Am I technically out of the garden if the Amex denial was a soft pull? I was never clear on that.

I did try the preapproval sites, but they didn't come up with anything.

It looks like it's down to the Chase Freedom and the Citi Forward. I have to say, the $100 bonus on the Freedom looks mighty enticing, although I do remember there being times when they offered $250 or even $300.


Ok im lost only one person said app Amex which was bad info IMHO

everyone else said freedom or student card from Citi 

So sounds to me as if you just wasted a HP please tell me you didn't app Amex?

No, I apped for Amex BCE a few days ago and was denied, but it's OK as it was only a soft pull because I already have the Zync.

The only reason they gave was "length of time with American Express is too short."

Almost, since August.

At this point I'll probably wait on that card until January so I can get maximum backdating.

Thats why I asked yes yes yes 

YMMV but freedom and citi student would be good chances of approval especially when they see $5000 credit limit with Amex

Go to chase and Citi sites and see if you have any pre-approvals

IMO, wait to see if Barclays gives you an auto CLI. It's been 6 mos so you should get one- then app for the Forward and/or Freedom.
