I'm done for a while. Today was a success with 2 out of 3 cards approved! Amazon gave me this message after applying:
Thank you for applying for the Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card.

I looked up the back door number for Chase and spoke to a very nice guy who asked me lots of questions about collections and inquiries and after being placed on hold for 4 more times, he came back and told me he was able to approve me for a small credit limit of $500. That's ok, have to start somewhere. The results of today are:
WalMart = NO Discover IT = $2200 CL Amazon Chase = $500 CL
Do you know if they pulled EQ on your Amazon card?
