Grats! Now I'm tempted to ask for an upgrade too if there's no HP
I would say you have a decent chance enharu. Just remember, Barclays is watching if you add another TL... LOL! However, I think you'll be fine - follow the OP's strategy to see if you can upgrade it via SP.
Plus, both cards have great benefits IMO if you shop them frequently and have added flexibility using the AMEX anywhere else - I have both the Macy's AMEX Preferred (formerly Visa Preferred) and the Bloomingdale's Reserve AMEX (also a former Visa Preferred).

I was thinking about it...but I'm in the garden. Like you are enharu! :
Sorry 09Lexie... My bad - I wasn't aware enharu was in the garden. Didn't mean to encourage such tempting offer :-P

If they just gave you a $10k limit on Amex, and you only have $1k on store... You need to start requesting!!! every 3 months with store and 6 for Amex... although lately it's been said a few different things... but store is every 3!
you can do it online chat... they tell you hp but it's not... it's computer and they use the sp already in the computer.

@lexie, I'm still in the garden!
Not that I don't want to apply, but I can't. Reported balances are still too high as it is.
And since I can wait till August, I might as well wait till end of sept or early October. Might just reduce odds of Barclays AA by a little. If I open anymore new accounts before the 6 month mark I'm very sure they are going to close my account :/
Also might try to get pre approved for a mortgage next month, but still uncertain at this point in time, since a lot of the sellers seem to prefer cash offers over mortgage.
Just so you know we both are watching Lol
