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.

Starting Score: 686 TU / 683 EQ 01/17/2013
Current Score: 703 TU / 691 EQ 10/04/2013 / 688 EX 11/12/2013
Goal Score: 700 across all three

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.
