Discover More, and the Chase Amazon Visa just now. Originally was going to wait until next month, but figured it wouldn't make a huge difference. Instant approval for the Green! Instant approval for Discover More! 30 day message for Chase. I felt confident about being approved for the Green and More, but was more unsure about the Amazon card so no surprises there. Should I call a backdoor number on Monday? If so, which do you recommend using? I know lots of folks here have recon'd with Chase.
I'm not sure what sort of CL Discover approved me for but on the preferences section it asked me if I wanted an alert when my balance reaches $2700. So I'm guessing $3000?
I'm very happy. Getting the Amazon card too would be nice but the Green and More were definitely more important to me!

Congrats on your spree! Absolutely call the backdoor, why wait a month?

I just called the automated app status line and now it says 7-10 days. I'll try a backdoor number after work on Monday! Maybe I can finagle a teensy credit limit out of them.

Update and let us know. Good Luck!

Checked the backdoor numbers thread to see if there was an app status line for Discover so I could find out my limit, but I don't see one. I'll just wait for the letter

Nevermind, I googled like a smart person. $3000 from Discover! Wow!

Congrats on the approvals.
From my experience:
30 Days - Denial
7-10 Days - Approval possibly pending verification
Definitely call in when you can!
