Thanks for posting I so want this card, no I do not know a back door number...so the pop up is kind of like the shopping cart trick on thee other cards I guess, but with an inquiry when you apply
I was also instantly approved for $1000, maybe that's their default "starting" limit? I plan to recon once I receive and activate the card, I'll let you know how it goes.
Good luck to you too, I hope I get a popup one day if not I will apply in 2 months when my util is lower
funny thing happened to me. i applied for the card a month ago and was declined. a few weeks later i logged into my totalrewards account online and got the pop-up. just applied and got approved instantly for $1500. hopefully i can get a cli when i activate. does anyone know how long it takes for the tier status to update? im going to AC next week and vegas soon and i wanted to get my platinum card from TR.
