Re: Opened 2 accounts recently - how long to wait to apply for my first Amex?

Actually, I think there's a rule that you have to wait 30 days if they deny you before you app again.  I would app for the Green and the SPG at the same time.  It will most likely just be one inquiry. You can always cancel the Green later.

That's what I was thinking of doing. If I had to call recon and Amex would only approve one card, I would definitely go with the SPG....

General rule of thumb, if your going to app for upto 3-4 cards, do it all at once, so no one will know of eachother's inquiries before it's too late, just don't be a dumbass and app for more than 2 cards for the same issuer on the same day.......... i'm staring at the store cards people..............

Re: Opened 2 accounts recently - how long to wait to apply for my first Amex?

Thank you!!! I will consider a PC after obtaining and redeeming those Skypesos lol. I got a 45000 miles deal for 3k spending deal, so it will take a couple of months.

 

By the way, for those applying for Amex in the future, they pulled both Transunion and Equifax on me. Not sure if they also pulled Experian.
