For me I had around 650 a year ago when I got accepted for the platinum select. This past month I had a 680 and got approved for their citi thank you preferred and AA card. All of them were instant approvals. Hope this info helps.

I see a lot of people with the TYP.   What are the benefits of it (unless used in partnership with the Forward)?  Forward just seems a more useful card, so just like to know why it is popular!

well has any fallen off since October? You stated you did an app spree and were denied due to too many inquiries. Looks like you need to wait til October or so to give them ~12mths to age.
