Going with AMEX definitely was the right decision for me. 6 month CLI to 18k approved. Booyah!

No mortgage application yet. I'll probably look at that again in a year. Next step is probably letting AMEX report the new limit and then go back to my CU. I've been with them for two years at that point and my CC limit with them is less than 10% of what AMEX is giving me and less than 1% of my annual income now...
